Kamloops is world renowned as the birthplace of freeriding and recognized for its diverse trails. Winter biking and fat biking is gaining popularity worldwide in locations that get blanketed in the snow each winter.


Isobel Lake Winter
Recreational Trails

Located 17 km northwest of Kamloops, Isobel Lake Recreational Trails is home to over 30 km of single track, machine groomed trails. These trails are maintained by a small group of dedicated volunteers. While there is no fee to ride the network, donations are encouraged at the Bicycle Café to maintain this riding area.

The McQueen/Isobel Forest Service Road will be maintained by Argo Road Maintenance down as far as the large turnaround just above Isobel Lake (Eagle Eye Lookout Trail Parking Area).  This is where parking and trail access will be. There is no parking in the bus turnaround area at the McQueen Lake Centre and must be kept clear at ALL times.

Kenna Cartwright Park

Conveniently located within city limits, Kenna Cartwright offers 40 km of accessible and natural trails, making it a top spot for winter biking.
