Mountain biking

The trails are geared to mountain bikers of all abilities with steep, rooty hills for advanced riders, flowy singletrack for intermediate, and double track for beginners.

We also have approximately 10km of adaptive trails for aMTB.

If you are a beginner mountain biker or looking to improve your skills riding a trail network, we offer lessons most day of the week throughout summer.

Trail running

Endless trails and breathtaking views- what more could a runner want?! Check out the Kootenay Krusher loop on the south network, or meander your way along the clifftops on Chamois Whammy on the north network.

Check out our rust buster Crazy Soles Nipika Trail Run on the last weekend of May with distances from 2.5km – 25km.


There are plenty of options for day hikes on the Nipika / Cross River Canyon Rec Site trails, with spectacular lookouts and mountain and river views.

We are happy to offer a guided Interpretive Day Hike on these trails if you aren’t comfortable going alone or want to hear more about the land and the animals. We also offer a Guided Alpine Hike where we take you up into the alpine on stunning trails in the backcountry.
