Write Up:
The first 4.7km was biked up some steep sections of rocky road and leveled out through the forest. The hike to Ribbon Falls was just over 5km along a dirt path above the Ribbon Creek with beautiful smaller waterfalls and crystal clear pools. The additional 2km up to Ribbon Lake was a steady climb up scree slopes, boulder fields and a short scramble climbing up metal ladder steps and cables (Via Ferrata Style) up a rock cliff. We stopped for lunch around the fire pit at the backcountry campground before heading back to the bikes. The ride down was fast and required not much effort which was welcome after such a hard day hiking. Total km was 24 completed in 4 hours and 45 minutes.
