This is a purpose built mt. bike trail, constructed by bikers for bikers. A truly great trail with magnificent views, abundant wildflowers and excellent riding. The trail climbs from a cutblock up through a very impressive mountain hemlock sub-alpine forest and into the alpine meadows, cresting on a rolling ridge with views in all directions. From the high point dips down to a small lake where you turn back or continue an other 6 km on Frisby View trail.

Access Info

This is a wilderness trail. Be prepared with lots of water, spare tubes etc. Watch for bears.

Turn left off Westside Rd onto Frisby FSR. Follow signs on the FSR 9 km to the Frisby Ridge Trailhead. The road is 2 wheel drive accessible but we recommend a vehicle with some clearance.

Don't ride above tree line this year anymore . Turn around once you hide the views.

Light dusting of snow at the top, really grippy conditions, a bit cold on the way down so bring some layers!

Perfect for riding Frisby right now. Trail is in great shape, the smoke is gone and there are no bugs. Get after it before the snow flies!

 Things are getting pretty wet once you get above tree line. To keep the trail in good shape for next year I ask everyone to not ride past the tree line for the rest of 2017.
Please respect the trail!
