      Gillard trails are a "Rec Site and Trials BC" trail network. Local trail society MTBco has a partnership agreement to manage this network. Since none of the trails meet RSTBC's trail standards, trail closure signs have been posted on each trail. No physical closures have been made. If you choose to ignore the sign, you are assuming all risks associated to riding a trail that does not meet RSTBC standards.

      The Gillard trails began it's development during the dawn of freeride mountain biking of the late 90's. All the trails are shuttle access and require an enduro/freeride/DH bike. The trails are focused on the intermediate to expert rider. You will find just about everything at Gillard; Fast single track, wooded features, gap jumps, skinnies, rock gardens, slabs, etc.

      Currently there is no climb trail at Gillard. If you wish to climb be prepared for a hot and dusty ride up the busy forest service road. There is a quad trail that can be ridden as an option. It takes longer and is steeper but has shade and no traffic.

      Have fun, and ride safe
