The Test of Humanity trail is the main feature of an annual race and fundraiser of the same name. The Test of Humanity supports Canadian Humanitarian aid and the Okanagan Food Bank. This 10k loop features thousands of volunteer hours that carefully shaped it into one epic track. Lots of flow-filled berms, pumpable rollers, and high speeds take the cake on the downhill sections while the climbs are accented by scenic vistas. Varied uphill and downhill sections keep riders fresh and wanting more. The Test of Humanity trail is appropriate for newer to advanced riders.

Access Info

Access from Morrow Ave, on the right side of the road when going uphill before reaching Summergate Drive.

       Fun, fast and flow-y. My first ride in the Summerland area and this trail was a pleasant surprise. Good views and lots of grade changes to keep you working. Kudos to those who did the work on this.

       Rode Test of Humanity/T2 (new section) today. New section is great. Amazing amount of work has gone into this purpose-built trail. Such fun to ride and worth the trip to Summerland. A few wet sections and little snow in the decent berms on the back section, otherwise in great shape for late March after a longer-than-normal Okanagan winter. Not often we get to ride the upper sections of the berms. They are usually soft and dusty, but good, sticky mud right now.

       Best ridden clockwise. Look for the small orange arrows on the trees.

      Beautiful trail. Fast and swoopy. Great views.

       Love this ride. Mostly XC with a few flowy and bermed downhill sections. Vista views spectacular. A lot of work has gone into this trail and it shows. Watch for orange direction markers on trees.

       Took my first ever ride in this area. Lots of smaller break off trails and it wasn't that busy, really gave me a chance to just learn how to ride. Good open areas to practice too
