Pemberton Trails

The Pemberton Valley Trails Association (PVTA) is a society dedicated to creating and maintaining an interconnected network of multi-use trails in the Pemberton Valley.  In cooperation with the Village of Pemberton, the SLRD, First Nations, the province of BC and local land owners, we aim to plan, develop and maintain a Pemberton trail system using off-road routes wherever possible, linking with developed areas.

Meetings are held on the second Wednesday of each month between September and June at 7 pm in the Pemberton Community Centre.   Our Annual General meeting to elect new directors is held in March and the annual trail Maintenance day in April.

For trail maps and more information please visit the Pemberton Valley Trails Association website.

 

Pemberton Off-Road Cycling Association (PORCA)

The Pemberton Off Road Cycling Association (PORCA) was founded to support riders and trails of all levels. Through community involvement and trails stewardship, PORCA strives to maintain and enhance Pemberton's world class riding experience for residents and visitors.

PORCA also hosts a Wednesday night women's ride, known as Bike Club.  Last year, the Club saw an incredible turnout last year - we hosted 27 rides, with an average of 24 riders per week.  People come to Bike Club for many different reasons but the main goal is for everyone to have fun and feel welcome. It's a non-competitive ride for women to share knowledge and to support each other in learning. For more info visit: https://www.porcabikes.com/bikeclub.
