    Terrace Mountain and Steinhoe Ridge Trails

    Located right in the city of Terrace, you can access this amazing trails network through three trailheads. You can choose your own adventure: easy-peasy flow or gruelling, long burning grinds:

    • Johnstone/Walsh entrance to Flathead (BLACK)

    • Kitselas Road entrance to TW (BLUE)

    • Spring Creek Road entrance to Steinhoe Ridge (GREEN/BLUE)

     

    The Terrace Mountain/Steinhoe Ridge network offers a broad range of trail experiences from everything for the easy green XC lover to the technical climbing masochist and everything in between. New additions in the last few years are two machine-built flow trails loaded with rock slabs, jumps, drop and gap features (Shangri-La & Downtube). On Terrace Montain, you’ll work hard for your fun, but it will be worth the effort and a cold or hot beverage is just a bike ride away as you can finish your ride in the heart of downtown. On Steinhoe Ridge, expect to find everything from meandering ascents and flowing moss-lined single-track loops to technical climabs and rock slab descents. Don’t forget to take a moment between exhilarating descents to stop and take in the amazing vistas along the way.

    Copper Mountain Trails

    From the round about (junction of Hwy 37 and Hwy 16) east of Terrace, drive east on Hwy 16 for about ½ km, then turn right on Old Lakelse Lake Road. Drive through the residential area and beyond for 5.8 km and turn left onto the Thornhill Mountain road. The turn off is less than a kilometre past the Thornhill Landfill.

     

    This riding area offers an authentic “old school” shuttling DH experience. A little rougher around the edges, this network offers the best of old school tech meets new school flow. With the ability to hot lap the mountain, you’ll get a chance to sample the wide array of DH tech this network has to offer. By your fourth lap, you’ll have all the good lines dialled.

TMXA is a facility featuring an outdoor style motocross track and a novice/kids track near the Terrace Airport on Hwy 37 South. TMXA also features 60km of world class single track through moss carpeted pine forest. Wed nights, Saturday & Sunday afternoons are the most popular riding days and we welcome anyone out to watch for free. Riders must be members.

The  HuB project will add a brand new recreation opportunity to the existing Terrace Mountain/Steinhoe Ridge trail network. Trail network advancements over the past ten years have developed mountain biking into one of the most popular recreational activities in Terrace. Our region has become a destination for world-class mountain bike tourism events, and having access to diverse mountain bike experiences turns many tourists into new residents. Continued development and improvement on the existing trail network with the HuB project has several benefits. As of Fall 2019, we are at 30% of our fundraising goal. You can now donate directly to the project to help us start breaking ground in Spring 2020.
