      Trowbridge Forest & Kinsmen Park Trail Head – Trowbridge Forest consists of approximately 18km of mostly double-track multi-use trails with small sections of single-track trails spread throughout. The area follows the bank of the Current River along a series of rapids. The forest is dominated by the single large mesa and many of the trails in the area either climb or descend the slopes. All of the trails are accessible from the parking lot at the entrance to Trowbridge Falls Campground and Kinsmen Park on Copenhagen Rd. Make sure to check out the views of the iconic Trowbridge Falls from the foot bridge into the trails.

      Shuniah Mines – The bulk of purpose build mountain bike single-track trails are found in the area know as Shuniah Mines. Approximately 13km of trail winds it’s way through the old silver mining grounds taking full advantage of the unique topography of tailing piles, rock features and a series of small ridge lines. Be on the lookout for such iconic trails as Grand Chasm (make sure to watch for all the optional features!), Dagobah, Doctors and the new downhill progressive flow line; Hill Top Trail. The area is best known for natural, hand carved tread with plenty of rocks and roots. For those looking to take full advantage of the rugged boreal forest landscape make sure to check out Snakes & Ladders or The Otherside.

      In recent years many of the trails in the area have seen an upgrade to newer trail standards, improving both the flow and speed of the trails. Die hard locals need not worry, the soul of what makes Shuniah Mines mountain biking unique still remains.

      Shuniah Mines can be accessed from the parking lot at Kinsman Park via ‘Hydro Hill’ to the south or the Adventure Trail to the north.
