We all have our favourite local trails, but it’s all too easy to get stuck in the rut of only riding our go-to loops. If you're prepared to step outside your comfort zone and go in search of new trails, some epic adventures are waiting for you. Don't expect to find these routes laid out for you, though, adventure is often about taking your own paths.
Join Pat Foster and Jeremy Norris for 24 hours in the Squamish backcountry, with Reuben Krabbe behind the lens.
