Sunday, July 14th - Hatley Castle Exploration UPDATED

Post by schouten » Sat Jul 13, 2019 10:37 am

I feel like going on a good CX ride to make up for my lazy explorations of Tofino. All riders, with no exclusivity, are cordially invited. :D

I don't expect much in the way of hike-a-bike (famous last words I know) but I'm always up for nonsense:

I'd like to explore the Royal Roads trails as I don't know them very well and will possibly/probably tack on the Langford lake loop too. I'll propose a Strava Route soon (still pouring over maps).

Here's an idea (sans-Langford Lake): https://www.strava.com/routes/20244572

I'm really curious about Mill Hill as this could make a nice connector into Hatley Castle. How verboten is it?

Nic and the Scotch Cross guys have ridden it lots, I think. (Not that that’s a clear indication either way!)

Ridden is a strong word here. Good trails, mostly ridable, but plenty of hike-a-bike parts (stairs and steep rocky bits).

Okay, sounds like this should be on the to-do list...
