Heading out from the bottom of Pinaus Lake Road at 10:30am to explore the mountains around Pinaus Lake and the west side of Okanagan Lake.
Meet at the bottom of the main Pinaus Lake Road, not the shortcut by the meat packing plant (also known as Pinaus Lake Road) – Google Directions
We would normally start at Irish Creek Road for this ride but with early season snow conditions and the road washout we encountered last year we’re taking a different approach to get to the Pinaus Lake area.
Come prepared for spring riding conditions which can include rain and snow. Pack a lunch, we typically have a campfire to warm up and cook a hot dog or two during our lunch break.
Ride Difficulty: Beginner to Intermediate
Much of the ride will be on FSR (Forest Service Road), we will attempt to find as much trail as possible to get off the FSR. If a difficult section of trail is encountered the group will either ride around or assist riders to get through the difficult spots.
Bathroom Facilities: there are forestry recreation sites in the area with outhouses. Please advise the ride leader if you want to stop at the outhouse so they can make it part of the ride route. Remember to bring your own toilet paper as it may not be in the outhouse.
Rides 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.
