This is our first section of multi use trail built in Monashee Provincial Park, designed for biking and hiking use and great for trail running too. The Sol Lake trail connects Sol Mountain Lodge with The Ridge trail and trail to South Caribou Pass. It is 4.2 km from the lodge to Sol Lake, an advanced blue pedal up with short technical climbs and a ripping pumpy fun blue descent mixed with slab rock and open flowy sections of alpine singletrack. Ride from Ridge and connect to Beacon Check with a finish on Sassy Toe for 8 km of action packed descent.
Sol Lake is stocked with cold beer and great for swimming in the hot days of summer.
Put it on your list.

Access Info

Sol Lake trail starts at Sol Mountain Lodge - it is 3.8 to the lake.
