      The Rubberhead started off as a single mountain bike trail that has now expanded to include 18 trail sections. The area offers a variety of downhill mountain bike options for intermediate to advance riders. From steep and rooty to open and flowy, this system has something for everyone. The trail system is looked after by local trail stewards with the Shuswap Bike Club in collaboration with the Shuswap Trail Alliance. Planning of trails in the area is done in consultation with Canoe Forest Products who log the area. Its a strong partnership, so be sure to thank any foresters you might meet on the logging road. And always watch for active logging activities. Its a dynamic and productive harvest area, so things are always changing.

      The best approach is to shuttle (either by vehicle or on bike) from the 2.5km landing area of the 110 Forest Service Road (see access notes below). Here you will find parking and maps of the trail system. (Yes - we know the kiosk sign has a few hunting target holes through it :-) Trailheads range from 4 km to 11 km up the road. Riding up is an option and a great workout, but the road is steep.

      Access Info:
      Travel east of Salmon Arm on Hwy. 1 approx. 4km past the Canoe Forest Products mill. Turn right onto Forest Service Road (FSR) #110 just after a right corner on the highway and an info pullout on the left. Follow the 110 FSR up approx. 2.5km where the road widens and an old narrow skid road goes up to the left by the main trail sign. Park here.
