When you reach the top of the diversion dam you will be directed to the left into the BC Hydro trails where you follow the black arrows and flagging tape all the way to the Fish and Game boat launch. This last part consists of forest trails and a short section (15 minutes) of single track.

The very last part before you hit the fish and game area you will have to cross the comox logging road into the fish and game club.

Riders are required to wear ASTM, ANSI or SNELL approved helmets, ride a mountain bike only and obey the rules of the road. The route will be flagged and is on logging roads and trails. Bike numbers (available at bike check in) must be affixed to MTB.
