 Nice steady ride up to Summit lake from Nakusp. There are two wash-outs just outside of town that you can climb around if you're brave and right before Summit Lake a landowner blocked the trail so you need to ride on the highway for a couple kms then you can rejoin the trail by following a path through an open field. Near the end of the trail there is a toad rehabilitation project underway and it wont be long until the road becomes a swamp. You'll need to ride through some water and squash a few hundred baby toads if you really want to make it to the end of the trail.
