Mill Pond

Mill Pond is popular for its mountain biking trails and hiking routes, you can make an afternoon of it and come set up for a family picnic at one of the tables and bring the kids bikes to check out the kid's mountain bike skills park to the west of the parking lot.

In the winter, look out for freezing temperatures as some years we have found it to be cold enough to freeze the waters and local hockey players have been known to practice in nature's arena.

With a small parking lot overlooking the water, there is further overflow parking across the street and slightly to the west if the area is full.

Also, check out Energy Wisdom and Tea just up the road for your beverages and snacks.

For the mountain bike trails on Bear Mountain, pick up your hard copy of the map at the Visitor Centre or view it here:
