Rubberhead trails in Salmon Arm are also worth a hit as you drive through. just north of the metropolis of Canoe. a lot of fun and nothing too extreme

trail map is here, Toilet Bowl is the pick of the bunch

So Gnarbar on Rubberhead is there one section of the hill you'd recommend for hike&bike.
Also, is there any parking areas on the FSR like on my local hill?; (so one can park and do laps of a certain trail.)

I go through there a bit for work but never made it up there.

& congrats 'phish on your new addition. I'm anxious to see pictures, since I've been thinking about acquiring a hunting breed as a trail dog. My wife like's Marmaduke dogs (Great Danes) but I wonder how they'd do on a trail being that size. (Go ass over tip, I think.)

you could hike a bike to the top of Toilet Bowl, that would be my best suggestion. maybe 1800-2000' hike up an FSR, not TOO steep but still, an FSR.

as you hike up, look left on a right hand switchback. you'll see a wooden post with the trail drop in there. there's actually a connector trail (not on the map) that goes up above that like a nice fast warm up section. I liked. probably worth just going all the way to the top, about 2500' in total, and going from there. park at the bottom by the trail map sign thingummy

Is the Bulldog hotel at Silver Star any good?

we've only ever stayed at the swanky condos up there - very nice (especially the hot tub on the deck) but they're a bit pricey. Don't think that I know anyone who's stayed at the bulldog but I think that the hostel is ok.

I like it ! Cheap too . 390 for five nights double queen beds then you get a deal of 10% on lift pass. Go out the door jump on your bike and right to blast off . Very convient.

On the topic of dogs. My female 55lb yellow lab vs 105lb rottie.

Loading up my Kona Ute tomorrow to ride to the Airport, then flying to the 2013 Kona dealer launch. Can't wait to bag on demo bikes for two days. Then get to ride my Ute home again. Should be a good week.

I love that photo, the look on Emma's face is pretty classic.

PM sent, stayed at the FireLight Lodge for our 15th wedding anniversary for 3 nights and was very reasonable, plus upgraded our room at no charge and was not requested. Very nice!

My year and a half old Jack Russell Roxy chillin on a hot day.
My dog doing what she does best on a hot day...the heat keeps her from running around like an escaped mental patient!
