9:00am Sunday July 21 Vernon / 9:30am Enderby / 10:00am at Kingfisher FSR
A ride to the top of the world, Mara Mountain Lookout is 7,382 ft (2,250 m) elevation and was chosen as a lookout site due to the commanding view in all directions. It’s national ice cream day so let us know if you’re coming so we can have an ice cream treat for you.
MUST READ: The number 1 rule when riding in the alpine is stay on the trails, REPEAT – STAY ON THE TRAILS! If you ride off the trail you will be reported to the authorities by others in the ride, it’s that important we stay on the trails.
Back to the fun stuff, it’s a fairly short ride (about 60kms) and it’s pretty rough and rocky in spots but the lake below the lookout and the views from the lookout are well worth it.
Bring your lunch, camera, GPS, bug spray and clothing for all conditions. Hopefully it’s a nice sunny day so we can hang out at the lookout for lunch then laze around enjoying the view. Weather changes fast at elevation and even in the summer it could rain or snow at the lookout.
If you’re coming from Vernon we’ll be leaving the Tim Horton’s parking lot on 58th Avenue at 9:00am then stopping at the Enderby Chamber of Commerce office at 9:30 then on to Kingfisher Forest Service Road at 10:00am and ready to ride by 10:30am.
