A popular area for ATV/UTVs, dirt bikes and 4x4s, a combination of forest service roads, powerline roads, old logging roads and trails. Becker Lake is west of Noble Canyon, Bardolph Lake is east of Noble Canyon.
Lakes: Becker and Bardolph
Directions: 17kms east of Vernon in Lavington, turn north off of Highway 6 onto Noble Canyon Road
Parking and Unloading: Due to the new residents on the road we must unload past the cattleguard approximately 400m down the road. Unload at the cattleguard then park along the road back toward the highway. Please don’t park at the cattleguard or in the turn around area by the cattleguard as this makes it near impossible to get a trailer turned around. There are additional parking areas at 1km and 2km.
