      this trail is closed to bikes by BC Parks - and not a super good ride away without contributing to trail braiding. Nice views, just stay on foot

       While this trail is hiking only, this site is used by all kinds of trail users to route find, etc as it is the best app to do so. For those that wonder why a hiking only trail is on Trailforks, that would be why.

       We should be adding support for other trail types sometime in 2017.

       Currently Trailforks is a dedicated mountain biking app, and adding hiking only trails is confusing and frustrating for riders who are trying to plan routes in new areas. I am 100% in support of Trailforks adding support for other trail types, but until there's an activity/restriction filter for trails it doesn't make sense to add hiking trails to the network.
