      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.

      Connect to the Larch Hills and the Larch Hills Traverse: The Rubberhead Trail System connects to the Larch Hills trail system and the Larch Hills Traverse. They can be linked into a variety of epic cross-country rides linking over to the South Canoe Trails, as well as the Larch Hills Traverse to Sicamous. Or try the "Bostock Variation" of the Larch Hills Traverse, which is to start in Sicamous and ride the LHT east to west, but ending with a flowy desent through the Rubberhead Trails back to Salmon Arm. Lots of opportunity to get creative

      AND IN THE WINTER: the Rubberhead Trails create a fun series of trails to explore on snowshoes. Blazing helps to mark the routes covered in snow.

      Warnings: Use at own risk. Some sections of trail are steep, difficult, and poorly maintained with limited signage. These trails are designed as freeride downhill mountain bike trails. Hikers should use extreme caution. Watch for forestry vehicles and equipment.

      Muffin Top Parking google parking directions
      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. To continue to the various trailheads, shuttle or pedal the 110 FSR staying on the main road (riding the new uphill trail for the first portion to the first road switchback). Trail posts mark various sections to 8.2km where you turn right, up the steep hill, and follow the road to 10.5km. Look for the trail post on the left at an obvious landing and parking area. This is the uppermost Muffin Top trailhead. Look for the trail through the top of the cut block.

      Or alternately - at the 8.2 km junction, stay to the left and watch for the start of the Supermans descent a little ways on your left.
