Larose Forest

Notice: OFTR Membership Required to Ride in Larose  Forest.

Non members can purchase a 48 hour pass from OFTR here

Larose Forest is a local riding area that came about as a result of a prolonged effort by a small number of BMA members. Members worked persistently and diligently with County representatives to gain access to this County owned forest.

Larose Forest riding area offers a short technical single track loop in an open pine forest at the start. Approximately half the loop is suitable for novice riders, the other half is suitable for intermediate or above riders. It is generally flat terrain, with a shallow ravine, and some short high banks (like riding on ditch dredging), parts of the trail are rooty and rough, and there are a few bridges. As a small compact area, you will never be more than a couple of kilometers from the parking area.
