Hope Nickel Mine
If you are a motorcycle or ATV enthusiast, then Hope’s BC Nickel Mine area is a must-do. This area, which has been enjoyed by riders for a few decades, is made up of decommissioned forestry service roads, hydro access roads and abandoned mining roads. This concentration of roads and forested trails has been appropriately tagged as the best family orientated, off road riding area in BC. There are also approximately 100km of long loops and trails through the forested mountainsides and valleys with key spots to rest and enjoy the fantastic scenery of British Columbia.
Hope Nickel Mine riding area is suitable for riders at all levels. Designated family riding areas, novice learning areas and experienced rider trails ensure everyone enjoys the area safely. The camp ground and off-loading area is provided by the FVDRA and is available to members only.FVDRA Website
4×4 and ATV Offroading
The Hope BC area’s history as a resource based community means there are many logging and mining access forestry roads. These excellent exploring routes are ideal for ATV and 4×4 vehicles. Popular areas are Emory Creek, Mount Hope, Jones Lake, Skagit Valley and Sunshine Valley.
Be mindful that this mode of exploration requires the most infrastructure of all outdoor recreation and leaves the largest footprint in Hope area mountains and forests. Let’s all work together to enjoy ourselves responsibly and keep the land and water clean for years to come. The Hope area’s many great rides are ready for you!
