Numerous people have asked me about this route, and why it isn't in Bivouac. I would certainly like to see a complete trip report. When you look at the track log on GMap you see that most of the distance is simply old logging roads. Some are partially overgrown, others in current use. But as far as I know, there are at least two sections that are an out and out bushwack. The track logs show a route through these areas, but as far as I know, there is no actual trail in these parts. The most you'd find is a bit of flagging.

When coming from the Ashlu side, the first big bushwack is on the west side of Pokosha Pass and down to Clowholm River. As far as I can tell, thiat is still a bushwack. And certainly not bikeable.

Another section that is a bushwack is the part going over Polytop Pass, from Rainy River Road to Sechelt Creek. See 49.631784,-123.537826 to 49.6472,-123.5444.

You can find lots of references to the complete "trail" on google and facebook. Here is a report from September 2016 where a pretty tough girl called Anwen Roberts attempted to go from Ashlu to Clowholm in 3 days. She did pretty good, but her description of the bush thrash once over Pokosha pass is exactly what I would expect. See Anwen Roberts Report.

If you really want to see firsthand the "beyond Pokosah Pass" section, I recommend the bike and hike trip we've done a couple of times up Sigurd Creek, around Sigurd and down Pokosha. See Sigurd-Pokosha Hike and Bike Loop - Again in 2015.

If you find any trip reports, email me. Or post any other...
