Mountain biking has exploded in recent years, and for good reason! It's fast, it's fun, and it's a great way to see the mountains. Canmore and Kananaskis have world-class trails right in the backyard, and they are just begging to be explored.
Visit the Canmore Nordic Centre Provincial Park for maintained trails from mild to wild. The trail network has over 100 km/62 mi of trails including wide dirt roads for leisurely rides to scenic lookouts, narrower cross-country ski trails for more challenge on rolling terrain, and single-track trails for advanced riders.
Looking to bike in the backcountry? Stay at Mount Engadine Lodge, a vehicle-accessible backcountry lodge, for early access to some of the best biking in Kananaskis. Start your day with a hearty breakfast before hitting the trails. Return to the lodge for it's famed Afternoon Tea and enjoy their delicious dinner before tucking in for the night and getting ready to do it all again tomorrow.
Don't have the right gear? Rent it for a no-stress, affordable alternative. Trail Sports rents and services mountain bikes for use on the trails at the Canmore Nordic Centre. They also offer guided rides and lessons to up your game.
Bike rentals are also available at Kananaskis Outfitters. Hire a bike coach to level up your skills and suggest the best trails for your abilities. In Canmore, rent mountain bikes and accessories at Rebound Cycle.
While enjoying your time on the trials, remember to yield to other trail users, such as hikers and horseback riders, so everyone can enjoy their time in the mountains.
