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
