    Mount Elphinstone Provincial Park is located on the beautiful Sunshine Coast in British Columbia, Canada. There are a few gravel roads that travel through the park and offer the locals a great place to adventure into the backcountry and play the day away.

    We ride there a lot during the summer and fall, but thought we would ride up there this Spring and see where the snow line was at. The tires on our bikes are not meant for snow in any way, so we go as far as we can. After some slip sliding around, we decided to turn around at 666 meters (more like our tires said, GO HOME SILLY) . We will try again soon, as it is one of our favourite roads!

    Fun ride and great experience, I even managed to keep the rubber side down. [​IMG]

    The forest did look beautiful with the fresh snow. :-)

    Thanks for the report, I like the photos a lot. Hope to be in Egmont for some time this summer, and will need to find some dirt roads.

    Thanks :-). I know there are lots of roads up in the Egmont area, but I haven't spent any time up there yet as I keep getting distracted on the lower coast. Be sure to share your adventure if you go.
