Have not ridden yet... planning for next Chilcotin trip.

This ride is, in the words of Ron Burgundy, "...kind of a big deal". It's not the total distance, but the accumulation of vertical and the overall effort of the day that makes the whole package, particularly if you ride back to the Lodge from the end of Gun Creek Rd.

Definitely not for the faint of heart (or lung). You'll have earned your cups at the end of the day, with some great tales and photos to share.

      Trail is great. There is a second turn off past the camp, make sure you take the left fork or you will end up at the bottom of the Spruce Lake Trail and you will have to hike-a-bike back up to camp. reporter
