      Changing forest habitats, rolling hills and breathtaking viewscapes makes trail riding in Prince Albert National Park a thrill. From easy rides on smooth trails to more technical rides over rocks, roots and steep hills, the park offers a mountain biking experience that will entertain both novice and advanced riders.

      Pack panniers for an unforgettable camping experience. Why not combine a mountain bike adventure with a backcountry camping experience. The Grey Owl and Elk trails both offer great riding and camping facilities.

      Check the Visitor Centre for current information on trail conditions, weather forecasts and hazards. If planning on staying overnight in the backcountry, a Park Use Permit is required.

      Mountain biking is allowed on all designated trails however the following are recommended;

      Recommended trails:

      Spruce River Highlands Trail - 8.5 km
      Elk Trail - 13 km to 15 km (one way)
      Freight Tait Springs Trail - 2 km (one way)
      Hunters Lake Trail - 12 km (one way)
      Valley View Trail Network - 28.7 km
      Grey Owl Trail - 19.3 km (one way)
      Red Deer Trail Network - 19 km
      Fisher Trail - 6.3 km
      To reduce the impact on wildlife, the environment and other visitors, follow proper trail etiquette.

      Trail cycling code of ethics
      Stay on the trail. Riding around mud holes damages trailside vegetation.
      Treat other trail users with courtesy, especially on downhill stretches. Slow down when approaching blind spots.
      Use a bell or call out to alert other users and wildlife.
      Choose a trail that matches each rider’s abilities. Park staff or staff at bike shops can help suggest a suitable trail.
      Use bear bells on bikes and make noise when biking through shrubby areas or approaching corners. Review bear safety information before your trip.
      During wildlife encounters on the trail, stop and wait for the animals to move away.
      Dogs must be kept on a leash at all times. This is often awkward and uncomfortable for both the rider and animal. Consider leaving pets at home or with friends.
      Horses have the right of way. In encounters with horse parties, dismount and stand a few feet off the trail (preferably on the downhill side) until the party has passed. When approaching from behind, stay a few metres back to avoid being kicked. Let horse riders know someone is nearby and wait for their instructions before passing.
      Bicycles can take you further into the backcountry than you can walk in a day. You are responsible for your own safety and be prepared to make your own repairs.
      Don't litter! If you pack it in, please pack it out.
      Contact the Visitor Centre staff for up-to-date reports or to learn more about visitor safety.
