Accessing your activity level and being honest about the level of risk you are willing to take is essential. Trying to keep up with a more experienced group can leave you in a pickle if you are not careful. Everyone had to start somewhere. There is no shame in taking the low road if you are not up for jumps and tremendous air. Some of the most popular mountain bike trails in Revelstoke are:

Martha Creek Trail & Sale Mountain: Transition from steep lines to open alpine and end up in the interior rain forest.

Mount Revelstoke National Park: Check out the East side of the valley and take in the 2km and 5km trail loops with a paved climb located behind the Railway Museum.

Blanket Creek: Take your challenges to an entirely different level and try your skills at riding rock slabs for a memorable day.

Mt. Mackenzie & Revelstoke Mountain Resort: Intermediate and advanced trails for the entire family to enjoy.

Keystone: Experience the mountains and breathe in all of the fresh air you can handle. Take the route to the cabin and back or make a complete day of it and keep on riding!

Mt. Macpherson: If you prefer to explore the Monashee Mountains up close and personal, this is your chance! Simply take your pick from Begbie Falls, Griffith Creek, Mt. Macpherson or Flowdown parking lots and prepare to take some timeless photos along the way.

Stay Hydrated & Sun Smart

Always tell someone where you are heading off to ride and what time you are expected back. This is important for any activity in the backwoods. Pack adequate provisions and gear in the event something goes awry. Maps are essential in case your cell phone coverage becomes compromised or your battery dies. Water, protein bars, nuts and dried fruit are all easy to take along with careful planning. Matches a headlamp and or a flashlight are wise. Sunscreen, hats, and sunglasses are a must. Beware of bears and bugs! If you have a SPOT Satellite Messenger locater, even better!
