Kamloops is world renowned as the birthplace of freeriding and recognized for its diverse trails. Winter biking and fat biking is gaining popularity worldwide in locations that get blanketed in the snow each winter.


Isobel Lake Winter
Recreational Trails

Located 17 km northwest of Kamloops, Isobel Lake Recreational Trails is home to over 30 km of single track, machine groomed trails. These trails are maintained by a small group of dedicated volunteer groomers who make every effort to keep these trails in the best riding conditions. While there is no fee to ride the network, donations are gratefully accepted and appreciated at the Bicycle Café in Kamloops to assist with annual costs of maintaining this riding area.

The McQueen/Isobel Forest Service Road will be maintained by Argo Road Maintenance down as far as the large turnaround just above Isobel Lake (Eagle Eye Lookout Trail Parking Area).  This is where parking and trail access will be for this season. There is no parking in the bus turnaround area at the McQueen Lake Centre and must be kept clear at all times, including weekends and evenings, as the McQueen Lake Centre is accessed year-round by school and community groups.
