Mountain Biking in British Columbia

Mountain Biking the Kamloops Thompson Nicola Region of British Columbia

The Kamloops and Shuswap region offers some of the best off-road cycling in British Columbia. Kamloops offers a lot of diversity for riders, from desert-like singletrack to high speed alpine down hill riding. One of the most popular and accessible areas, is Mount Dufferin, located just west of city centre. Away from the city, you'll find mountain biking at Stake Lake, Inks Lake, Bush Lake, and Greenstone Mountain.

From Kamloops head east on the Trans Canada Highway # 1 into the Shuswap region and Salmon Arm. Before you reach Salmon Arm there are two courses you should investigate, they are Bastion Mountain and Rubberhead. The Mount Ida trail which can be reached from city centre is for advanced riders where the view of the Shuswap is unsurpassed. Other trails are Prudential and Little Mountain.

Revelstoke, on the Trans Canada Highway east of Salmon Arm, is a quiet town surrounded by mountains, awesome scenery and one of the best biking areas in the province. It's the Keystone Standard Basin Trail, which is physically and technically difficult and only for the strong of heart and limbs. Be safe, have fun!
