I went to the Chilcotins in 2010 and vowed that this would be a place to return to year after year. It is amazing how life seems to get in the way of these sort of trips and it took 4 years to return. This really is a mountain bikers playground with miles of scenic fun single track to enjoy.
Day 1 - Float Plane Drop to Lorna Lake - Big Creek to Elbow Pass - Tyaughton Creek - Spruce Lake (gear dropped here by plane) (5-6 hoursih)
Day 2 -
Group 1 - High Trail to Windy Pass - Spruce Peak Ridge Ride - High Trail back to Spruce Lake (6 hours ish)
Group 2 - Tyaughton Creek to Deer Pass - Trigger Lake - Hummingbird Lake - Spruce Lake (8 hours ish)
Day 3 - Gun Creek Trail - Tyax Lodge Patio ( 3 hours ish)
The weather was perfect - warm days and cool nights, no bugs and a great crew to ride with. The food was fantastic - from steaks to BLTs to the unburnable Yun Pup to dinosaur egg oatmeal. A lucky floatplane rescue of another group at Lorna Lake reminded us of how remote some of this area is.
