This is a highly recommended out and back epic mountain bike ride. After reaching the high point, we do not suggest riding down to Lake Okataina Rd as the climb back is brutal. You are better to simply turn around at the high point and ride back the way you came.

|Track very rutted from rain leading in and out of streams. I’d say about 10% unrideable. Apart from that just beautiful. Not for the novice.|
