Trepanier Bench Road ATV Trails

Near Kelowna, the Trepanier Bench Road is open to ATV riding.

To reach the trailhead from Highway 97C, use the Trepanier Bench Road exit. There is a parking area on the right near the exit.

There are many trails of varying difficulty criss-crossing through this area. You can also access a powerline road; the "truck" route that looks like it just criss-crosses the powerline road actually has branches and offshoots all along it, so do check it out. One of the branches is a twisty little trail that pops out on a bluff high above Hwy 97C, and offers a great view if the weather is clear. If you stick to the powerline road, it will take you under the Coquihalla Hwy and eventually past Brenda Mine.

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.
