The towering, glacier-clad north face of Mount Goodsir is one of the most dramatic sights in the Canadian Rockies. It's a fitting highlight to what is an already beautiful ride. The trail is an abandoned fireroad that climbs up a deep and narrow valley. The trail is alternately in the forest or crossing avalanche slopes, but the terrain gives little warning of the scenic delights ahead until the very last moment.
