About the Okanagan Trail Riders Association
This is the web site of the Okanagan Trail Riders Association, a group of motorcycle and ATV enthusiasts who are protecting your opportunity to ride in the Okanagan Valley. Efforts by club members have secured your access to riding areas that were disappearing fast! The Bear Creek riding area is now designated in the LRMP as motorized recreation, and recognised as a Provincial Recreation Site. Without your club at work, this would not have happened, and there could easily be a ban on riding in the area. Look at the maps section for more details.
The Okanagan Trail Riders Association wants to work with others to ensure that there will always be good, well maintained, safe riding areas for you and future generations of riders. Club members have been working to improve the Bear Creek riding area, and have plans to turn this area into a showpiece on trail management.
OTRA has worked with other stakeholders, including the Lakeview Irrigation District, the Regional District of the Central Okanagan, Recreation Sites and Trails BC, our local MLA, and many others to ensure that the views of our recreational community are heard.
Hundreds of thousands of dollars has been spent in the Bear Creek Motorized Recreation area, and much more is in the planning stage. Without any doubt, this area will become one of the finest motorized trail networks in the world.
