      This region is Unsanctioned, Ride at your own Risk!

      This is a new riding area consisting of beginner to intermediate trails that wind along a ridge above the Oyster River midway between Campbell River and Courteney.
      Primary Trail Type: Cross-Country
      Access Info:
      Park at the Yellow Gate at the end of Glenmore Rd. Ride in and take the first right on the gravel road and climb a moderately steep hill. As you crest the hill watch turn left onto a double track trail and watch for the trail again on the left. If the gate is open at the bottom of the hill, please avoid the hill due to large trucks coming down. Hike a bike up Half Decent Proposal or ride in on Rum Runner.
