A busy trail that skirts the lake. Lake section is muddy in early season and after rains. As shown, this track incorporates a portion of the lower grasslands trail as well.

As with all BC Parks trials, ride this trail with caution and be ready to dismount for horses and give way to hikers or other riders.

NOTE: At the request of Parks, please do not post times to the leader board for this or any Parks trail. Respect this wish and help ensure the experience of riding in the South Chilcotins will be available for years to come.
