      The network is located beside the Gavin Lake Education Center. This site is also the start of the new trail around the lake, which includes 800m of low mobility boardwalk and a bridge over the inlet creek. Bring your Mountain Bike, the trails across the road have been expanded to include some single track bike trails. The site also has low mobility trail and outhouse.
      Trails follow the existing ski trail system and are diverted to parralel single track whenever there is a downhill section. System could be described as intermediate due to some steep uphill sections. There are several small jumps that riders can get air on, but can also roll over if preferred.There are a few sections of "skinnies" and bridges that are not too high off the ground. Parking is available in the Gavin Lake Camp Parking Lot and trailhead is at the start of the deactivated "Bootjack Rd" which you will pass on the way to camp.

The Gavin Lake Road is on the right and is marked by the Gavin Lake Forest Education Centre and UBC/Alex Fraser Research Forest signs.
