The Big Whiteshell Mountain Bike Trail is 9km return distance. It is fairly easy going, not to hilly or technical and is an in and out the same way type of trail. The trail goes over granite rock ridges and gravel. The trail starts at the parking lot on hwy 309 just before the turn off to Big whiteshell lake south shore. The trail gradually goes up hill for about 500 meters over the granite rock ridges and though some wet spots. About halfway to Big Whiteshell lake there is a steep hill. After the steep hill there is no rock ridges or tall trees, mainly just spruce trees that are around 8 feet tall and gravel trails because of the windstorm in 2007.
There is a beaver dam blocking the bike trail at the creek just past the steep hill (October 2016). There is an old broken bridge that used to span the creek but it is laying in the bush. After the creek crossing the bike trail follows the snomobile trail on gravel and then turns off the snowmobile trail and goes to the lake. The trail ends in one of the bays on the lake by the castaway cabins. The trail needs more signage where the trees got knocked down from the windstorm in 2007. Over all it is a great trail and you can do a loop by turning right at the 4 way just before the lake and head down the gravel cabin roads.
From Winnipeg head North down Hwy 9 towards Lockport, then turn East down Hwy 44 towards Beausejour for 33km. Then turn south for 1.7km down Hwy 302/44. Turn East down Hwy 44 for 31km. Turn North down Hwy 11 for 4.9km towards La Du Bonnet. Turn East down Hwy 307 towards Seven Sisters for 55km. Turn North Down Hwy 309 towards Big Whiteshell Lake for 9.8km.
