Primarily a hiking trail connecting 2 cities, 3 BC parks and 6 riding areas.

Trail condition is highly dependent on recent maintenance in any given section of trail. If you don't know the condition of a section of trail from someone who has recently ridden or maintained it, be prepared to potentially encounter lots of downed trees and/or mud which may result in unpleasant hike-a-bike portions.

This trail could arguably be on par with the 7 summits trail or a Warner Lake float plane drop but is lacking the users and seasonal maintenance to make it epic.

       Several volunteers have hit this trail hard in 2017 to clear downed trees and repair bridges washed away in the flooding this year. Now, we are establishing a society to oversee the maintenance and improvement of this trail. Hit me up with a message if you'd like to check out the status with reclearing it after the late season wind storms this year.

       Trail from Oyama Lake to Monolith in excellent shape, a couple trees down but easily hikable even with some snow! With more snow you will lose sight of the trail very easily
