Trail Description:

The Lizard Mountain Bike trail starts with a series of switchbacks climbing the hillside east of the parking lot. At the first junction turn left at the signs, and ride until you meet the old forestry road. Turn right onto the road and continue climbing. You will pass the hiking trail on your right, then come to a bench with views down into the steep canyon and impressive rocky walls over Sicamous Creek. The Lizard continues along this road connecting back to Sicamous at MacLean-McPherson Rd. Loop back through Sicamous to the trailhead, or tailor an out and back returning the way you came.
