TRAIL HUNTER GULF ISLANDS

In the straight of Georgia, nestled between Vancouver Island and British Columbia, you'll find the Gulf Islands. Comprised of hundreds of islands, all varying in size and topography, the Gulf Islands play host to an awesome network of trails, each only accessible by boat. And in this episode of Trail Hunter, Matt Hunter puts his sea legs to the test, has some incredible rides, and gains a newfound appreciation for wind. We'd say that the trails were well worth the adventure of getting there.

A living legend, this native son of Kamloops, British Columbia has been at the forefront of mountain biking for over a decade. From Seasons to his long-running series, Trail Hunter, Matt has been integral in paving the way for documenting mountain biking in its purest form: Fun, friends, and far off lands.

"I'd never had a chance to try sailing before, and when we got invited to do this trip through BC's Gulf Islands, we just knew we had to bring our bikes…there's actually no other way to get to these trails than by boat."

"I usually just hate the wind, but this has really opened my eyes to what it can do for you. And right now, the wind is blowing us from one trail to the next."
