The mountain biking community in Burns Lake is well organized and highly active, which makes for excellent, accessible, and easy to navigate riding trails.
Boer Mountain Recreation Site
This site has over 4000 hectares of Crown land – just a few minutes’ drive north of town. The area features a campground on Kager Lake, the “hub” for approximately 30 km of downhill and 60 km of cross-country trails. Beginner to intermediate riders will enjoy the trails around Kager Lake.
Advanced riders wishing to challenge their abilities may choose from many advanced options including the 18 km machine built all-mountain trail Razorback which runs from the Bike Park to the top of Boer Mountain. From the top there are a variety of decent options: the 10 km Pigasus down country trail; black diamonds Full Boer or Shawn’s Flow; blue runs Charlotte’s Web and the signature Gravity Logic built When Pigs Fly; all of which culminate in a spectacular 2000+ square foot wallride – the Pierce Hofer Memorial – that sits adjacent to the Kager Lake parking lot.
Kager Lake also features 12 picturesque walk-in camping/picnicking sites, seven car-camping sites and a beginner-level skills park next to the campground. The park’s well-marked routes twist around a wetland area, several streams, and a number of small lakes. The Bike Park includes a variety of cross-country and downhill trails, with difficulty levels ranging from beginner to advanced. Various trails include fun and challenging features such as jumps, drops, wall rides boardwalks, and a Four Cross track.
