Burns Lake (BC, Canada) Bronze-level

Burns Lake, a town of only 2,500 people in northern British Columbia, is Canada’s first IMBA Ride Center and a family-friendly riding destination. Since 2006, the Burns Lake Mountain Biking Association has been working with trail professionals to build more than 40 km (25 mi) of singletrack, 20 km (12.4 mi) of downhill trails, and four bike parks. The signature downhill trail—When Pigs Fly—contains more than 100 berms, tabletops, and other features and is accessible by one of the many shuttles run by the local bike shop.

Riders wanting to go the distance can easily create a 30 km (18.6 mi) cross-country ride up Boer Mountain. The trails radiate out from Kager Lake, which has several free campsites, including RV sites and canoe-in tent sites right on the lake.

Once a year, IMBA recognizes outstanding mountain bike trails and locations with the IMBA Model Trail awards. The goal of this program — which encompasses Epics, Flow Trails, Gateway Trails and Ride Centers — is to inspire and inform, so that we can all have more great places to ride.
