The first Canadian trail named into BFG's Outstanding Trails Program.

This trail is full of beautiful scenery, tons of history, technical terrain, bottomless mud pits, and so much more. It is arguably the best 4x4 trail in Western Canada.

We began at the Granite Creek Campground in Coalmont and finished in the same spot. There was a couple of extra km on this loop due to scouting some new trails along the way or doubling back to check on other riders.

    I see you had jeeps with you on this run were they able to pass over the old train bridge?

    The year we had the jeeps we didn't cross the train bridge. I think that they would fit over the bridge though, there was plenty of extra space with the side by sides. The jeeps don't need to worry about crossing though, since there is highway access right in that vicinity.

    Thanks, Paxx I have to agree with you. Our Off-Road community ( ATBE ) along with 4WDABC and BC Toyota group have Stewardship of the Whipsaw and look after Lodstone and Wells Lake rec-sites.

    Done whipsaw a few times in my Jeep always start the trail from the highway 3 spot. Going this weekend with a few buddies in side by sides, was there a way to get the side by sides from Granite Creek Campsite to the trail without going on the road? We were planning on trailering them to the start on the highway and shuttling the cars back but if there is an option to avoid that... If this is an option would a 4 door Jeep also make it through or best to meet them along the trail?

    The only route I know takes you down the KVR and then you have to drive through some backroads in town up to Black Mine Road. You can access the trail from there
