Mountain Biking in Smithers, BC, Canada

It's a two wheeled revolution!

The town of Smithers lies on Highway 16 in the beautiful Bulkley Valley of Northwestern BC. The valley is prime mountain biking country surrounded by forested hillsides, stunning alpine meadows and rugged mountain peaks.

We’ve been riding here for years on everything from wide open pathways to historical mining roads, alpine singletrack, and steep, technical freeride trails…but we only recently got ourselves organized. In the winter of 2009 the Smithers Mountain Bike Association was born. Since then, we’ve been hard at work upgrading our existing infrastructure and building new trails.

Mountain biking in Smithers is in the midst of a revolution and there’s no stopping us now!
