    All the demos ; ) and my CRF450R
    McNutt is the best that I have ridden here in the Lower Mainland. I hear Vedder near Chilliwack is awesome as well but haven't made it out there yet. Sqaumish is pretty boring. Too many logging roads, not enough single track. I am from Kamloops , so I was pretty spoiled growing up. It is hard to compare anything around here with the Loops, God I miss it there.
    Sometimes you just gotta give'er !

    Bachelor Heights is no doubt awesome but it's more like Green Stone mountain, big runs and massive hills and I love that feeling of hitting those things tapped out in fith all the way up as you go down trough the gear box in order to make it. Before I had a wife and kids I spent alot of time in that neck of the woods (some times up to 3 days) and took some serious soil samples to remember it (on a CR500 no less) but nowdays, the only way for me to do it is to leave on a friday and spend the one night, ride all day saturday until my arms fall off and then come home to mamma bear or else... well you know the deal !!! Today for instance I got to ride Vetter Mountain. Boy let me tell you, that place is super chalenging, goat trails city. What I love the most there is how you can zip into a trail, spend an hour in the thick and then, out of the blue, there's the road again. It would be very hard for one to get lost in there but I guess it could happen. My buddy Shane is having a blast on his new 450 X and his electric start really comes in handy let me tell you, but in there, the bike of choice I would have to think would be a 250 four stroke. Well, now that motard season is over, expect to ear more dirt stories... until then, peace out

    kamloops has some of the best riding you will ever find. we have greenstone mtn, barnhartvale, batchelor heights, and a mx track. riding here ranges from never riden a bike to pro level trails that make me cry. - as for directions...i could try to tell you, but its alot easier to show you. next time anyone is down here looking for a ride.. let me know and we will go out and have a blast getting lost.

    but we really do have it all... you want mud, we got it. you want impossible hill climbs, we got it. tight trails - yup got that too....thined out trails that you can hit 4th pinned - the best ones to ride - we got it....

    you get the point

    If anybody wants to part with some of their local spots it would be great if you could pm me if you didn't want to post it up here. I'm on the look out for nearby lower mainland spots to hit up that don't require hours of drive time to get to.. the only two spots I have right now are illegal...LOL I guess all spots in N.Van are illegal anyways.. I only know of Ealge mtn right now, after that it's a drive out to chilliwack, and or hope.

    Not really good for anything, but they still bring a smile to your face when you push them down a flight of stairs.

    Agreed on this area as being good, as we have some trials events there, usually the May long weekend. More technical stuff would always be nice.

    As with most overnight deals though, it would be great if riders could cool it through the campsite areas, and wait until the hills and trails to pin it...! Someone's young one is going to get run over at a high rate of speed in the campsite.

    What area some good places to go? Why are they good? Is there anything particular someone should know before riding there? How do you get there? (directions) How long is the drive to get there? How long is the ride? etc, etc...

    I know some people are secretive about their favourite spots...which is understandable. But for the rest of you, I urge you to post up any knowledge you would be willing to share.

    I'm hoping to sticky this thread at the top so we can have a good centralized source for riding information. It was a real headache trying to look through past posts for this stuff.

    Thanks guys, it's appreciated.

    Hey, I am interested in heading up to Eagle Mountain, but am not sure what road to take to get there or where to park. I know it is somewhere up past Westwood. Any help would be great.

    Hello Mate

    I don't know if this thread is still being viewed much but I've just got back into the Dual-Sport thing. I'm not sure if you're looking for pure dirt bike stuff or whether you're riding there on something like a BMW or KLR, etc.

    I'm running a BMW Dakar and so far I've been all over the place around Squamish. I reckon it's great on a fairly heavy bike but maybe a bit tame for a CR or RM, etc. You see shed loads of wildlife so beware of the bears. There is bear crap all over the place at the far ends of the trails and I nearly ran into what must have been Yogi's dad on Canada day, nearly necessitating an emergency underwear change.

    Anyway, there's a great free map on the web. You can move it around, zoom into to areas, stick a legend on the side and print the maps off in pdf format along with coordinates, just in case you use GPS.

    Here's the link - http://www.tsa.gov.bc.ca/sites_trail...active_map.htm

    Copy it into your browser and have a mess around with it until you find what you need.

    Happy hunting and if anyone wants a bit of company on the trails up there, drop me a pm.

    If you go on your own, take a shed load of tools, first aid kit and plenty of water / food. If you get stuck it's a hell of a long way back to civilisation, 49 miles (not km) from the end of Squamish Valley Logging Road!
    On Kingsway...., you are invisible!
