The mountain bike trails in Terrace used to be pretty gnarly. Most were for experts only. In the last few years, however, the local biking community has worked hard to create a range of more accessible, beginner-to-intermediate trails. Many of the trails have also been connected to create a network of fun loops. The result is hours of fun, and kilometres of challenging terrain to explore on two wheels.
Terrace has two main mountain biking areas.
The Terrace Mountain Trail network is quite spread out. Trails are a combination of cross-country, downhill, and all-mountain. Besides the fun ups and downs and technical features these trails offer, they pass through some of the most beautiful forests and offer fabulous views of the city of Terrace, surrounding mountains, and the Skeena River.
Trails at Copper Mountain will appeal more to intermediate and expert downhill riders. Some bikers ride up, but most shuttle up the logging road to the midway point or all the way to the top, then ride down.
Hidden Acres Farm & Treehouse Resort is located in between both trail systems, making it the perfect Terrace mountain biking base camp. The property has lots of room to store your muddy bikes, and your muddy gear will hang nicely from the cabins’ porches.
