Ride to 7400′ Mara Mt Lookout

Ride Recap: Another big turnout for one of the most popular rides of the year. The group chose “All or Nothing Day” from the list of national days and what a day to go all the way to the top of the mountain.

39 riders in 34 machines enjoyed perfect weather and trail conditions.

Everyone showed excellent trail etiquette, sticking to the trail at all times.

Leaving Enderby at 9:30am Sunday July 26

It’s time to get high again, all the way to 7400′ at the Mara Mountain Lookout.

Leaving the Enderby and District Chamber of Commerce parking lot at 702 Railway Street in Enderby at 9:30am, from there we head east out to the staging area on Kingfisher FSR.

The convoy will leave the Tim Horton’s on 58th Avenue (by Walmart) at 8:45am en route to Enderby.

A few critically important things to know for this ride:

  1. COVID-19 is still a thing so keep your distance at all times and stay home if you’re not well.
  2. Stay on the trail at all times, there is ZERO tolerance for riding off trail in the alpine (or any time for that matter).
  3. Come prepared for all weather conditions, at this elevation things can change quickly.
  4. Try our free trial membership offer – come ride with the club for free in July.

This ride is average difficulty and can be accomplished by intermediate level riders. There is one advanced level obstacle, a small rock ledge that can be difficult if you hit it incorrectly. We will assist anyone not comfortable with riding this obstacle themselves to ensure everyone gets up safely.

We won’t have a lunch campfire so bring a sandwich or other item you can eat cold. The views are unmatched so bring your camera, check out photos from past trips to the lookout.

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.

    1. Check out last year’s photos to see if you recall having been there before – https://vernonatvclub.ca/mara-lake-lookout-ride/

      Honestly you need to lose some weight from your storage box to make your quad more stable. This ride is less than 60km so you won’t need much of what you bring on rides.

      There are steep sections but nothing that is beyond intermediate level difficulty and can be ridden safely by getting your weight forward on the machine. The one spot on the trail with the rock step is doable if you get your weight forward, choose the right line and carry some momentum. We will have folks helping at this part of the trail.
