Built in the Summer of 2017, this trail was funded by NDIT, and CBAC and created by First Journey Trails with the help from the Cariboo Mountain Bike Consortium. It was built as a bi-directional trail that would access the "backside" of Desous mountain and allow the first ever climb from the Fraser river up to the Spring House side of the mountain. The climb is rated black only due to a few terrain pinch points that force the trail to gain a significant amount of elevation in a short distance within the first half of the climb. Save for these few steep, rocky sections, this climb would be considered to be a blue climb as well as descent.

Access Info

To access the start of the climb, head west on highway 20 out of Williams Lake and turn left onto English Road. Approximately 800m off of the road staying on English Road, the staging area is found on the right (river side) of the road. Recreation Sites & Trails will be providing a proper parking lot in 2018.

Disclaimer

This trail is still under construction. Please refrain from riding and wait till the trail opening in the spring of 2018.
