      SPRING 2019 TRAIL REPORT: After a long, cold and snowy winter, users of the Cumberland trails are requested to check the trail reports page for updates on the latest trail conditions before heading out.

      Nestled in the foothills of the Beaufort Range beneath the shadow of the Comox Glacier, the historic Village of Cumberland invites you to come experience our rich history and our bright future! The mix of mining and logging history has led to a vast network of old roads that are now intermixed with an ample amount of singletrack.

      Cumberland has become a new mecca for riders on Vancouver Island and beyond. With the most varied selection of trails, easy access and a fabulous trail crew, it should become a regular destination for mountain bikers throughout BC and western Canada.

      Be sure to visit a bike shop in Cumberland or the Comox Valley Visitor Centre to pickup one of the Cumberland trail maps!
