Hogzilla Trail Project

Burns Lake Mountain biking association – Hogzilla trail


Nechako-Kitamaat Development Fund Society partnership

Burns Lake, BC, May 30, 2017– "Hogzilla" is a proposed 5 kilometre, advanced-skill downhill mountain bike run located in the Boer Mountain trail system.  Ride Burns anticipates this trail will become a very popular attraction in the already renowned Boer Mountain Rec Site trail network. This partnership, funded with support from Ride Burns and Nechako-Kitamaat Development Fund Society, will complete this new trail project, providing additional diversity in attracting more mountain biking tourism, and adding to the skills of the local and regional riding community.

“Not only will this trail augment a superlative array of downhill trails in the Recreational Area, it will fill a niche between the existing intermediate and advanced trails providing an additional opportunity for riders to hone and upgrade their skills.” – Guy Epkens-Shaffer (Ride Burns President)

The project will promote long-term community economic diversification and will promote economic development in the area. This project benefits local businesses, contractors and our community by promoting a healthy opportunity for people to  explore in Burns Lake.

Ride Burns Vision Statement – Burns Lake is a World Class mountain biking destination and a vibrant mountain biking community.

A special Thank You to the Nechako-Kitamaat Development Fund Society for making this project possible.
