Grizzly Lake Long Weekend Camping and Rides

Friday-Monday May 17-20

Weekend Recap: A busy long weekend at area recreation sites. We thought heading up Thursday after work we would get our pick of camp sites but lots of folks were already out enjoying the backcountry.

It rained Saturday which meant no dust for the group ride that headed south and east from Grizzly Lake, going by Goat Mountain Lake before descending to Harris Creek then returning up Nicklen FSR by Aberdeen and Haddo Lakes for a 102km ride.

The sun prevailed Sunday as the ride took the group west along Wollaston then over to Brunette and south to Postill Lake for some muddy and rocky technical trails before heading back toward Beaver Lake then home past the Flyfish lakes for a 90km ride. Each evening tall tales and funny stories were exchanged around the campfire before turning in to get ready to do it all again the next day.

Thanks to Abe, Allen and Clint for weaving together their respective trail knowledge to make for two days of fun rides.

Join the club at the Grizzly Lake Recreation Site for a long weekend full of camping, rides and stories around the campfire. The Grizzly Lake camp sites are located at 23km on the Aberdeen Forest Service Road accessed via Learmouth Road in Lavington.

If you’re camping get in touch so we know to save a space for you. We plan on staying at the Canal Campground which is the third road you encounter at the rec site when coming from Lavington.

If you’re coming for rides they will be heading out at 10:00am both Saturday and Sunday. Since we’re starting from Grizzly Lake we’ll be able to explore areas further from our usual King Eddy Road starting spot. Send an email by 5:00pm Friday May 17 if you’re coming for rides so we know to look out for you.
