Tomichi Pass

Tomichi Pass Professional Guide

Detailed Trail Description from our Guidebook

"If you are ready to try a difficult trail that doesn’t involve serious rock crawling, this is your opportunity. Views going up are spectacular but the driver won’t be able to enjoy them until he reaches the pass. Don’t start up the trail if someone is coming down even though uphill drivers have the right of way. The area is remote, so make sure you go with another vehicle. ATVs and dirt bikes will feel at home on the narrow trail.

You may have to back up a considerable distance if you meet another vehicle. There are no hard-core obstacles, but several places are moderately rocky. Do not drive this trail if it is snow covered. Snow sometimes remains on the trail in late July. Be careful crossing deteriorating log bridge at bog. Trail is suitable for stock, high-clearance SUVs with low-range gearing. Not recommended for novice drivers or anyone afraid of heights."
