Biking

Mountain bikers are naturally drawn to Cranbrook.

Sunny days and mild winters mean that this region of the Kootenay Rockies is one of the first to see the trails clear of snow come spring. Sitting in the Rocky Mountain Trench between the Purcell and Rocky mountains, this is an ideal mountain bike destination with several distinct trail areas situated close to the city with quiet singletrack trails to black-diamond descents.

Check out Trailforks to explore your riding options in and around Cranbrook.

Top Tip! The Wildhorse Cycling Club maintains and builds trails across the region and specifically within the Community Forest, a mecca for mountain bike enthusiasts. Book a stay on the east end of town and have easier biking access to this amazing biking destination. Join Wildhorse for one of their community rides - they have them weekly!
