Hemiptera (Order: true bug) greets you along the upper section of CBT at a junction of Alpine Meadows and CBT and Hemiptera. Hemiptera is bidirectional, and rides well either way. The trail has short punchy climbs in sections and also some signature switchbacks of the local trail builder.
In the middle of it’s length, the trail pops onto an old access road for a brief section at it’s high point by the communications tower. Just stay on that access road until your see the signed singletrack back into the forest. Don’t cut down the BC Hydro Powerline road (unless you have other plans).
A prime use of Hemiptera is to reach the jump trail Hymenoptera. Hymenoptera branches off the top of Hemiptera in the woods just 100m south of the communications tower. It’s signed.
You can access Hemiptera off of CBT; or off of Odanata; or you can enter it off of the ski hill road (see the map).
