The Wildhay trail offers the quintessential Willmore Wilderness cycling experience. It is a land of wide valleys and long-distance trails, and the combination of true wilderness, splendid scenery and a solid trail make this one of the outstanding backcountry rides in the Canadian Rockies. This trip is a good candidate for an overnight cycling excursion. The riding is generally easy with minimal elevation gain and the upper end of the valley has several optional trips that will keep you more than occupied. This prime wilderness country is popular with both equestrians and hikers; protect your right of access by treating other users with respect and consideration.
