Explore Smithers by bike! Surrounded by mountains, we have legendary DOWNHILL and CROSS-COUNTRY trails and scenic COUNTRY BACKROADS for bikes that can handle some hard-packed dirt.
This is prime mountain-biking country! The Smithers Mountain Bike Association
manages trail networks on Hudson Bay Mountain suitable for all abilities: the BLUFF
RECREATION AREA has several access points, including one downtown.
This will take you into the BOARDWALK TRAILS, aptly named with hundreds of
meters of boardwalks. There’s more to be had on the PIPER DOWN RECREATION
TRAILS and PTARMIGAN TRAILS. Across the valley, the BABINE MOUNTAINS
PROVINCIAL PARK has trails in simply spectacular settings: SILVERKING BASIN
is home to the JOE L’ORSA Cabin where you can enjoy a short break or overnight
stay; for the adventurous, ride the CRONIN PASS TRAIL which traverses the Park,
past remnants of old mines, over Hyland Pass, and down through Silver King Basin
into Driftwood Canyon. It requires some effort, but it is worth it! Closer to town you
can also explore the trails at CALL LAKE PROVINICIAL PARK.
