Experience this 29.1-km out-and-back trail close to Fraser Valley E, British Columbia. Birding, off-road driving, and hiking are all popular activities on this trail. The trailhead for Mount Cheam can be reached from the south via this forest service road. Take the Foley Creek FSR from Chilliwack Lake Road, then turn left at the T onto the Chipmunk Creek FSR. The majority of the way through the valley will be taken by this road; after that, Mount Cheam FSR will take you the rest of the way to the trailhead. Due to the extremely rough roads, a high-clearance 4x4 vehicle is strongly recommended.

Whipsaw Trail

Try this point-to-point trail near Princeton that is 103.0 km long. In Whissaw Creek in the Similkameen region, this route is a well-known off-road vehicle (OHV) trail for multi-terrain 4WD vehicles. Off of this main trail, you can explore ponds, cabins, and side trails. It has a feeling of isolation and some interesting challenges along the way. If you want to break up this trip into several days, there are some options for camping in the backcountry.

Kettle Valley Trail

This 39.6-kilometer point-to-point trail is close to Penticton. The famous Kettle Valley Railway, which is now the Rail Trail, has the best and longest section here. Because this is a multi-use trail with interpretive signage and artifacts, the amount of time required to complete this route will vary depending on the type of activity and the amount of time spent enjoying them. Miles were used to measure distances on old railroads like all others, and mile signs are still posted to show where to stop. The Naramata Road should be taken from Main Street. Stay on this road until you see the Chute Lake sign. To reach Chute Lake, stay on the rail trail.

Clear Creek Hot Springs

Try this 53.9-kilometer trail near Kent. Due to the numerous fallen trees and washed-out roads after heavy rains, the road to the Hot Spring can be challenging. This well-maintained path is suitable for two-wheeled ATVs, but the final 13 kilometers up   to the springs require a four-wheel drive vehicle. There are a few creek crossings that aren't very deep and passable by ATV.

Whistler OHV Trails

Explore the 680.8-kilometer Whistler loop trail. Beginning in Whistler, ascend to the Lilloet Lake Front Range and on to the Harrison West Front Range. After that, travel up the Harrison East Freeway to the town of Harrison Hot Springs. Continue on to the Shovel Creek and Kookipi Fronts, respectively. Turn left at Nahatlatch Fsr. Along the left side of the road, you can camp in a number of different spots. At 40 kilometers, turn left toward Grizzly Falls as you continue up the Nahatlatch. Turn left in the direction of the Rio Rafting entrance as you descend again. A cardboard sign for Okeefe will be there. Follow the road all the way to the Lytton Ferry by following the hydro lines. Cross here if you want to hit the pavement. If not, continue north on Spencer's Road all the way to Texas Creek before entering Lilloet. Return the Duffy Lake Street to Whistler.

The Aspen Trail Head Campground and the Burke Trail Campground both offer ATV-friendly camping, and there are numerous one-way trails, loop trails, and hundreds of logging roads to explore. Although there are trail fees and strict regulations, the riding is well worth it. There are numerous options for family-friendly and beginner-friendly riding here, and more experienced riders can also explore and discover challenging terrain.

Along the Coal Creek Road, which runs east of this popular ski town, you can find approximately 90 kilometers (56 miles) of trails as well as numerous kilometers of spur roads and logging roads to explore. The trail that runs along Fernie Ridge, the steep path that climbs Morissey Ridge, and the trail that leads to the Notch, a panoramic viewpoint on Flathead Ridge, are all popular rides. The Kootenay Rockies, with their dense forests, towering mountains, and sparkling lakes and streams, are generally accessible from any direction.

Even though Revelstoke is well-known for its winter recreation opportunities, ATV enthusiasts should visit during the spring, summer and fall seasons. A vast network of trails that take you deep into the surrounding mountains is maintained in collaboration with the Revelstoke ATV Club, the government of British Columbia, and BC Hydro.
