Near Kamloops, the Buse Hill area is open to ATV riding.
To reach the trailhead from Barnhartvale Road, take Robbins Range Road. You will see Buse Hill in the distance, its right side is a sloping hill, and its left side is a straight drop down. When you find the old homestead on the right, and an unfenced open area on the left, you are there. This is a relatively small area. The main road up has a few branches that we did not check out due to snow. When you approach the top of the first plateau, you will see a large "DANGER" sign in a tree. This sign warns of the sudden drop just past the sign; apparently some snowmobilers came roaring up the hill, didnt realize that the horizon marked the end of the ground, and sailed over the edge, falling about 350 feet to their deaths. From the plateau, you can see a hoodoo to the left; there is a trail that leads to the next plateau, and then to the last plateau closest to the hoodoo.
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, Buse Hill is the 50th most popular ATV riding trail of all 61 ATV trails in British Columbia. Several of the better atv trails are nearby Buse Hill including Logan Lake Resource Management Area, Sciutto Lake FSR, Batchelor Heights / Lac du Bois, Greenstone Mountain, Inks Lake and Whispering Pines 4x4 Track.
