About 10 trees down throughout the traverse, but considering thats about 40km thats not bad. Most of them are down in the Sicamous switchback....

 Indeed an epic trail. Once away from the Larch Hills x-c ski trails the LHT is predominantly single track. The trail is very well marked with orange squares nailed to trees about 8 to 10 feet above ground - there are lots of them. Trail junctions are generally well marked indicating the direction of travel. The Switchback trail down to Sicamous is a real blast. It would be great if the tight switchbacks were bermed to provide better flow and safety otherwise proceed with caution - some of the tight turns love to dump you down the hill. I would highly recommend the LHT to all fit and experienced mountain bike riders. The trail would be a drag in bad weather. Ignore my previous cryptic comment ( it was a correction to a comment which did not post).
