I really enjoyed Frisby Ridge as well.

also a great trail…the GF and I hit that at sunset end of August, pretty much knowing we were the last ones on the trail was awesome, it can get busy, so it was nice to be able to go at a good pace….more stunning Revy views too.

  • Treasure Trail, Squamish
  • Wizard Burial Ground, Whistler
  • Angry Midget, Squamish
  • Paper Bag, Nelson
  • Rio, Kamloops

Top 7 Trails??

Any trail that my wheels touch is in that group of seven….even the ones where I'm in so far over my head that I walk more than I ride (and there are LOTS of those!). Kind of sappy, but it's true.

If I had to do ONE loop for the rest of eternity…(you know as a reward for a lifetime of being awesome) it would be on Prevost:

My top 7 trails are ones that I haven't done before, ridden with friends.

Biking for me has always been the adventure shared with your closest riding buddies.

We've done the same thing, being able to descend without having to stop for people climbing up the trail was a bonus.

The bugs up there can be brutal though.
