This well-travelled trail is a local favourite. With its panoramic views of the Peace River, this trail offers 20-35 kms (one way) of amazing landscapes. Note: one wooden gate must be opened on the trail; be sure to close it behind you. Directions: Highway 97 south to Taylor, cross the bridge, third left (large dirt road) and follow for several kms to a large gravel pit on left. Park and continue on quads.
ATV and Snowmobile clubs in the area use a system of trails located in and around the region. Many trails cross private land with livestock, so please ride respectfully.

This trail is a two hour drive north of Fort St. John; watch for the signs just past the Buckinghorse Service Station on the Alaska Highway. It is very scenic and there are private cabins along the way that may be rented. As well, the club has an open cabin near Redfern Lake. This trail is for experienced riders only and outdoor survival skills are highly recommended.
With a 50 km direct route from the Gagne Road Trailhead, this area of play has over 300 kms of accessible maintained trails.

Directions: follow Highway 97 south across the Taylor Bridge, up the hill past the break check area, and continue past to the 230 Road. Turn right and drive 10 kms to the top of the hill.

Please keep in mind that this trail does cross active logging and oil patch roads, and while trail markers do warn those users of the trail, they have the right of way, so please cross safely.
