Make it Yours…for mountain biking
Vernon is emerging as a new mountain biking destination. Located in the North Okanagan, Vernon shares the enviable lifestyle of other Okanagan communities - beaches and peaches - but has the added benefit of having great hillsides and mountains right next to the city. Nearby Silver Star, Kalamalka and Ellison Provincial Parks – all have mountain biking trails. The ones in Kalamalka and Ellison are developed and maintained by the North Okanagan Cycling Society (www.okcycling.com). These trails have been created over the past two years. The beauty of some of these trails is that you can jump in the lake after a great ride!
Silver Star Resort (www.skisilverstar.com) is located just 25 minutes from downtown Vernon and has lift accessed mountain bike trails with over 1600 vertical feet of great terrain. The trails have been created to meet a full range of riding expectations from beginners to experts.
