The United Riders of Cumberland (UROC) are installing sign badges on certain trails throughout the Cumberland trail network that will indicate required or recommended travel direction.. These signs will apply to all trail users and will be added to the sign posts at the bottom of the trails listed below. The installation of directional signage is a response to user feedback, the volume of traffic and variety of users on the Cumberland trail network. The goal is to help maintain safety and enjoyment for all trail users without unduly limiting route options. The list of trails with directional signage may change as trail usage continues to develop, new trails are added, or issues are identified.

One of the United Riders of Cumberland’s core purposes is to advocate for non-motorized trail use on privately owned lands. The agreement reached with the private landowners around Cumberland in 2015 specifically grants access for non-motorized, recreational use of the trails and for motorized access when necessary for events or trail work.
Cumberland, BC – The United Riders of Cumberland (UROC) have hired their first Trail Crew staff. As another first for the association, the Trail Crew will continue to help maintain the almost 100 km of trail in the network.
What is the Trailhead Signage Project?
The project’s primary goal is to install trailhead signs at the start and end of each trail in the Cumberland trail network, with each sign indicating the trail name and difficulty rating. These signs will help UROC fulfill its responsibilities as land managers by improving trail user safety and experience, as well as providing a communication tool for emergency situations.
