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 rolling Frisby Ridge with views in all directions. From the high point dips down to a small lake where you either turn back or continue along the alpine ridge an other 6 km on Frisby Vistas 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.

 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!

 Is this open? A guy in a local store told us it is open. But reports here are conflicting. Was hoping to ride it today..
