2016 BURTON RIDE
In late July eleven members of the Kelowna ATV Club and one member of the Cowichan Valley ATV Club participated in a three day ride in the mountains east of Burton, BC. Four members of the Arrow Lakes ATV Club acted as our guides on the first and second day’s rides. Their local knowledge was indispensable in navigating the varied terrain we encountered. Fortunately there had been a lot of rain the day before we started which kept the dust down most of the time. On the first day we rode up a mountain, stopped for a look at the old “Millie Mack” mine and then progressed further up into the alpine meadows and some of us went even further up the trail into the snow. The views were spectacular and at times we were up into the clouds. On day two we did a 118 km trip out along Caribou Creek and around the “Three Sisters Loop”. We travelled on every type of road and trail along the way. Fortunately none of them were overly difficult. On day three we rode up high again to “Mountain Meadows” and were rewarded with great roads, trails and views. Evenings were a time to get together and relax in the Historical Park Campground in Burton. Many thanks to the Arrow Lakes ATV Club for helping us out!
