3 day 2 night bike camp trip.

Much of this route is in either Big Creek Provincial Park or South Chilcotin Mtns Provincial Park. Be respectful of Park regulations, particularly staying on trail and not riding scree slopes.

As multi-use trails, expect other trail users, as well as wildlife on the trails. Ride with caution, and give way to other users.

The region is home to significant grizzly populations, and take appropriate care with food in camps and when encountering bears, give them space and time to reduce stress on the animal.

 Rode this from Tyax Lodge via Relay FSR. Makes a great day trip if you don't want to spend three days camping and carrying gear. #tredswel115 #fastandlight

Lower Tyaughton Creek Trail - Castle Junction to Paradise FSR

Blowdown from Septembers storms cleared from trail head (TH) to Castle Pass intersection Oct.1 & 2. Remaining alder & brush cleared from old switchback skid road climb from TH to park boundary Oct. 3. There are still at least half dozen dead beetle kill leaning trees so they will likely come down this winter. Steeper, direct horse route is clear but has leaning trees that will probably come down this winter. Carry a folding saw, you will need it.

A 700 meter section of this trail has been deactivated on the east side of Pearson Pass. The trail now connects to High Trail South at the top of the ridge so there is one trail to the pass in this area. The old trail section is being rehabilitated, so please try and stay off.
