Elbow Loop is an outstanding mountain bike trip along former four-wheel-drive roads through spectacular high mountain country. Now closed to motor vehicles, the roads have reverted to trail status and the whole area is now part of the Elbow-Sheep Wildland Provincial Park.

Awsome trip we do regularly in July. Mid July the glacier lillies are everywhere. Best done clockwise...one has the flat stretch to warm up on and a killer 18 km downhill to finish. There is a great little lunch hike in to Tombstone lakes from the pass (4 km return). Camp at Beaver flats and check out the walk-ins, some of the best anywhere.
