If first down on the day, its possible you will disturb resting herds of deer or elk, which may bound off through the river or forest. Bear and cougar may also be in the area.
There is a large connecting network of more advanced mountain bike (MB) trails, some extreme. However, the saved track is wide, easy, mostly light gravel or packed dirt, with a few very-short coarser gravel sections, and only one short caution segment below the starting parking lot (see picture). There are no steep uphill sections provided you come back on the same route. Best with a mountain bike, however any geared bike with sturdy tires should make it.
The saved track finishes with a short vehicle loop around the town of Williams Lake, including the "Barking Spider Mountain Bike" shop where a good quality MB was available for day rental. The ending waypoint is at a small, authentic Italian Bistro.
