Mountain Biking

Feel the rush as you explore the many trails in the Valemount Bike Park, in the heart of the Robson valley.

Adventure Galore at the Valemount Bike Park

We love mountain biking so much we have our own bike park! The park’s main staging area is minutes from Valemount. That’s a quick pedal from town via the Hillside Drive access road. Hop on your bike and head down 5th avenue and take a hard right after the train tracks. Then take your first left and 1 km up the road is the main staging area.

You’ll find more information on our bike park at the Valemount and Area Recreation Development Association (VARDA) website. For more information on other mountain bike trails in BC go the Mountain Bike BC website, where Valemount also has a community listing.

Suggested Rides

Test your mountain biking skills at Bacon by NDI or on Turducken which begins at the end of High Roller, this downhill alignment is a feature rich 2.5-km adrenaline rush. Make a day of it with a biking adventure on Swift Creek, a 10-km-long round trip ride on a hand built old school cross country trail.

For a full day out on the trails, try Tech Zone, a chain of 2.5 loops, situated in a small area, provides some technically challenging trails. This one is sure to get your legs burning. Novices and intermediate riders love Inversion, a handmade cross country trail.

Do a hike and bike. Bike to the trailhead to the north end of Kinney Lake and start hiking your way to the top of Berg Lake in Mount Robson Provincial Park. Beginners, families and nature lovers enjoy the 7 km (4 mi) ride to the Cranberry Marsh.

Top Pedal Adventures

  1. Choose your adventure in the Valemount Bike Park with 25 trails with varying degrees for all ages and abilities.
  2. On Turducken, you begin at the end of High Roller, this downhill alignment is a feature rich 2.5-km adrenaline rush. More advanced than the Tin Foil Hat, this trail offers a more challenging descent to those looking to get a bit more technical. Tree lines, natural rock features and a flow like you have never seen are all highlights of this trail.
  3. Swift Creek is a 10-km-long round trip ride on a hand built old school cross country trail. The finish will utilize a bit of town road to return to the 5 Mile Road and ultimately back up to the staging area. This is more designed for hiking although bikes are allowed.
  4. Tech Zone is a chain of 2.5 loops, situated in a small area, provides some technically challenging trails. Frequent and often dramatic changes in elevation combined with rock create a superb environment to get the legs burning. Access via the Swift Creek and Lower Climbing trail, the alignment twists and turns through the topography with numerous optional technical trail features and a combination of fast open turns and bench cut trail.
  5. Inversion is a handmade cross country trail that is suitable for novice–intermediate riders. For novice riders this may feel like a beginner downhill ride; for intermediate riders this may feel more like a cross country ride. This trail intersects the Provincial trail at two separate occasions and gives riders a variety of choices. This is a great ride for anyone pedalling from the town site.
  6. Head to the Valemount Farmer’s Market and pick up a freshly baked pie, a jar of jam and a unique handmade necklace to commemorate your journey
  7. Bike from the trail head to the north end of Kinney Lake and start hiking your way to the top of Berg Lake in Mount Robson Provincial Park.
  8. Take the family for a 7 km (4 mi) ride to the Cranberry Marsh, a place for beginners and nature lovers
  9. Bacon by NDI is designed to be the ultimate integration of all the various bicycling handling skills, the idea behind our flow trail is to provide a low risk, gravity assisted trail which users of variable skill level can use to develop their skills. 2 km of berms, rollers and manageable jumps will flow you to the lower staging area and guarantee to put a smile on your face.
