Trail Description:

The Rubberhead started off as a single mountain bike trail that has now expanded to include 18 trail sections, 10 of which were added in the fall of 2009. The expanded area offers a variety of downhill mountain bike options for intermediate to advance riders. From steep and rooty, to open and flowy, this system has something for everyone.

The best approach is to shuttle from the 2.5km area of the 110 Forest Service Road (see access). Here you will find parking and maps of the trail system. Trailheads range from 5km to 11km up the road. Riding up is an option and a great workout, but the road is on the steep side. Watch for new sections to be built in the future providing cross-country and uphill options. Experienced snowshoers have discovered the new trails provide some fun uphill circuits to explore in the winter.

Travel east of Salmon Arm on Hwy. 1 approx. 4km past the Federated Co-op mill. Turn right onto Forest Service Road (FSR) #110 just after a right corner on the highway and an info pullout on the left. Follow the 110 FSR up approx. 2.5km where the road widens and an old narrow skid road goes up to the left by the main trail sign. Park here. To continue to the various trailheads, shuttle or pedal the 110 FSR staying on the main road. Trail posts mark various sections to 8.2km where you turn right, up the steep hill, and follow the road to 10.5km. Look for the trail post on the left at an obvious landing and parking area. This is the top trailhead. Look for the trail through the top of the cut block.
