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.
Mosaic Forest Management and the United Riders of Cumberland (UROC) wishes to advise users of the trails in and around BR524, A900 and A3100 (highlighted in red) that road building activities are planned to begin June 23rd, 2021.

The vast majority of the Cumberland Trail Network is on private industrial forest lands, with the remainder of trails on forest/watershed and/or park lands owned by the Village of Cumberland. The land owners have agreed to allow for trail building and trail use on these lands, but under the expectation of certain rules, requirements and processes including solid management plans and sufficient insurance coverages. After years of discussions and advocacy by UROC, the Cumberland Forest Trails agreement (the “Agreement”), a first of its kind agreement established by the United Riders of Cumberland (UROC) and the land owners in 2016, created a unique solution that allows the public to recreate on private industrial lands that had been previously closed to recreational use.
We did it! The Climbing trail is complete and open for use.
The United Riders of Cumberland (UROC) completed the five-kilometre climbing (ascent only) trail, which allows users to access the upper part of the trail network without having to travel on resource roads.
