Canada Day long week-end we put in a three day traverse from Relay Creek and exited out the Little Paradise valley. There is a surprising lack of snow all the way up to 2500m.

Rat, thanks for the info.

How are the trails through the Hog creek drainage? When we went through there last year they were so overgrown you couldn't ride through big sections near the creeks, you had to push your bike through the brush.

still a bit bushy but better than it was a few years ago. I was on my trials bike and was able to ride through it all.

FYI the Jim Creek to Brett Creek section is pretty rad as well, as good as the traverse section in my opinion. although it would be more up and down terrain on a mountain bike.

Nice. Can't wait: we have a crew going up Canada Day long weekend with three campsites booked. Should be nice!

Has was the long weekend trip?

Were you part of the crew shuttling up to Cinnibar on Monday (Canada Day) just before lunch?

thanks for the birthday present Craig H. Craig H has not tooted his own horn, but he and his wife have done a ton of work on a lesser used route. a solid crew showed up for my birthday ride. all thanks to Craigs work, it was stellar.

Just a speculative fiction. No cause for alarm.

You're welcome! It wasn't just InaCycle [HTML_REMOVED] I; Chris2, Dalien, MarieB [HTML_REMOVED] MarilynH were a huge help. Couldn't have done it without them.

You're welcome :) (need an emoticon that is holding a saw…)

BTW - that is a great way to celebrate a birthday.

We got a lap in on the Shulaps last Saturday. Spent some time clearing some of the bigger deadfall on Brett and as of now there are only 2 or 3 trees down. Good to go!

Thanks for clearing of blowdown on that trail. Last (and only) time I rode it last summer, there were lots down. Was thinking of spending a day on it but you beat me to it.
