      This is an XC area with over 100km of trails, but not well suited to the absolute beginner rider, as most trails are quite difficult and continuously technical. Trails vary from dense forest to open rock bluff, unique to this area is the almost total absence of roads giving riders a feeling of “being out there”. Mostly signed the trails are marked for the preferred direction of travel, although most can be ridden in the reverse direction by a strong climber.
      Primary Trail Type: Cross-Country
      AKA: Snowden
      Lost Lake Parking Lot google parking directions
      Access Info:
      You'll find this forest west of Campbell River and north of Highway 28 near Loveland Bay Provincial Park. Lost Lake parking lot on the right of Loveland Bay Road (on the way to Loveland Bay Provincial Campground) is the primary parking area for the Snowden. An alternate start point is the Lost Frog parking lot on Devlin Rd off of Iron River Main. Note: Devlin Rd is a private road south of Lost Frog Parking lot and there is no access to Loveland Bay Main via Devlin Rd.
