|view from Castle Rock|
It's a great hike with 33 switchbacks and then long sections to the viewpoint. It seemed to take longer than I remembered in the past though I made it down to the car within 2 hours and before dark! 9-km round trip, 3300' elevation gain.
Sunday, went on a road ride counterclockwise around Windemere Lake fighting a nasty headwind. Looping back on Hwy 93, I jumped onto side roads Kootenay Road #2 and #3 that went through Reservation land. Continued on the Windemere Loop road which cuts past Swansea with a short section of gravel. Rode out/back to Wilmer which was short though hilly. My favourite road was out/back the road to Panorama except for the insane 18% section at the start. Total mileage 106 km, 4:15 hours, 4300' elevation gain.
|Trail not for Heights-Challenged riders! Amazing views!!|
Awesome weekend - Thanks Jeff for the stay!
