FATMAP difficulty grade
21km/950m Ascent/ 655m Descent. The trail begins by climbing an old forest service road (now covered in grass) for approximately 2km before ducking into a forested trail as you work your way upwards, eventually popping out at tree line.
After a significant creek crossing, the trail continues to gain elevation and the incredible views of the Southern Chilcotins come into view as you make your way up to Relay Col at 2000m.
From here, the route follows the Relay Col trail with significant climbs and descents.
When you reach Manson Creek, bare left and enjoy a long descent down off the ridge and eventually fully flattens out for the final run into Bear Paw Camp.
