Gates Creek is a fast and flowy mountain bike trail near Clearwater, BC. It has some nice jumps and log rides along the way.

Recommended for anyone.

Directions:

Up camp to road then take a right a Clearwater River Road. There will be a left turn not that far into the trail before the power lines. Drive up the road and there should be a ribbon at the trail head, but otherwise the start of the trail is reasonably easy to see.

Downside Poor directions to trail Comment Go up Camp two road, you can either turn right and head to the road leading off to the left as described and if you do keep right going all the way up the road until you cross the cattle guard and creek, then turn right. Don't go straight up the steep hill.

Or from Camp two road go up another km to Road 1, says Canyon Creek on the sign. Go up, keeping right at the fork, follow it up to and under the power lines. Follow the road but just before the sharp first switch back to the left, go right onto a trail. Follow that trail down to the next road. Turn left and go up until you cross the cattle guard and then creek, turn right.

Follow the old road, partially grown over for 1.5, Gates Creek trail is on your right, There are some ribbons but they are hard to see. If you get to the clearing at the end of the road, you have gone about 50 m too far.

Follow Gates Creek Trail all the way back to the road. From the road turn left to go to River Road and back to Camp Two or right then keep going left and back to Camp two.

The trail loop from Camp Two road is 8-10 km and takes about an hour. Take water.
