For mountain bikes, the Bee-Line Climb is best approach from the picnic table on the Chief Isadore Trail, and which can also be accessed by using the single track connector from the bottom of Espresso.

The biking route deviates from the original hiking trail at 5 locations which might be marked by double rock cairns or signs. The first detour is on the right, and the rest are on the left. To reach the Bee-Line DH, exit the hiking trail on the left a final time after 1.4 km and continue climbing on Upper Tapeworm.

The climb is steep and difficult but there are numerous flat sections to help you catch your breath.

Note: Bee Line is a popular hiking trail so please be cautious and yield the right of way to anyone you meet.
