      Bear Mountain is an active tree farm Read posted signage as to daily activities.

      Bear Mountain is an active tree farm, operated by the District 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 us access to the mountain for trail development. Mission Forestry department has a strong relationship with the FVMBA.

      Clearcuts are part of our civilization and accepted. The city considers the trails important, restoring 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, Sauders 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 allowed on the single-track trails on Bear Mountain.

      From Mill Pond, use Big Trouble in Little Chainring to climb up to the newly renovated 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.
