The Warner Lake float plane drop is 'The' go to ride in the Chilcotins, it is also officially an IMBA Epic ride. Expect flowing single track and incredible views. This is a long day in the saddle so make sure that you bring lots of water, a Gore-Tex jacket, a paper map of the area, spare parts, tools, food and whatever else you like to bring on all day epic rides.

For a shorter option you can also fly into Spruce Lake. You might also want to leave a vehicle to avoid the final climb at the junction of Tayughton Lake Rd and Gun Creek Road as the final few kilometers up to the lodge can be shattering at the end of a long day in the saddle.
