Stories of Zane riding his Mountain Bike in New Zealand

Canada – Chilcoatins – Taylor Creek, Camel Pass, Ridge then Cinnabar Trail

After 4 days of stonking trails in Pemberton we hightailed it over to Taughton Lake in the Chilcotin area to camp. They have a little campground just beyond the big flash lodge and spa there… which is also conveniently located for getting onto a float plane.

After a restful evening of camping we were awoken to the sound of a de Havilland Beaver first taxiing and then a roaring to takeoff down the lake beside us. It was a sound we got very used to. It was a long weekend and there were a lot of mountain bikers flying out to lakes in the mountains.

First day was good ole standard ride out, up a valley (Taylor Creek), over a pass or two (Camel and the up onto the ridge above Cinnabar creek) and down some singletrack (Cinnabar trail) to get back to camp.

A hut we found well up Taylor Creek.

From here it was further up, over barren high passes (Camel Pass) before dropping into meadows.

Then up further onto the top of a ridge before dropping along and finding some super fun singletrack  on Cinnabar trail to drop back to camp.
