Vernon: Cosens Creek MTB Area
After a chill day cruising the Shuswap Trails we ventured to Vernon where the word was that the trails were flowy and not too technical. They turned out to be about as opposite of what we rode the day before as you could get. Above is what we found. You could ride around any of the features, but why pass up an opportunity like this? Two finger braking was getting easier.
Loam, wooden features, steeps, and rock drops. Out here in the North Okanagan the locals eat bowls of bark for breakfast. Get specific when you need to know what a trail is like. Their green trails might require a few ego checks to be cashed by the end of the day. Vernon was challenging but rewarding from top to bottom. As with any of the places we visited, there were other areas in Vernon that had easier trails, but like any proud trail steward would do, we were taken to some of their personal favorites.
Trails were well marked and it was easy to find a map and your way around. Many places I’ve been to over the years could have used a few of these posts. If you need maps, check out the North Okanagan Cycling Society.
