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.

MOUNTAIN BIKING 

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.  

You like Hiking? There are good news for you

One of the greatest aspects of hiking around Smithers is the CLOSE PROXIMITY to town of so many trails. Many hikes start only a 15-minute drive from downtown. In addition, hikers will feel as if you have the MOUNTAINS TO YOURSELVES, even during peak hiking season in late summer, because of the massive scope of PRISTINE NATURE in the area and the small population. The Bulkley Valley Backpackers website (https://www.bvbackpackers.ca) has a schedule of weekly guided hikes and several great maps for hiking in the area, easily loaded onto phones.
