Idaho Peak North Ridge - TRAIL

Idaho Peak North Ridge - Trail, New Denver, British Columbia

Epic climb and downhill. Doing it as a loop from New Denver means 42 or so km of riding with 5700 feet of elevation gain and loss. Climbing is on a very rideable fireroad to the summit of Idaho Peak and descending is on awesome combination of old mining roads (think eyeball blurring speed and tight corners), swoopy singletrack, technical singletrack, more swoopy singletrack with a few options of harder trails as well. Valhalla Pure in New Denver should have a very useful map of the area and further beta. Expect to be out for at least 4 hours if you are riding the whole thing.

Huge climb followed by a perfect downhill! One of the best rides I have ever done anywhere! Epic sums it up.

If you have a shuttle, drive one vehicle up from New Denver to the turnoff for Sandon and ride from there. Riding from Sandon is pretty much straight up hill of the bat, so the warmup from the pavement is nice. I guess you could shuttle to the top of the peak, but I figure pedals are put on bikes for a reason. The final 1 km of singletrack to the fire lookout summit is signed no bicycling, so you should politely push your back past the hikers. Don't let access become an issue here. There are several options for descending once you get into the lower network of trails, so it is best to have a map available from Valhalla Pure in New Denver or go with a local. There are also shorter options that don't go all the way to the summit - again the bike map is the best source of info for these.
