Vernon or Kamloops riders

Recommended Posts

I just moved out to the Okanagan and it seems like epic riding around here! Anyone wanna go riding? or can you point me to some decent trails?

I am in Falkland, between Vernon and Kamloops.

Your closest spot would be Mt Ida. Take the Salmon river Rd to the Silver Crk fire hall on the way to Salmon Arm. Pit's there or 8km up the FSR.

There's also Lavington area just outside Vernon up the Noble Caynon Rd.

Careful out there now kids, its super hot and dry, as if you haven't noticed. Definitely don't want to be riding through tall grass right now.

You're kidding right?

I was hoping you were.

I know it's mighty dry out there and no one wants to start a fire.

Just don't know what your post has to do with the OP's question.

It has to do with the area and me not wanting to start a thread about the obvious, and that's how tinder dry it is.

the original post was back in June!

But, yes i think everyone is aware of the fire rating, on the other hand i did catch some idoits with a fire, the day of the ban last friday,and i do belive forestry did catch up with them.

Lots of good trails near Falkland. You need to head up into the Fly Hills and just start looking around.

There was a private track just West of Summerland that closed down several years ago. The only track close to you is Bear Creek.
