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.
