Terrain Types

The popular mountain biking trails in Vernon offer an array of terrain types that suit a range of abilities. You can expect everything from wide gravel paths to steep and rocky trails. For beginner riders it is best to begin with less strenuous paths such as Kalamalka Lake Park or Grey Canal Network as they offer beautiful views without too much effort required. As you progress through the levels you may want to test your skills and tackle more technical trails like Fintry Provincial Park or Ellison Lake Area which require greater physical control.

What to Bring on Your Trip

When venturing out onto any trail it is important to be prepared with proper clothing and equipment. Closed toe shoes are a must have along with a water bottle full so you can stay well hydrated during your journey. Be sure to also bring along a helmet, gloves, chain lube, and basic bike tools just in case something were to go wrong mid-ride.

Weather Considerations

It’s always wise to check the weather forecast before leaving for your ride; if rain is expected then be sure to dress appropriately (waterproof jackets/pants). Also check for any wind advisories as strong gusts can make riding certain trails dangerous due to their elevation gain/loss or exposure on ridgelines.
