This perfect mountain bike trip is big on challenges and rewards. The ride takes you over Elbow Pass and Sheep Pass, then down the Sheep Valley, up and over Rickert's Pass, then down Mist Creek Trail to the south trailhead. This trip islong and arduous and not to be taken lightly. Cycle up the trail to Elbow Lake and enjoy the stunning beauty of this open valley as you bump your way along to the junction with the Sheep trail.

This is a great adventure ride, and can be made into a circuit by leaving your vehicle at the Elbow Lake parking area, and returning be cycling an extra 20 km, or so, over the paved Highwood Pass to make it 4 passes in the day.
