A ROAD TRIP CHRONICLE
The Road To Haida Gwaii
Ollie Jones and Hailey Elise take it to the road and up through BC for an adventure on two wheels and four. The route took them from Whistler to Farwell Canyon, to Smithers, to Terrace and finally to Haida Gwaii. Over the course of two weeks, they lived off the road while exploring new trails of all varieties. 4x4ing, mountain passes, and beach drives all awaited time that wasn't spent on mountain bikes, and the result was an unforgettable adventure.
*Note: All water travel was within designated crossing areas, where driving was permitted or road wash out where no alternative route was permissible. Additionally, Parks Canada and the Council of the Haida Nation were contacted to determine what routes were in fact permitted and if there were any best practices that ensured the respect of the land and culture.
