is a biking destination consisting of an extensive network of
downhill trails designed by a very active, local mountain biking
group in the community of Williams Lake, British Columbia, Canada.
The trail system on Fox Mountain is one of three popular mountain
biking destinations in the region. The other two include Desous
Mountain and West Syde Trails.
The Fox Mountain trail system is designed for mountain bikers,
but be aware that hikers like to to explore these trails also.
The trails run along a ridge, moving from east to west, and then
down Fox Mountain. The easiest entrance to find accessing the
trail network is at the end of Mason Road - which is paved.
Most biking routes on the mountain are rated as intermediate.
Many of the those routes connect to exisiting routes, combining
for some interesting downhill and single track runs. Along some
of those runs mountain bikers will find a few expert and advanced
runs also to push their limits.
A few of the routes include the "Itchy Scratchy", "Dog
Bone " and "Jimmy's Fox Trail". The 20 minute downhill
"Itchy Scratchy" expert run is a steep run, along a
narrow trail biking pass hoodoos and cliffs. The "Dog Bone
" is an expert route filled with stunts, jumps and switchbacks.
The "Jimmy's Fox Trail" travels through trees, along
a ridge, providing views of the whole valley before getting serious
with some downhill.
It is important to note that all users of the trail system stay
on the trail system so to minimize the impact to the forest. Some
trails neighbour private property and residential homes so please
respect the neighbourhood. All riders pack out your garbage and
be aware of wildlife and hikers on the trails. Have fun.
