Mountain Biking

Kamloops is long renowned as a mountain biking paradise with its rugged landscape, rolling hills, and diverse bike trail systems. Riders of all levels can choose from cross-country trails to technical downhill, with the option to ride year round.

Fact: The Kamloops Bike Ranch is Canada's largest municipal bike park.



Cross-Country Riding

Pineview Valley

This all-mountain area is home to 50km of trails through pine trees that range from green to black diamond and one double black diamond. Explore the wide array of cross-country climbs and fun, flowy descents.

Note: Trails on the east side are open year-round, west side trails are closed until July 1st.


Lac du Bois Protected Grasslands

Whether you're new to mountain biking or an intermediate rider, Lac du Bois offers 20km of cross-country trails. Be rewarded with views of Kamloops and the Thompson Valley as you climb and descend through the sage-scented grasslands.​


Kenna Cartwright Park

Home to over 40km of mountain bike trails, Kenna Cartwright Park is the largest municipal park in BC and provides fast, flowing trails through sagebrush and pine trees. As you ride the perimeter of the park, take in panoramic city views.

Hint: It's a great evening ride as the sun is setting. 



Downhill Riding

Kamloops Bike Ranch

"The Ranch" is an iconic part of Kamloops' mountain bike scene with its diverse levels of trails, stadium lights, a jump park, and skills park. It has now evolved into a premier sporting venue that can host regional and national level racing events. Don't want to pedal up? Catch a lift with Mostly Mental Shuttles for only $4 per ride.


Harper Mountain

Located just below Harper Mountain Ski Resort, this trail network is an all-mountain and downhill playground for intermediate and advanced riders. Pedal up the road climb or shuttle with friends and descend down 13 trails - including the iconic race run where the Canadian Enduro Series is held in June.

Note: There is no shuttle service available at the Harper Mountain trail network.


Sun Peaks Resort

The Sun Peaks Bike Park offers up 2,000 feet of lift-access vertical with 40 distinct bike trails that range from flowing machine-made to full downhill. Two new features for 2019 include a 9km top-to-bottom green trail for anyone waiting to start lift-access downhill biking and a Bike Skills Park.
