MVP Trail Closures

From the MTB Fredericton facebook page…

Certain trails at MVP have been closed by the landowner, with signage, tape, and felled trees. RVC has met with the landowner and is hopeful that a positive resolution can be reached.
While the closure is not a response to any bad behaviour by RVC, mountain bikers, or other trail users, we cannot understate how important it is that we all respect it. DO NOT disturb the trees, tape, and signage and DO NOT use the closed trails. Our ability to work with this landowner and with other property owners and managers going forward depends on everyone’s cooperation.
We will continue to work with the landowner and provide updates as we can.



The Marysville Trail System is completly open. The landowner who had some trails blocked wants everyone to enjoy the weekend before the snow is too deep to mountain bike. He also wants everyone to have a great time fat biking and snowshoeing the trails during the winter months.



One of the main landowners at MVP, Larry Wilson, has asked that his land no longer be used for mountain biking. Mr. Wilson has permitted trail building and riding on his land since at least 2005 which has contributed significantly to the growth of mountain biking in the area. We would like to thank Mr. Wilson for allowing us to use and enjoy his land for the previous 15 years. Unfortunately that means that EFFECTIVE IMMEDIATELY the following trails are closed to mountain biking:

Upper Wilsons
Lower Wilsons
Best Bitter
Hole in the Wall
Country View (the segment from Lower Double Cross to Hole in the Wall remains open).

We would ask that you respect the request of the landowner and stay off of these trails. If you see anyone else using these trails please communicate this change to them. Trailforks has been updated with these changes. Signage will be placed in the coming days.

Note- refresh your trail forks map on your app to see the most up to date trails.

Looks like Kingdom now with a big hole in the middle.

Ouch! Here’s the old map for reference

Thanks for that. It’s a large chunk. The newest trails are at the north. They’ve been developing jump and flow trails on a slope which are crazy fun, so still a worthwhile place to ride.

It’s part of the game, I know, but that’s gotta be gut wrenching for the builder and local riders.


Sorry to hear. Not that he needs to give one, but were there any reasons given for this? I’m always curious as to why these relationships with landowners fall apart (In hopes of avoiding more in the future).

I haven’t heard a reason yet. Even last year they seemed to keep the reason out of public discussion for the most part. It’s too bad, because it might help us all in other trail area discussions.
