Welcome to an amazing tour of the best singletrack riding in the Cumberland/Comox Valley Area!

You'll start by heading through the centre of the historic Village of Cumberland before hitting the trails for an unbelievable ride. This is truly a rider's course. The diverse trails range from high speed, compact, mature trails to higher elevation rocky outcrops, dark and lush valley floor trails, and refined singletrack.

 Any chance you could allow this route to be downloadable for GPX, like the rest of the days. Cheers!
