Finding Blue Mountain is pretty straightforward:
- Turn north onto 256 St from Dewdney Trunk Road
- Follow the road for 5 km (that’s 3 miles for our American friends) until you reach the yellow gate
Alternatively, you can enter the following address into your GPS or your smart phone map application to find the parking lot:
Parking is on the street
NOTE: The gate is opened for major events, and additional parking is made available opposite the Trials Trail kiosk.
When you’re ready to ride, head north past the yellow gate for about one (1) kilometer (0.6 miles) until you see the kiosk on your right hand side. This is the entrance to ‘Trials Trail’, the gateway to the Blue Mountain trail system.
STOP! Be sure to read the notices (if any) posted on the kiosk board.
There may be trail closures, active logging, or other circumstances that could ruin your day. When you reach the top of Trials Trail continue south (turn right) to access more trails. Do not turn left, as doing so will only spit you back out onto the fire service road. You didn’t drive all this way to ride dirt roads, did you?
Respect the mountain
Obey marked trail closures, any directional signs you come across (there are very few), and do NOT stray off the trails. If you come to an obstacle you cannot cross, simply turn around. Do not braid new paths around obstacles.
Pack it in, pack it out
We enjoy picking up your garbage as much as you enjoy picking up ours. When you’re done riding and back at your truck, have a look around before you drive away. Do not leave any of your garbage behind.
