The Whipsaw Trail in southern BC, is an excellent multi-terrain 4x4 route with a great deal of history. Chosen as one of BF Goodrich's Outstanding Trails in 2007, this trail offers challenges for all levels of offroad drivers. The Friday Creek entrance is currently blocked, though, so drive 10 KM north on Highway 3 and use the Whipsaw Creek FSR entrance.

    This is a must ride trail for anyone that loves off-roading.

    First Canadian trail to be added to the BFG Outstanding Trails program. Has everything from bottomless mud pits, tight technical sections, gnarly hill climbs, great camping, alpine meadows and so much more!

    Can't wait to ride it again!

    Great trail, was lost after wells lake slot of short trails there that led my group on a wild goose chase for an hour but found the exit. Amazing views and great trail.

    2000 Nissan Xterra: 6" Lift 35" tires
    2015 Ford F-150 FX4: Stock height 35" tires
    Dodge Ram 1500: Stock height 35" tires

    Nissan and Ford had zero issues, open differentials. Ram got hung up once, had to be pulled by the Ford.

    Great trail, but this entrance is quite overgrown as of summer 2018. I have a 93 Land Cruiser and scraped both sides pretty bad and lost a fender flare early on. After it joins up with the fsr it is great. If I did it again, I’d go further up the highway and take that route

    I've done this trail probably about 10 times, most recently this past weekend (22 September 2018) after a 2 year hiatus.
    Generally a relatively easy trail but with some challenging obstacles should you choose to play on them. The weather can quickly turn up there and make everything a muddy/gooey mess (or snowy) very quickly! Stay on the trail and keep out of the meadows as this is a sensitive area! Some photos and (bad) video here:
