This is Randy's version of the Larch Hills Traverse that includes the maximum amount of single track that is available at this time (Sept 2020). This includes utilizing some of the smaller double track trails in the Larch Hills Nordic area. Better to ride single track than the road!

 One of the best epic rides in BC. If you love a long, classic single track XC epic, this ride is for you. Not as well known as it deserves to be..

 Any thoughts whether to ride as routed here, or from Rubberhead?
