      The Gun Lake Riding Area has a beautiful crystal clear lake with private properties all around it. This area has volcanic ash and pumice so the trails are sensitive to erosion due to this, please ride do not slide.

      NOTE: All trails are multi-use, in both directions. Bikers give way to hikers and horses. Ride with respect for the trail, the wilderness and other users. Please do not post times to the leader board - race safely against friends in bike parks, not Provinical Parks.

      Bicycles and horses: Bikes give way to horseback riders for a number of reasons: A group of riders -often with packhorses - cannot always get off the trail for a mountain bike - please be patient and, f possible, go to the bottom side of a trail to give way - reason: horse(s) spooking uphill are easier to get under control than those bolting downhill). Remember animals DO NOT perceive what we do: In the horse’s mind, a mountain bike is reminiscent of a speedy silent predator coming at them. It is very important for cyclists to slow down, stop and SPEAK to the horse and rider. On hearing a human voice, most horses will calm quickly. Both horse and rider will appreciate your understanding. Mountain bikes can spook horses more than motor vehicles, because they are relatively quiet and can come upon them so suddenly, while motorized vehicles can be heard coming. Speed is seen to most animals as a threat or attack, this is why it is important to slow down and move over. Moving over (if possible) shows you are non-threatening.
