If you want to get away from the crowds without having to drive very far, the South side of the Highway 1 between Three Sisters and Exshaw has some great single tracks to offer. Expect very little traffic and less-maintained trails, but the running out there is twisty and filled with short and steep climbs and descents! Low traffic means more wildlife, so don't forget your bear spray at home.
- Distance: 10 km for the out and back on the Quebexican, 16 km for the TCT corridor from Dead Man's Flat to Exshaw and back.
- Difficulty: Moderate to Challenging
- Total Elevation Gain: 240 meters for the Quebexican roundtrip, 800 meters for the TCT Bow Corridor roundtrip
