High Point

The grand and classic Cronin Pass. Located with Babine Mountains Provincial Park this amazing route will take you into the grand alpine. A bit of a slog at the beginning with unknown amounts of vegetation (it grows thick and quick in there) may make it hard to get through, but its worth it. Keep pedaling to the alpine before dropping into Silver King basin. Choose to stay a night at the log cabin (thanks BC Parks) or keep on riding down to Driftwood Road parking lot.

Cronin Pass

Pretty good shape until the creek, though still many large puddles you'll have to ride through. Not so deep to require ratcheting. From approx 8.5km to 11.5km it's very overgrown (as mentioned in previous report) and at times muddy. Quite difficult riding uphill in the mud while plowing through alders. Great shape after 11.5km. Descent between the two high points has a lot of loose rock.
