Okanagan Shuswap District

Oliver Mountain


The Ministry of Forests, Lands and Natural Resource Operations is taking steps to protect sensitive ecosystems and species-at-risk on Oliver Mountain from damage by motor vehicles, while also working to enhance recreational opportunities for local motorbike riders.

The ministry’s two-pronged management approach consists of:

  • a prohibition on motor vehicle use on 348 hectares of Oliver Mountain (under the Wildlife Act), which will come into effect on July 1, 2016
  • a proposed 29-hectare recreation site on Oliver Mountain, which would allow motocross use on designated recreational trails only

Members of the public are reminded that they can email comments about the recreation site proposal to Recreation Sites and Trails BC at Ian.McLellan@gov.bc.ca until July 7, 2016. To learn more, please see the June 28, 2016 Information Bulletin below.
