Greenwood is a natural destination for mountain biking the Trans Canada Trail, which runs right through town parallel to the main street (Highway 3).
It is also an excellent starting point for daytrips and overnight rides in the region.
Trans Canada Trail
The Trans Canada Trail passes through Greenwood on the rail bed of the Columbia & Western Railway (a CPR subsidiary), which ran between Castlegar in the Kootenay Rockies, and Midway in the Boundary Country, where it connected with the Kettle Valley Railway.
Eholt Day Trip
Pedalling uphill to the Eholt Summit at 1028m/3373ft isn't too tough a ride on railway grades constructed to accommodate heavy freight trains. Travelling east from Greenwood, the trail passes through agricultural land then climbs forested slopes into the southern Monashee Mountains.
