directions.gonna drag my dad and mom out as well.get him a crf150.trying to also scoupe a demo 07 crf150R too.we'll see.

also a vague map of some of the trails.only some.


Drive north through Hope up into the Fraser Canyon for approximately 10min. The access to the tailings pond is at B.C. Nickelmine Road. You will cross a small bridge over Texas Creek and Nickelmine Road will be on your left. This paved windy road is steep and then turns to gravel. You will come to a fork in the road. Left is how you get to the gate that can only be opened by a Fraser Valley Off-Road Member. If you are just there for the day you can keep left and park 100 meters up the road.

......OR....IF you want to camp there are other places to do so. No one owns the mountain so feel free to camp as long as you like. You just can't camp in "their special area". Hope is great. Go and enjoy.

And don't forget to give back. The usual pack out what you pack in applies but also if you see any other mess pitch in a few minutes to help clean up.

I'll be breaking in my new CRF450R with Jumby.

The XR was leaving some big craters on the Pemberton track last time out. It will be retired to motard status again soon.

Have fun. Watch out for the Toy box's parked in the middle of the track.

Back from Hope in one piece. Did some pretty hard stuff today: up and down Bear shit, 21 days, all the usual inside stuff like rubber ducky, Plumbers trails, Momma's Swamp, Stump ranch and finished the day with a trip up and back down Orgasm (Moss Hill???). What a day! We even took a little time to clear some over growth. I saw Johnny and Jen but couldn't stop to chat!! I need a brewski!

definatly good riding today,did alot of trail that i have never done which is always good.we did the 24 a course backwards as well which was interesting.
finally did that widowmaker hill(up on the upper tailings pond )that goes straight up the mountain,it connects back up with bear shit and ya come back down.good stuff.
Between a few of us on here we should do a day up there iam sure we could ride non stop all day.could have a girls/newbie ride as well.

mark and i kept seeing ya guys here and there in the bush,we'll get together up there soon.be great.was nice having my Dad and mom come out to and get my dad on the 150 as well as my 450.

the 07 150R is a touchy subject at the shop so many people wanna piece of it :) ,there in few numbers but i can always ask,if we have the crf150 non race version that may be possible if the demo aint sold.

my dad rode it last weekend.loves it.
