The Kootenay Rockies region offers some of British Columbia’s most diverse mountain biking terrain, from epic all-day rides to extreme downhill trails.
For long distance cyclists, miles of excellent road and backcountry trails await, along with easy-grade rail trails offering spectacular mountain views.
For years, Rossland has unofficially been known as the “Mountain Biking Capital of Canada” (although Squamish holds the official trademark for that title), featuring the world-renowned Seven Summits Trail.
Nelson is a freeriding haven, Golden boasts more than 50 trails, and Fernie, Invermere/Radium Hot Springs and Revelstoke have cross-country rides aplenty. Almost every Kootenay Rockies town offers a variety of single-track. Don’t feel like climbing? Check out the three bike parks in the Kootenay Rockies.
Cyclists can tackle the Golden Triangle, a week-long adventure looping through Banff, Yoho and Kootenay national parks. For a slower pace, bike the abandoned rail beds of the Great Northern and Slocan Valley rail trails. Road touring is another endurance-testing option.
