The Cumberland Trail Network is home to some 180km’s of trails and an extremely active local community and UROC membership. This new trail illumination initiative is another Cumberland first and will serve as a 24/7 trail user experience through the spring, summer and fall seasons.
120 Solar powered illumination units will be mounted on 12ft poles and installed in the trail skills area close to the fringes of the Village of Cumberland.
Mosaic Forest Management and the United Riders of Cumberland (UROC) wish to advise users of the trails in and around Allen Lake and on Davis Lake Main of forestry operations this spring, please read for further information.

This weekend is the Island Cup XC-cross country mountain bike race on Sunday, May 15th. Please see the route map and try to avoid these highlighted trails if you're not racing. You'll see the trails marked with Shimano flagging tape and arrow markers. The race is live from 11am till 2pm and we're thrilled to announce that we will have a youth-only course appropriate for kids under 12 and the best part is its FREE.
If you haven't signed up yet, you best get yourself registered as spots are few and youth places are not too many.
Sign up today, link in the bio. …
The Cumby Trail race will take place today, May 7th. Up to 800 runners will be stretching their legs in the quest to win the 7th edition of the race.

Fingers crossed the weather holds and happy racing. …
During the weekdays from 5am till 5pm the clear cut section of Vanilla will be closed.
This is a while the boundary along Shortline is seeing active logging operations and a safety distance of two tree lengths is required to operate safely. In terms of trails this means that the safety boundary must extend to the top of the clear cut section of Vanilla, thus shutting off Shortline and then extending the boundary to where Shortline meets Blue Collar.
During weekends the signs will be lowered and access is permitted however, during the week and during operating hours of 5am to 5pm, please abide by all signage. Operations along the Shortline boundary will be for a few weeks dependent on weather. …
Thanks to the trail building gang of volunteers who worked effortlessly with Al Munday of the River Rats to recently complete the sanctioned climb trail up Nikkei mountain. The trail is to be called the Red Tape trail after the well known beer at the local brewery 😉
This new blue square trail connects the road from Branch420 to the Ridge trail via Ridge Climb on the southern side of the mountain. Ridge climb is a steeper but easy black diamond trail to hike-a-bike or ride with spectacular views as it benches underneath the Ridge cliff. Both of these climb trails give trail users the quick and easy access to the top of Nikkei and all the preceding trails there after such as Rhizome, Garlic bread, Banzai and onto Woodcutter or Popper.
Stoked to build a berm and give some love back to the trails. Thank you to the gang at Forbidden Bike Company for putting in the hard yards with some tail love and care.
