Blue Mountain, Maple Ridge

Blue Mountain in Maple Ridge is to off-road motorcycling what the North Shore of Vancouver is to mountain biking. Miles of tight challenging trails built in the coastal rain forest just a few minutes east of Vancouver provide a haven for the experienced off roader, especially convenient for many who live & work in the Big City, and want to ride close to home. 

The Blue Mountain trail network is stewarded by the Blue Mountain Motorcycle Club (BMMC), a non-profit society founded in 2003. The BMMC is working hard on Blue Mountain to establish a permanent staging area for off road motorcyclists, and to expand our trail network to include more novice friendly trails.  We strive to work with Government  Blue Mountain Motorcycle Club promotes the safe, responsible, sustainable use of off-road motorcycles at one of the best to ride in the world: Blue Mountain (also known as McNutt). We work closely with local and provincial government agencies and and other interested stake holders to responsibly manage this awesome trail resource, in order to help you have a place to ride in the Lower Mainland region of BC today and into the future. 

Advanced /Expert level trail riders call this area Heaven. Excellent practice area for Masters/Pro & Expert riders, also trials bikes due to the overall high difficulty of the trails. Rated "as-hard or harder" than the Romaniacs Hard Enduro terrain by Tony G. from New Zealand, after a day of riding & punishment.

Our trail network includes over 100 kms of trails for the dirt bike enthusiast, geared towards the more fit & experienced rider/enduro racer, with many obstacles such as rock steps, roots/rocks, steep climbs and downhills can make for an extreme riding experience, and is guaranteed to test your riding skills and endurance.

THIS IS NOT A RECOMMENDED RIDING AREA FOR BEGINNERS, FAMILIES, SMALL KIDS (OR PEOPLE THAT CRY EASILY!). WE RECOMMEND THE NICKLEMINE RIDING AREA AS MORE APPROPRIATE INSTEAD.
