The mountain bike community in Burns Lake is well organized and highly active, which makes for excellent, accessible, and easy to navigate mountain biking trails.
There are two areas for riding: Boer Mountain Recreation Site and Burns Lake Bike Park. The main mountain biking area is Boer Mountain, just a few minutes drive north of town. Burns Lake Bike Park is located adjacent to Boer Mountain Recreation Site.
The recreation site and bike park are managed by the local bike club (Burns Lake Mountain Biking Association).
