Fishermans was closed before the covid19 outbreak. There was only a closed sign for weeks , now a fence. Closed because there is a section where the bank is unstable and it keeps sliding. 

Yes heard Stanley park is nuts busy with bikes.

Yeah - it was a bummer to see the wire gate go up on Fishermans.  But you can still get over to the FSR that heads out to the resevoir if you take the spur connector down.  Just don't bother on a weekend, that zone is nuts now with all the people that have discovered the outdoors.

Yes it's crowded for sure on weekends on the demo forest road but if you get out to the dam . Doing the lap thru Bear Island, stopping at lost Lake north is a great day out and very few people out that far. Seen zero in the last few laps thru there. Dunno what will happen with fisherman's , that unstable slope section needs a major reroute of some sort but looks like a difficult project to remedy.

So is there still a passenger train going up north into the province? The passenger line up through the Squish corridor is long dead if I recall but wondering about up the Fraser Canyon. Got some thoughts brewing for once the border opens up...

Thanks mucho. PG is a little further north than I'd like but I see Loops is a stop.  Gonna have to gawk at the map to see what the choices could lead to.

Wished BC Rail service to Lillooet was still a thing, man oh man.  Stick o' gum, sip o' water and you're back to the Lower Mainland in a marcha de la muerte day haha

Williams Lake would be a good drop off point too. Ride down through reserve lands into Dog Creek, to Lillooet and High Line it back to the corridor.

I wished they'd let you put a proper bike on the train out to Leavenworth, that'd be a high qual highly attainable trip back to SeaTown via mostly dirt.

I think they call this bikepacking but I just call it touring or motorcycle scale dual sport riding on a bicycle.

Ride More Bitch Less
