      Hinton is a town of approximately 10,000 just East of the Jasper National Park boundary and 3 hours West of Edmonton. Local trails are overseen by the incredible volunteers of the Hinton Mountain Bike Association featuring the Hinton Bike Park and the Jacks and Happy Creek Trail systems. There are 3 brand new trails within the last year (Stinger, Vigilante and Ranger). Many other trails exist outside of the HMBA realm but they are unsanctioned unless specified (such as Alberta Parks). Old School rider's remember Hinton as a freeride paradise, being outside of the National Parks where TTF's and gnarly downhills could be built. Many of these original trails such as Animal Crackers are either destroyed or decommissioned with few people attempting to rebuild them. With the building of the Hinton Bike Park as a progression based skills area, renegade building is pretty much useless. The Hinton Nordic Centre area has a few incredibly built trails that have been used in Provincial races and these too are unsanctioned. Everything in Hinton is ride at your own risk, this includes navigation. When in doubt pick up a 2014 trail map at the Hinton Government Centre, Hinton Info Centre or Vicious Cycle. Visit www.bikehinton.com or visit their Facebook page. Feel free to drop a line and ask for a ride guide. Happy Trails!
