Great ride Allen! A nice day winding the trails west of Pinaus Lake included visits to Woods, Nugget and Jimmy Lakes.
NOTE: the last photo in the gallery is a puddle on a road, it is not a stream!
10:00am Start Sunday June 7
Meet at Pinaus Lake Road (click here for directions and map) and be ready to ride at 10:00am Sunday June 7.
A convoy will be leaving the Tim Horton’s by Walmart Vernon on 58th Avenue at 8:45am if you want to tag along.
Remember we need to observe physical distancing so keep a safe distance from all other riders at all times from first arriving and throughout the day.
There’s a bunch of parking along Pinaus Lake Road with a few spots immediately after leaving the highway and much more where the road widens at 1km.
Plan on being out riding until approximately 4:00pm. We’ll stop for lunch but can’t guarantee we’ll have a campfire so pack a lunch, your camera, GPS and all safety and weather gear for the day.
Ride objectives include Woods Lake, Nugget Lake and others. Shouldn’t be dusty as the forecast is calling for a 60% chance of rain. For those new to the Vernon ATV Club, we ride rain or shine so you never need to worry if we’ll cancel a ride.
Club rides typically do 50-60kmh on Forest Service Roads (FSR) and slower on trails. Ride difficulty will range from easy riding on FSR to medium difficulty obstacles on trails. We work as a team on rides, if you riders encounter something above their ability we either help them through or find a way around.
Rides 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.
The Vernon ATV Club promotes responsible all terrain vehicle use. Riders must must carry their driver’s license, vehicle registration, and proof of $200,000 liability insurance for riding on forest service roads. Quad riders must wear a helmet, side x side riders aren’t required by law to wear helmets but we recommend they do.
