A punch-in-the-face climb if leaving from Lorna Lake. Quick access to amazing single track.

The west side of the pass is in Big Creek Park, the east side is in South Chilcotin Mountains Park. As with all BC Parks trails, ride this trail with caution and be ready to dismount for horses and give way to hikers or other riders.

NOTE: At the request of Parks, please do not post times to the leader board for this or any Parks trail. Respect this wish and help ensure the experience of riding in the South Chilcotins will be available for years to come.

       Per the description, would also recommend riding east to west... very steep coming out of Lorna. Really scenic either way

       Savage climb out of the gate, dry and loose makes it more difficult to get footing but ultimately pretty quick to the top. Grades ease at the top and provides for a great gateway to Tyaughton creek region
