Welcome to the... F.V.D.R.A.
 

 
 
NOTICE:  Nickelmine FSR Now Open
      Please see map for construction closure areas      

The Nickelmine (Stulkawhits) forest service road is now open but there is still active construction and heavy equipment operation in the south section of the valley near the old camp due to reclamation work on the Tailings Pond.  Please be respectful of posted closure areas.

There is currently gravel extraction taking place at the 3km mark of the forest service road.   GB5 on the map.  For everyones safety please maintain a speed of 20k for all motorized vehicles through this area up to the yellow gate.  Once at the yellow gate Do Not Turn Left, you will run into active construction.  The main forest service road continues onto the fork on the right.

The riding trails are open in the north section of the valley but in need of maintenance due to the past years closure due to an unfortunate logging accident.  For safety reasons and due to fire risks please avoid any overgrown trails and ride with a spark arrester. 

Due to active construction near the old tailings pond camp and blasting taking place in the south section of the valley all trails in this area are closed.  Please avoid the area shown on this map - click here - and respect closure signage.  Construction work is expected to be completed by November 2018 and the closure will be reassessed at that time.

Be aware that throughout 2018 there will logging trucks using the forest service road to work on cut blocks located west of the main valley.  Drive with caution and if you have a radio monitor RR - 22 or VHF 151.30 Mhz simplex.

COMMUNITY
 
 
Our Facebook group always has something going on and is a great place to hook up with other riders or hear about current events.  
We had added a Live Facebook Stream to this site to keep non FB users updated but due to recent changes made by Facebook it is no longer available.   
 
 
 RIDE SAFE 
We are a family club so there are kids and pets in our camp area. Always ride slowly in the camp area.
 
Please keep our riding and camp areas clean. Take out what you take in, put out camp fires and don't leave food scraps lying around. A fed bear is a dead bear.
Check out the bottom of our Riding Areas page for safety tips on hand signals, group riding, leap frog and more.....
