Where is "Tailings Pond"?
I will take this one J1K

Keen

If you look about 8 to 10 posts down, there is another Tailing Pond post from last week. J1K posted a map.

From talking with a friend who has purchased a new XR650S,
myself a DRZ400S, he says its between Hwy 7 and Hope.

Sldye on the Honda and Scoot on the DRZ, looking forward to meeting the Gang out there !

just to clarify..

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.

if theres enough interest i'll throw up pie plates for directions at the bottom on nicklemine road.

J1k, gixxer76

The pie plates would be a cool touch.

Slyde has his bike and I order the DRZ two weeks ago, haven't phone yet wanting to take some parts off the Wee Strom, before trade in.

Actaully what sport bikes do you guys own.

I figured I could Tour on a SV1000S and Slyde has a ZX7R.

Can't wait !!

Couple of questions; first, I've got a CRF230F, would I be able to keep up? I ride it like a 2-cent whore otherwise though, if it came back needing repairs it wouldn't be the first time. Second, do you mind if a stranger such as myself comes along and can I tag along with somebody who knows where this is?

The bike hasn't been out in over a month since my cousin blew the motor on his CR125, I'd love to get out and ride dirt again.

Yeah, weather is looking good - what time do you guys normally arrive to go riding out at the ponds?

Early morning, or noonish, or afternoon??

usually around 1030 ish.leave coquitlam around 830-900.i stop at the chevron at the albion exit to get gas then go.

8-10 just with myself and a few friends.hopefully see some of you guys/ladies up there to.I will be at the top in the gate,and probly park down by the small track there so keep and eye on the kids.

if ya get to the gate at the top and its locked,walk up the road and i will come down and unlock it for ya all. platinum coloured minivan with trailer and a sea of hondas.
