Legendary for it's alpine backcountry access, Revelstoke offers a mountain biking experience that changes with the seasons. From it's location on banks of the mighty Columbia River, Revelstoke has two entire mountain ranges to use for a playground. Spring and early summer offer the trails of the Inland Rainforest with tacky dirt, big trees, and an otherworldly sea of green.
As the summer heat pushes the snow back to the summits, the trails of Revelstoke climb upward to an entirely different type of riding, and the high mountain jewels of the area are revealed. Alpine adventure abounds in both the Monashee and Selkirk mountain ranges, whether you are looking for shuttle accessed downhill riding, a cross country tour, or just pedaling to see what's on the other side of that mountain.
Revelstoke is home to some of the best recreation opportunities in the world. Hiking, biking, climbing, paragliding, and water sports complement a variety of museums, art galleries, shops, and services. After a long day in the saddle, enjoy great eats at one of the many restaurants in town, and choose a comfortable place to stay in our variety of accommodation options.

Frisby Ridge alpine Trail. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rSstKjUXd-A
Perhaps the most accessible alpine mountain bike trail in BC, the new Frisby Ridge Trail offers a perfect introduction to the high elevation adventure Revelstoke has to offer. Starting at an elevation of 1330m, this trail climbs gently but steadily for 12km before descending to a sub-alpine lake. The views along Frisby Ridge are nothing short of spectacular and there are many opportunities to stop for pictures and a rest. Once you've turned yourself around the descent back to the parking lot is a fast and flowy piece of heaven. Remember, uphill riders have the right of way so use caution when approaching the many blind corners. It is important to note that there is no water between the trailhead and the lake so riders should prepare accordingly.
Access: From Revelstoke head west on Highway #1, at the Highway #23 junction (traffic lights here), turn right (north) onto Westside Road. Drive for about 8km to a point where it turns into an odd 4 way junction leading off onto gravel logging roads. To this point, don’t be fooled by the Frisby Ridge Snowmobile signs, some point the right way, some don’t! Turn left on the Frisby Ridge Road (signed as such), and there is also a tall cedar post with a small blue sign indicating “Rec Trail” with an arrow and bike symbol. All subsequent junctions are signed similarly, and will lead you 9km up the gravel road to the parking area (trailhead kiosk here). The access is 2 wheel drive accessible, but we recommend a vehicle with some clearance. Cycling from town to the trailhead adds about 2 hours and 800m of climbing.
Distance Information: 12.9km one way
Elevation Information: 1330m (parking lot) to 2030m (high point)
Rating: intermediate XC
This great downhill trail, accessed from the same logging road as the new Frisby Ridge XC trail, is one of the classic DH trails in the area. With great cliffside views of the Jordan River below (careful) and steep terrain that will have you shaking out your arms more than a few times on the descent, this trail offers up a downhill experience that will have you returning lap after lap trying to memorize each curve, berm or steep roll. Some fall maintenance and a few well placed reroutes, an improvement in flow, sightlines and drainage will make the experience on this trail even better for the upcoming season. Connect this trail after riding the new Frisby Ridge XC trail to make en epic ride that will give you mix of every kind of riding you may be looking for. A minimum of an all-mountain bike is advised for this trail.
Elevation Information: 1100m to 600m

The Keystone Standard Basin trail sets the standard for epic alpine rides. Only 2km of technical climbing from the parking lot and you burst into the alpine, with kilometers of buff singletrack snaking across the basin before you.

After several kilometers of fast singletrack and a superb climb through numerous avalanche paths you'll be treated to an eye watering descent to a sub-alpine lake.
