National Philanthropy Day Ride

Ride Recap: A spectacular day on the trails of the west side of Mt Ida. Starting from the Silver Creek Community Park due to how treacherous the Deep Creek access would be with the amount of snow.

A big group, 28 riders in 24 machines clambered the hillside to enjoy the panoramic view of the Salmon River valley and Fly Hills and the winding trails.

Allen led the group up to the viewpoint then past Lost Lake then along some fun deactivated trails before heading back down through the slippery zone on the way back to staging.

We’re challenging everyone to give us much as they can when they attend this ride, whether it’s food or cash for the food bank or a gift for Santa’s Anonymous.

COVID-19 is our new reality so if you’re not feeling well don’t attend. If you do attend you must maintain social distancing throughout the day.

Ride safety meeting starts at 10:00am at Silver Creek Community Park off Salmon River Road. Join the convoy leaving the Tim Horton’s on 58th Avenue (across from WalMart) at 9:00am sharp!

The ride will feature a variety of trails from forest service roads to technical trails with difficulty reaching upper intermediate for short sections. The club will have spotters at difficult sections or get your machine around or through. The trails will accommodate quads and side x sides up to approximately 68″ wide.

Bring a lunch, we will try to have a campfire to warm up by at lunch but don’t plan on being able to cook lunch over the fire. Outhouse options are limited at Mt Ida so be prepared for bush business.

Vernon ATV Club rides go rain, snow, sleet and even sun. If you’re up for a ride someone will be there to join you!

Vernon ATV Club and events are open to everyone, we encourage new riders to come out for a couple of rides to meet club members, find new trails and get a sense of the club before joining.
