      The Rubberhead started off as a single mountain bike trail in the late 1980's. Now the area offers a variety of downhill mountain bike options for intermediate to advance riders. From steep and rooty to open and flowy. 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 operate in the area.

      The Main lower parking is at 2.5km on the 110 Forest Service Road (see access notes below). Here you will find parking and maps of the trail system. The Double D trail is the main climbing route from here. Down Hill trailheads range from 4 km to 11 km up the 110 FSR.

      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 Reverse Traverse 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

      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 to the parking lot. The upper Muffin Top parking is at 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 Ravine descent a little ways on your left.
