Legendary riding, hero dirt, and 360 degree alpine views.
The Revelstoke mountain biking scene is legendary for the ease of alpine backcountry access, fun and flowy cross country mountain biking trails, and downhill mountain biking. Spring and early summer offer lower elevation rainforest trails with tacky dirt, big trees, and an otherworldly sea of green. Alpine mountain biking adventures abound in the Monashee and Selkirk mountain ranges; whether you’re looking for shuttle-accessed downhill mountain biking, a cross country biking tour, or an epic hike-a-bike.
In an effort to minimize invasive species we ask that you remove plants, animals and mud from shoes, gear, bikes, pets and vehicles, clean the gear before entering and leaving the recreation site, and stay on the designated trails.
Head to Mount Macpherson's Griffith Creek area where you can tackle the beginner loops and Rotary Skills Park. If you're young or young at heart, the Beaver Lodge Kids Park in Mount Revelstoke National Park is a great zone.
Intermediate mountain bikers will love Flowdown, a classic trail at Mount Macpherson. If you're here when the alpine is snow free, be sure to hit Frisby Ridge, an out and back cross country ride that takes you through stunning alpine. Revelstoke Mountain Resort's Fifty Six Twenty will knock your socks off.
Boulder Mountain is where it's at for downhill. Tackle steep loamers, packed flow trails, or session the Detention Centre, a jump zone. Most riders shuttle, but the road can be pedaled for more of a work out. For a cross country challenge, head north on Highway 23 to the Keystone trail. This backcountry ride is demanding but worth the burn.
