North of Chilliwack near Harrison and Lake Errock, the Weaver Creek area is open to ATV riding.
To reach the trailhead, follow Highway 7 past Lake Errock. At the Sasquatch Inn, turn left. Continue on the paved road past the Sandpiper Golf Course. After 5 miles, the road is on the left near the sign for Weaver Creek Forestry Recreation Campsite. Park near the campsite if you can. Ride your quad out from the campsite the way you came in. The first trail to the left will have you on your way (try asking the camp caretaker if you cant locate it). This first section of trail is a great warm up; its rocky and has some good steps to climb. Slightly rough; maybe rated 2-3. The road continues on for a long way with some off-shoots, but explore main trail first. Eventually you will arrive at a steep, raging wash-out. If you ride down the wash-out, you will find a narrow, homemade log ladder/ramp just wide enough for your quad. If you re a beginner, have a friend spot you. The trail ends very shortly afterwards, but it looked like a work in progress so it may eventually go further. This is the toughest part of the whole ride. Coming out of washout is short and steep, requiring 4wd. You can go back down the main trail and explore the many off-shoots.
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, Weaver Creek is the 15th most popular ATV riding trail of all 61 ATV trails in British Columbia. Several of the better atv trails are nearby Weaver Creek including Harrison East FSR, Harrison West FSR and Hale Creek.
