2019/09/10->15 Elizabeth Mine — Another trip with James

I’d noticed a mine site off the Yalakom FSR when looking at the GPX track from the ride to the Loose Screw, and James was keen enough to go back and check it out. We also found some “new” track along Mission Ridge, and met up with Franky, Mladen and others at Laluwissin.

The mine site is the Elizabeth mine, the best info I found about it is here: http://minfile.gov.bc.ca/report.aspx?f=PDF&r=Minfile_Detail.rpt&minfilno=092O++012

The Mission Ridge track needs some work, as the East ends have gates. The gotcha is the steepness of the Bridge River canyon (there is only one bridge), and the long stretch of connected First Nations land. Both Cooma (main) and Ama Creek Rd are gated. So the route needs more research before being introduced as mainstream….

GPS track.

Hhm. Not mentioned is the fact I had carb trouble that was bad enough that James and I didn’t spend a day running around Laluwissin :(

2019/09/08 – JDF ridge, W100 (loop) with Chris and Colin

I really didn’t expect this to come out as a loop, but it did, with a short hike to a fantastic tea-hut.

So, the surprise for me was that the W100 gate at Loss Creek was open.

There are pix (on FB), and I have video. They should come in the future. Was a nice no-nonsense ride with three similar bikes and riders.
