There are two trail networks as well as a Bike & Skate skills park within the city of Powell River. The Millennium Park area runs from Willingdon Beach Park up and around the Rec Complex, which is where the Bike Park is also located. The Penticton Street Maze is a tight network of trails located at the top of Penticton Street that provides some excellent year-round quick rides.
Suncoast Trails – A network of roaming XC trails south of town with main access points off of Duck Lake Road, or the top of McLean Road near SunCoast Cycles.
Duck Lake Trails – Predominately blue, mostly cross-country trails in gorgeous, lush coastal forest. While the area does not have a lot of elevation, it allows for long loops of fast, uninterrupted singletrack with short, punchy hills.
Mount Mahony Trails – A relatively new and popular Black and Blue level riding area that is one of the few places with the elevation for big descents. And big climbs. Civil Disobedience takes a bit of effort to get to, but it is the feature trail that runs from top to bottom, with a sweet set of black and blue gravity trails branching off and onto its lower third. Access is off of Inland Lake FSR.
Powell River Bike & Skate Park – The focus with the Powell River Bike and Skate Park was to create an action sports park that incorporated both bike and skate facilities in partnership with Spectrum Skateparks. This dynamic park assimilates a beginner pumptrack, the first ever poured in place concrete pumptrack in North America, slopestyle dirt jump trails, downhill flow trails, and a beginner flow line. Alpine Bike Parks also partnered with FlowForm Bike Ramps and developed two new features debuted in Powell River. Through community outreach Alpine prepared operations and management planning for city staff training and maintenance processes.
