The rolling foothills, forests, lakes, and front ranges of the Rockies near Hinton are a mountain biker’s paradise. The opportunity is awesome for an epic trail. The access to get into it is easy, the terrain’s phenomenal, it’s almost as if Mother Nature said, ‘come take a look boys’ - Jay Hoots"
Our trails are AWESOME! It does tend to rain, so we ask that people to please REFRAIN from riding when the trails and park are wet and muddy. It damages our beloved area and causes ruts. As much as we love maintaining our park and trails, we would much rather be out riding, than spending a weekend doing maintenance. Please walk through wet and muddy spots and not around them! We would like to keep our trails in their best original conditions without introducing trail creep.

There have been numerous incidents, and evidence, of OHV's using mountain bike trails in Hinton. Not only has there been trail damage, but also damage to our beautiful new signs which state 'No Motorized Vehicles'. If you encounter a vehicle on the trails that shouldn't be there, please write down the license plate number and report it to the RCMP upon completing your ride. And don't forget to educate the OHV riders that you know, about the hard work, volunteer hours, and dollars it takes to build and maintain these trails.
We love that people head out riding in the Park and on surrounding trails. And we realize that after a few years, some people feel that they have mastered what is out there and want to go bigger. However, building unapproved obstacles and jumps is prohibited and will result in them having to be removed. Let's save everyone the work and work together towards getting new obstacles and features approved prior to building them. We do love to hear you ideas and would love it if you want to send us your ideas to keep the park exciting. Feel free to contact us at email@example.com with any questions or suggestions on how to improve mountain biking in Hinton.
