Once again this leg starts with a long steep downhill winding into the Klehini Valley. You may see the mountains and hanging glaciers on the far side of the Valley on the right. The route is mainly downhill passing Canadian Customs at Pleasant Camp and US Customs shortly after.
Everyone, riders included (and with their ID), must stop to clear US Customs. This section of the road was upgraded in 2001 and provides a very gradual downhill until Big Boulder Creek, along the left side of the Klehini Valley.
