Get into the Wild!!


Mountain Mavericks


Sample some of the classic backcountry, high alpine and broad valley single track mountain biking that the South Chilcotin region is renowned for-whilst staying 2 nights in historic and well-equipped backcountry camps by Tyax Adventures.

This program is suitable for riders ages 14-18*

We begin the 3-day adventure by pedalling into the South Chilcotin park from the Tyax Adventures Basecamp.

Over 3-days your Tyax guide and Hilltop MTB coach will uncover the magic of the Chilcotin range as you pedal/hike a bike over remote mountain passes, travel through stunning alpine meadows, cross creeks, and experience a variety of different terrain and ever-changing signature rolling single track that is technically challenging in sections.

Riders can expect to ride 20 to 25 kilometers per day – being on the trails for anywhere between 5 to 6 hours.
