Long Distance Mountain Biking Routes

Many of British Columbia's backcountry mountain biking terrain follows the historical footprints of the forest, railroad and mining industries. It was the BC pioneers who first laid down the ground work for some very good long distance mountain biking routes. Routes like the KVR ( Kettle Valley Rail Trail) and it's many trestles, ( Myra CanyonOthello Quintette Tunnels and Rock Oven Park to name a few.) in the Okanagan Valley; the Suncoaster Trail on the Sunshine Coast; the Christina Crest Trail near Rossland in the Kootenays and of course the Trans Canada Trail crisscrossing BC.

Nature Trail Mountain Biking

Throughout British Columbia there are some awesome backcountry trail networks where nature creates the routes. Trails which cut through forests, tumble over tree roots, navigate around boulders, cross creeks, drop off cliffs and race downhill. Some of the better backcountry mountain biking trail networks include the Mount MacPherson Trail Network in Revelstoke in the Kootenay region; Cumberland in the Comox Valley on Vancouver Island; the Desous Mountain and Fox Mountain Trails in Williams Lake in the Cariboo-Chilcotin-Coast region and the Duck Lake area trails near Powell River on the Sunshine Coast.
