Southwest of Dawson Creek, the Bear Mountain area has miles of ATV routes.
To reach the trailhead from Dawson Creek, head west for roughly 5km. Turn south on South Dawson Road for another 5km. Park near the gravel pit.
From the parking area, there are several nice desinations, including Radar Lake, Pouce Coupe (20km), and One Island Lake (70km).
Note: As of August 2008, the Ministry of Forests Regulations require all ATV drivers to be at least 16 years of age and have a valid drivers license to ride on Forest Service Roads. In addition, the ATV must have valid third-party liability insurance, which is typically around $120 per year. The Conservation Officers will issue a $600 ticket if you do not have proof of insurance.
Overall, Bear Mountain Loop is the 6th most popular ATV riding trail of all 61 ATV trails in British Columbia.
