A surreal alpine trailhead on the summit of Toad Mountain that is rarely ridden due to the multi-hour approach that includes a bike portage up Toadmember and ridgeline hike-a-bike-a-bushwackin’ to the peak. Descends down the northwest ridge and is broken up by a few bike pushes before coming out at the old Toughnut mining area.
