Elkford and Flathead Valley
For more information, go to the Elk Valley Clubs site.
Warning to riders who are riding in the South Country/Lake Koocanusa area: Don't ride there for now, or you risk a $575 fine. Local Forestry Compliance Officers are charge any motorized user with " environmental damage" under Section 46.1.1 of the Forest & Range Practices Act. This applies to any and all trails. The only place you can ride is on Forest Service Roads if you have proof of at least $200,000 liability insurance.
BCORMA is working hard on this local interpretation of the Section 46.1.1 and expects to get it reversed. I had meetings with the Assistant Deputy Minister of Forestry Operations, and they pledged to cooperate with us.
We still have to do our part and stay on the trails, don't ride in ground nesting bird habitat, and don't create any new trails in the grasslands.
Any questions, call me at 250-412-3444
