Section 3

Joyce Access Road to Joyce Piedmont Road (MP 12 to MP 20). There are several possibilities for loop and short trips on this section. Bicyclists can combine the Joyce Access Road with the trail between MP 12.5 and MP 16 for a loop trip.
One can also park a car on the Joyce Access Road near MP 16, bike the trail to the Joyce Piedmont Road at MP 20, then use the road to return to Joyce and the Joyce Access Road near Crescent High School. This section has both deep forest and recent clearcuts with great views to the northwest to Vancouver Island, with a picnic table for a scenic stop. The dramatic descent into Whiskey Creek at MP 18 is not to be missed.
