The river is very low right now so it's super easy to cross. Everything is super dry and rather easy to manage at the moment. Absolutely beautiful...

Dry, rocky and technical. Easy river crossings.

Nice and dry. The riverbed had a fair amount of water, but I did not go all the way to the crossing.

 Nice and casual climb. Some exposure. Great descent. Could be a difficult river crossing depending on rainfall.

 Some of the most solid biking on the BCT. Climbs are rideable but require fitness. Descents are fast but stay interesting. Excellent scenery.
