North Vancouver Island

A hidden gem exists in the trails near Campbell River. Hundreds of kilometers of singletrack thread through the site of logging 50 or more years ago. Further away, small groups of dedicated builders have cut trails through the rainforests of Northern Vancouver Island.

Campbell River

Campbell River has a long standing network of trails located in the Snowden Demonstration Forest which has recently enjoyed some serious maintenance due to funds from the Western Economic Diversification fund. Many new bridges, brushed out trails, new switchbacks and more traverse the nearly 100km’s of singletrack found in the forest.

Check with your local bike shops for more info along with updates on the river city cycling club websites.
