      Banff National Park features some of Canada’s most scenic roadways and trails, making it an exciting destination to explore on two wheels. Rides here will take you through beautiful sub-alpine forest, next to sparkling waters of glacier-fed lakes and under Banff’s most iconic peaks.

      The mountain biking season in Banff National Park typically spans from May to October. Weather in the mountains is unpredictable even in summer, so be prepared with extra layers. Trail conditions can change at a moment’s notice due to snowfall, snowmelt and mud.
