Family biking in grasslands (Picture BC photo)
The terrain around Princeton is ideal for mountain biking. Riders can take it easy on rail trails that skirt the Tulameen and Similkameen rivers near town or head out across the rolling grasslands and pedal to high country lakes.
Winter cross-country ski trails provide lots of options for rides through forested highlands while historic pack trails leading into the Cascade Mountains demand greater fitness and stamina.
Along with the different levels of challenge these trails deliver plenty of worthwhile sights like railway tunnels, First Nations pictographs, vermillion coloured cliffs and great views of the valley and sawtooth peaks of the Cascades.
Trails in the Princeton area also attract hikers and horseback riders.
