11. Cypress Hills Mountain Bike Trails

Starting the descent and hitting the drop offs, laying down some crazy lines on the “Last Grizzly”, getting to grips with some cross country adventure through montane forest high above the prairies…this is Mountain Biking in the Cypress Hills.


Over 50km of trails with 240 meters of elevation gain from Elkwater you can bet there will be some challenging moments to get the rewards of the downhill trails. If this is not your thing then take an easier trail and explore some of the viewpoints like Horseshoe Canyon which looks out over the vast prairies or down to Montana Sweetgrass hills from “Head of the Mountain”.

An early start and late close to the biking season means you can get on the trails typically from May to October.
