Parker is a singletrack XC trail constructed for family enjoyment. The trail is named after Parker William Thompson who’s birth coincided with the commencement of trail construction. The trail was named after Parker in appreciation of the enthusiasm and energy mountain bike members (including his proud parents Lisa and Kevin shown above holding Parker) have brought to China Ridge. Parker is the first in a series of trails China Ridge plans to build marking a new era for China Ridge; one of providing quality mountain bike adventures.

Access Info

Parker connects the China Ridge Cabin to the Reuben Jones warming shelter where riders will find the start of the Rail Trail. In 2010 the singletrack at China Ridge will be extended to the Longhouse. This will complete a singletrack route which links the China Ridge trailhead to the Cabin (located at the far end of the trail system) and provides a spur down to the beautiful White Sands beach situated on the Tulameen River and the KVR.
