Trail ATV riding

From La Casa, it is just a 20-minute drive south on Westside road (towards Kelowna) to the recreation area where you can unload your motorized ride into the trail. The trails vary in difficulty level and user groups. Make sure you know your level before heading out to ensure that you and others are safe.

One primary season pass is $90, and you may also purchase secondary season passes for $70 each.
