    Off-roading banned

    The provincial government is banning off-road vehicle use in the backcountry across most of Southeast B.C.

    In response to extreme fire risk, recreational off-roading is banned in the Cariboo Fire Centre, Kamloops Fire Centre and Southeast Fire Centre. In addition, all on-highway vehicles must remain on defined road surfaces.

    “The operation of any off-road vehicles in these regions during the current wildfire situation creates a potential wildfire risk,” a news release reads “While jeeps, trucks and other on-highway vehicles are permitted on designated roads, they are not allowed off-road.”

    The ban does not apply to private lands or national parks, nor does it apply to emergency responders or commercial/ industrial users who operate vehicles for farming, emergency response or business purposes.

    The BC Wildfire Services says they will be continually monitoring conditions and the prohibition may be expanded or rescinded as needed.

    I'm assuming this is for ATV's and UTV's only?

    I assume that does not affect FSR's for trucks?

    Can we still do some scouting in a pickup as long as we stay on the "defined road"?

    As I understand it, ORV's (ATV's etc) are not allowed in the bush. At all. Vehicles (trucks cars) are still allowed on the roads.
    To answer your last question. Yes, but you might not see much.

    Come on rain!!! Lets all dance!!
    Technical trail obstacles are the difference that separates mountain bikers from road bikers, sort of in the same way that opposable thumbs separate humans from, say, turkeys

    Come on Stan. We are heading to the FV and plan on doing some hiking and fishing but we have to go up a couple FSR's to get there. Chill out dude. Also, hunting season opens in less than a month in many parts of the province and for those of us who work, weekends are at a premium to do some looking around in non-fire burnt areas such as the FV or the Similkameen.
