Are there any trails in Abbostford that a guy could test a freshly repaired truck on? My Jeep is in Aldergrove and I don't want to be far from home if it craps out.

Chris, try calling Doug from the club. Maybe he'll let you tear around the back forty at his place. Mud, hills, but no rocks. Bring BEER

vedder mtn? go up from cultus(there is another way thats more interesting but I only know how to get there, not how to give directions to it). go up the forrestry road and when you get to the point where the loop joins back in stay right so you will go along the cliffs looking over yarrow and abbotsford and keep going till you come across the yellow gate on the left. most of the time this gate is unlocked so just push it open and close it once your through it and enjoy the climb up to the tower. once at the tower keep going around it and continue along the trail. its interesting but simple. to be fun you have to force yourself to take the hard line. on the trail theres a climb in whats like just one giant rut, its pretty neat but not difficult. this trail will bring you out (eventually to the other side of the mountain and join back up with the forrestry road loop.

trail rating: 1.5 out of a possible 4. its doable in 2wd if you have a traction decice of some type.

DOH! the trail I mentioned is no longer a through trail. it has been blocked at the towers on vedder mtn by ditch's and large boulders.
