Northwest of Kamloops and northeast of Batchelor Heights, there is a designated ATV riding area just to the south of the Lac Du Bois Provincial Park boundaries (riding is not permitted inside the park). Watch for signs designating restricted areas.
To reach the trailhead from Kamloops, head north on Highway 5 and turn left at third light. Follow the signage to Westsyde Road. Then follow signage to Bachelor Heights and then to Lac Du Bois Road. Continue on Lac du Bois Road for 10 minutes to the trailhead parking area.
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.
