LEVEL OF DIFFICULTY:intermediate
ESTIMATED TIME: approx. 45 minutes/ 12.3 kilometers
ACCESS: Follow Highway 101, 12 km west of Gibsons. Turn right at Roberts Creek Road. This road becomes Lockyer Road. Follow Lockyer for 2 km. to the corner of Gruman Rd. Park near this junction. For safety reasons ensure that your vehicle is completely off the road.
ROUTE: The route is marked counter-clockwise. Begin the loop by heading east along Gruman Road. After 500 m. an old skid road on the left leads through the bushes. Riders may choose this route although it is, in places overgrown and steep. Less intrepid riders will follow Gruman Road 1.8 km to a junction. Turn left on Clack Creek Forest Service Road ( a short cut is marked before this corner). Follow the road north and then west for 5 km. The road comes to an end and the fun begins. An old skid rail begins where the Forest Service road ends. Follow this trail for an exhilarating 2 km. downhill where you will intersect the East Wilson F.S.R. Turn left and follow the road for 2 km. back to the start.
POINTS OF INTEREST: Great downhill. Examples of “New Forestry” (shelterwood) along the route. The Brodie trail follows this route in places.
