A good logging road leads up the valley of Sage Creek and ends below the Continental Divide. Begin cycling wherever you please; I suggest starting about 9km from Kishinena Road, which still leaves some 20 km of mountain bike cruising. The cycling is continuously easy with a moderate uphill grade. The valley of Sage Creek is typical of the western slope of the southern Rockies. The creekbed is a sparkling artist’s palette of red and green argillites and black lava rocks. At lower elevations the forest is a mix of Douglas fir, pine, larch and aspen. As you move up the valley the effects of a long-past and major fire-storm are evident; much of the forest is deciduous aspen and alder with a few snags standing sentinel.
