Burns Lake

Mountain Biking in Burns Lake, BC, Canada

Where dirt is perfectly progressive.

Ten minutes from downtown Burns Lake’s shopping, restaurants and hotels, Boer Mountain and the Burns Lake Bike Park launch miles of classic singletrack and some of the best downhill trails you’ll find anywhere. A progressive beginner-to-advanced trails network, designed by world-renowned experts including the IMBA trail crew, Gravity Logic and Jay Hoots, as well as a local trail crew, offers a rider-focussed sequence of cross-country, freeride and downhill trails, as well as a skills park, jump park and Rider Cross track.

Nowhere else is riding this family friendly, and nowhere else offers such a vast opportunity for other outdoor recreation activities. We not only have biking trails…we also have hiking trails that offer stunning views of wildlife, mountains and waterfalls. With over 3000 miles of lakeshore, freshwater fishing prospects are endless – or take part in one of many local festivals that occur throughout the year.

Explore the unique shops of downtown Burns Lake or stop in at one the local restaurants for a bite to eat. If you’re staying for more than a day, your accommodation options are endless. Choose from hotels, lodges, RV campgrounds or one of many free recreation sites for rustic camping – Kager Lake Recreation site is conveniently located partway up Boer Mountain, surrounded by bike trails.

The Burns Lake trifecta: natural beauty, friendly locals, incredible riding. Chock-full of flowy goodness.

Nurturing Pride

Nurturing Pride

I’m following a 16-year old ripper off a tabletop on When Pigs Fly.  A grandmother is on my tail and an 8-year old surprisingly close behind. In our group of 15 riders exploring Burns Lake’s 100 kilometre trail network, there’s everyone from middle-aged teachers to bike bums, expert to intermediates, in jogging pants and on triple crown downhill rigs. I’ve never ridden with a more diverse crew, especially not on assignment.
