Hinton, Alberta

Hinton Mountain Bike Association.  Our goal is to develop, maintain and promote the best possible mountain biking opportunities around the Hinton area, while ensuring responsible and safe practices in environmental conservation, trail construction, trail maintenance and riding.



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"

Trail Etiquette 

  • Respect other trail users, pass with care and yield to pedestrians 
  • Leave no trace and pack out any litter
  • Respect wildlife
  • All terrain vehicles (ATVs) and motor bikes are not permitted on singletrack trails
  • Stay on existing trails
  • Dogs are permitted on trails but should be kept under control
  • Avoid muddy trails to prevent trail widening and erosion
  • Respect private land > Ask permission, leave gates as they are found


Jack's Trails now "Unsanctioned"

On May 15, 2018, the HMBA Board or Directors had to make the decision to downgrade the Jacks Trail System to "Unsanctioned".  This means that the trail is no longer maintained by the Hinton Mountain Bike Association.  Riders ride at their own risk!

In early Spring of 2018, extensive clearing occurred in the lower areas of the trail system which ultimately erased and/or damaged the trails.  The area is also slated for future development.  The Board decided that it will focus on the Hinton Bike Park and Happy Creek Trail System moving forward.

Off Highway Vehicles

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.


Unapproved Features

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 with any questions or suggestions on how to improve mountain biking in Hinton.
