LEVEL OF DIFFICULTY:intermediate
ESTIMATED TIME: 1.5 hr ride/ 22 km
ACCESS: Begin in Sechelt, or follow the Sechelt Inlet road 5 km north of Sechelt to Porpoise Bay Provincial Park and park. On your bike, head 3 km back towards Sechelt and turn left (east) onto the Sechelt-Crucil Forest Service Road ( the Sechelt Landfill road). The description begins at this intersection.
ROUTE: The route is marked counter-clockwise. Proceed 4 km up the Sechelt-Crucil F.S. road past the landfill to a major junction. Portions of this initial section are very steep. Keep left at the intersection and follow the main line over level terrain for 7.5 kilometers. Descend to the Gray Creek crossing and follow the main line back to the highway. Turn left on the highway and ride over two large hills back and past Porpoise Bay Provincial Park to the start/ finish of the loop.
Trails are marked with a small white Mt. Biking symbol or, in the symbols absence, a double band of orange paint.
POINT OF INTEREST: Fantastic, panoramic views of Sechelt Inlet, Mt. Richardson, the Caren Range Plateau and the town of Sechelt are visible from the level section preceding Gray Creek. Ask locals about the great power line riding in this area.

Upside- Good exercise and nice (but obstructed) views of Sechelt Inlet Downside- Initial section went past landfill with trucks that force you into the ditch. - No visible trail markings (route fairly simple though) - Trail remained on dusty logging road - a section through the forest would have been nice. - Not technical CommentWhy was this trail initially rated 5 out of 5? Views are nice, but riding on dusty logging roads takes a back seat to a cool trail through a forest (like Robert's Creek area)
