Summary:
A very good, physically challenging ride if your fitness is up to snuff. Actually, I have ridden it twice. In good weather, it's OK for most bikers. If wet, you'd better have better than average descending skills or you'll be in trouble.

Part of the Canadian Death Race trail.

Up the back of Hamel 2 km north of the Gun Range on Hwy 40 north of Grande Cache and then down the from back to the hwy about 40 km. On hell of a view and elevation gain.
