You start with an anaerobic climb on Lumpies Epic. The trail is filled with loose rock and has switchbacks and some technical tough bits. You gain 194 meters of elevation. At the top of the climb you are blessed with a view of Mt. Currie. Bring your Camera. The views are great!
At the top turn right; if you go straight you'll be riding Lumpie's Epic, which is fun too. Head down a bit and then hit a hike-a-bike section. Go up. Follow the granite slabs following a steep line limited only by your guts and your technical abilities.
After 45 minutes of riding, plus an extra hour of taking pictures and trying new lines, you'll be at the bottom.
Once you pass Nairn Falls Campground, keep an eye out for the turnoff for One Mile Lake on your right; if you pass it just turn around at the next left. If you get to
the Petro-Can station, you've gone too far.
One Mile Lake is about one mile south of the Petro-Can in Pemberton.
Go to the right at the lake. Take a sharp right after crossing the bridge. Climb, and then go left at the next fork. Go left at the wider trail, go up a bit, and then take the next right. When you get to another trail, turn left.
Along here you will see a trail off to the right; this trail goes to Nairn Falls. At the top of the climb, where you can see Mt. Currie, go right. Straight will take you down Lumpies Epic. At the bottom of the trail follow the signs to Nairn Falls Campground and take the road back to One Mile Lake.
