Cariboo Chilcotin Coast
True Wilderness Singletrack
The name sounds ancient, like the people who first knew the land. Say “Chilcotins” to riders on any continent, and they will give knowing nods and likely admit they haven’t been there—yet. The South Chilcotins is pure wilderness singletrack. A visually spectacular area with mid-elevation grasslands, sub-alpine and alpine meadows, lakes, and mountains. Over 200 km (124 mi) of trails wind through meadows and along alpine ridges, with a variety of trip loops of varying difficulty and distances to tackle.
These are rugged, wilderness trails and to ride them you need to be prepared and self-sufficient. After a day of epic adventure, return to the comfort of a full-service lodge complete with a spa, a guest ranch, cosy motel, or a catered alpine hut.
