Southwest of Chilliwack, the Vedder Mountain ATV riding trail system is a 200km multi-use network that is open to ATV riding. It is known as a very techincal riding area, but there are a few sections for beginners and intermediates. There are plenty of switchbacks, bridges, mud crossings and narrow sidehills to challenge all riders.

The Vedder Mountain ATV riding area is maintained by the Vedder Mountain Trails Association, which consists of all the main user groups in the region. The Vedder Mountain trail system is usually discussed in terms of five distinct riding zones: Funland/South Ridge, Lakeland/Cultus Lake, Majuba Hill/Westside, Prisonerland/Westside, and Proland/Eastside.

To reach the ATV riding at Vedder Mountain, start by using the Vedder Ridge trailhead. Follow Highway 1 to the Sardis Exit. Head south over the Vedder River and follow the road to the right. Turn left at the first light. At the gravel road on the right (Parmenter/Vedder Mountain FSR), find a place to park. The gravel Parmenter/Vedder Mountain FSR encircles the mountain and provides access to many of the trails.

Vedder Mountain is slated to be partically closed down to recreational users. Weyerhauser/Northwest Hardwoods is planning to log several cut blocks on the mountain. So make sure to contact the Vedder Mountain Trails Association about the current status before heading out.
