This trip is a big one. First you have to mountain bike up the Elbow River on a fire road to Outlaw Creek. That's about 16 kilometers.
Then comes a long valley with much scree.
But the trip is worth it. It's some of the most spectacular mountain scenery in the Canadian Rockies. I like this area of the Canadian Rockies. It's pristine.
