      Bear Mountain is an active tree farm, operated by the City of Mission. It is one of the only tree farm licences in the province granted to a municipality. This unique designation allows the city to protect the forest from development and allows recreational access to the mountain. The FVMBA has a strong relationship with the Mission Forestry department and all trail work (both maintenance and new construction) is subject to approval by the City of Mission as well as Recreational Sites and Trails BC.

      Clear cuts are part of healthy forestry and recreational management. The city values the benefits of trails and works with the FVMBA to restore trails affected by logging. We enjoy our forests and trails as an evolving environment through natural environmental impact and controlled impact from logging.

      Bear Mountain offers a variety of flow and technical trails. There is no shuttle access on this mountain.
      Access is from Dewdney Trunk Road at the Mill Pond, Saunders parking lot off Richards, or Doyle Street.

      These are a hand-built trails for light recreational use. Biking or hiking only. No horses or motorized vehicles are allowed on the single-track trails of Bear Mountain.

      From Mill Pond, use Big Trouble in Little Chainring to climb up to Super Bear.

      From Saunders, climb up the access road to the top of Wasp. Optional climbing trails include /Cherry Tomato, Corduroy & /Bomba, Backdoor.

      From Doyle, get your steam on and climb up Cranks, /Bomba, and Backdoor.
