Frisby Ridge Biking Trail

Rating: 5 stars.

Use: Biking.

Difficulty: Moderate.

Distance: 24.6 km return to the lake.

Description: Frisby Ridge boasts a recently developed alpine biking trail. This trail is a must do if you are a cross country mountain biker. Extremely well groomed, this ride is for any skill level. The trail ends at the Glacier House Cabin, the most northern cabin on the ridge. However, with enough time and motivation you could almost walk or ride the entire length of Frisby Ridge coming out above a logging road that goes high on Frisby. From this point it would be about a kilometre of downhill bushwhacking to reach the road. Refer to the High Elevation Traverse section for more details.

Directions: Head north out of Revelstoke on the Westside Road past the dump. Turn left onto the Sledhalla FSR. Follow this for 9 km until you get to a Y in the road. Go left for the Bike Trailhead and right for the ATV Trailhead.
