Trail Report

bikepirate’s guide to mountain bike trail conditions. We do our best to keep the trail conditions report up-to-date for all trails listed on our site, but there is only a few of us and we cannot be everywhere at all times… maybe one day. Therefore, if you know of a trail condition update that we don’t, send us an email, tweet @bikepiratepage or post on our Facebook page. Please be sure to let us know of any deadfall/trees down on the trail, so that we can email the appropriate folks responsible for helping remove them.

The trail report table is automatically sorted by date. Trails recently updated with a trail report appear at the top of the list. TO QUICKLY SEARCH BY AREA, TYPE “BANFF” FOR EXAMPLE IN THE SEARCH BOX ABOVE THE TABLE, THIS WILL CAUSE THE TABLE TO DISPLAY ONLY BANFF TRAILS. The function works for all areas. You can also sort columns, by clicking on the headings.

Bobcat: West BraggWest Bragg Creek, AB

OPEN

Ended up riding this twice today, once downhill all the way to the Tom Snow trail head and realized I took a wrong turn to head over to snagmore, so back up I went. Lots of cows on the lower portion of the trail (Ridgeback?). But what a fun decent that was, with all the switchbacks and places you can catch a bit of air it was a hoot. Nearly ran into one of the cows that happened to be in the middle of the trail when I came around a corner a bit to fast. Watch it on the lower section, they apparently like to graze in the middle of the trail. ~ Aaen2014-08-30
Boundary Ridge: West BraggWest Bragg Creek, AB

OPEN

Rode this today, trial is in decent shape, wet in a few spots although drying out. Made the climb up in a few spots a bit tricky with tire spinning and some of the corners a bit greasy. ~ Aaen2014-08-30
Disconnect: West BraggWest Bragg Creek, AB

OPEN

The top half needs some time to dry up - some recent equestrian use while wet and soft has left things a little messy. Give it a week. ~ Russ2014-08-30
Snagmore: West BraggWest Bragg Creek, AB

OPEN

Great trail with some good climbs and some fast descents. Too bad it was n't a bit more technical on the descent side of things though with some ramps/jumps it would make a great spot for it. Bit muddy today from the rains from yesterday, which made some roots and areas in the shade a bit greasy. ~ Aaen2014-08-30
Ranger Summit: West BraggWest Bragg Creek, AB

OPEN

Nice trail, would be fun to rip down it I think, used this as my starter on a loop with Bocat, snag more and Boundary. The third section I think is where the climb up the hill really starts with all the switchbacks. At the start of the trail they are doing road maintenance with heavy equipment so becareful for excavators, and rollers. ~ Aaen2014-08-30

Jewell PassKananaskis, AB

OPEN

Rode it the evening of the 28th. Actual trail up and down is fine, a bit slick after the rain but still good. However the contractor has been running trucks on the service road so once you finish jewel pass the return alongside barrier lake is a bit of a mud bath and not fun at all. If you don't like cleaning your bike worth avoiding until it dries out. ~ Mark S.2014-08-29

Jumpingpound RidgeKananaskis, AB

OPEN

We rode jumping pound to cox hill last saturday. The road is still close to public traffic. We took the 14.5km entrance. Overall the trail has a couple eroded spots from the flood and rain the worst part being the final decent from jumping pound to cox one corner that has to be walked but everything else is rideable. It has rained for the last week so when we went the trail was very tacky and and there was some water running down the trail in the middle of the cox hill decent. The top of cox hill was great do to the rain so the loose corners actually were sticky. ~ Matt2014-08-28
Rocky Mountain Legacy TrailBanff, AB

OPEN

Dry. This fantastic ride is the perfect trail to take the family on over the long weekend. Make sure to bring warmer clothes with the forecasted cool temperatures and possibly a rain jacket. Hopefully the forecast keeps to sun as it suggest and the bit of rain passes.2014-08-28

I was on horseshoe loop Monday, which was mainly tacky but had some standing water still in the marshy low lying areas. I suspect there is still a bit of water there since it hasn't been super warm. ~ Lyns2014-08-28

OPEN

Goat Creek is in excellent shape but the river crossing across the Spray River is running high. The Spray bridge is still under construction and river still has to be waded (above knees last week and helped a family with kids struggling with river crossing). Steep bank for beginners as well. ~ Eric2014-08-28

Running great. Tacky, with just a few slick spots along some of the wooden features, but these should dry quick now with the sun.2014-08-28

Expect to herd cattle below the Diamond T intersection!. Oh, and keep your mouth closed for the same reason. We cleared a bunch of blowdown, the trail is dry as a bone and running well. Hey, at least the cows aren't on Bobcat again! ~ Russ2014-08-26
Family GuyMoose Mountain, AB

OPEN

The trail is in great shape. We ran into a stubborn moose and her babies at the power lines, and a brown bear before the last bridge. No issues, just keep your eyes open and remember to make noise! The creek was a non issue, hardly any water at all. ~ Russ2014-08-26

Elbow LoopKananaskis, AB

OPEN

Just rode the Elbow loop. Along the little Elbow River to Tombstone pass, road in good shape overall. A couple of washouts, only one creek crossing. Down to Big Elbow: quite a significant washout. Single track quite sweet. From there, it becomes a bit adventurous. Lots of washouts, 3-4 creek crossing. Route finding relatively easy though. Water never more than knee deep. Took me less than 5H at an easyish pace. Scenery spectacular. Would redo that anytime! ~ Alexis

Ride Don't SlideWhistler, BC

OPEN

One hell of a run. The trail is dry, extremely dry and loose, making it that much more challenging to descend. It's seen better days and could use some love. Still a great challenge for those who love old school riding.2014-08-24

Crazy TrainWhistler, BC

Dry and loose. The trail needs a little love after the 2014 Enduro passed down it last week. Expect a few blown corners and rutted out berms. Still plenty of fun for those that enjoy this type of trail.2014-08-19
Wizard Burial GroundWhistler, BC

Open and running nice and tacky.2014-08-18
Seven SummitsRossland, BC

OPEN

The trail is in perfect shape. A few days of light rain has tacked things up. On the Dewdney decent, pay attention to the trail where it switchbacks down the power line cutline - BC Hydro was out with a big mulching machine clearing brush and trees, completely covering a few sections of the trail. ~ Russ2014-08-17
Word of MouthSquamish, BC

Tacky and a little slick on a few roots, but otherwise good to go and fun to ride.2014-08-15

Open and good to go. Still a bit dry and dusty, even with the bit of rain in the last few days.2014-08-14
Frisby Ridge TrailRevelstoke, BC

OPEN

Frisby Ridge is in great shape. Flowers are out and trail is perfect, but beware of the bird size flies and bugs. The road up was BRUTAL. 4x4 would serve you well just in case someone was thinking of taking a normal car up there. We did it in a Jeep and it was still rock and rolling! Yikes! ~ Dale

Rode the trail yesterday from Three Forks to Denver Siding. Trail is in great shape. Thanks to all the volunteers who keep it maintained! ~ Jay2014-08-13
Powderface Creek to Prairie CreekKananaskis, AB

OPEN

overall it was okay of a ride. like Russ had mention below, expect lots of hiking pass the prairie link turnoff. Kind of seems like you are lost heading no where in the SW section of the loop. The down hill part was fun. ~ Eugene

Generally in good shape. Expect some walking about half way up the steeper climbs 1-2km past the Prairie Link turnoff. There is some pretty good washout on the steep climbs that may be rideable if you have crazy skills. From the top down to the Powderface and Prairie Creek it is fine, and Prairie creek is its usual 'not bad' shape. ~ Russ
2014-08-13
Baldy PassKananaskis, AB

Just an FYI that Parks fixed the trench that had developed on the ride out to the road at the bottom of Baldy. Much safer than the chasm that was there earlier this year. ~ Kevin2014-08-13
Cascade TrailBanff, AB

OPEN

The Cascade River bridge at km 6 of the Cascade Trail is out for the summer. Crossing the river is only possible by fording the river. Otherwise the trail is dry and in good condition.2014-08-11
Jack the RipperPemberton, BC

OPEN

Me & my two buddies rode it yesterday. We all have full-on dh bikes, so the push up was a real slog. There were some points where we thought we couldn't go on because it was so hot. There was only one tree that was down blocking the trail. There were a few dislodged rocks, but aside from that no major issues. The two ladders on the side of the rock face are in good shape. The ski is still there directing riders to the right. After we finished, we all agreed that that was quite probably the last time we would ever ride that trail. It's just too exhausting. I would caution anyone thinking of riding it to be in top physical condition & bring more water than you think you'll need. It makes for a huge day.2014-08-11

GargamelWhistler, BC

OPEN

It's been very hot and dry in Whistler the past month and trails are running loose and dusty. Gargamel is no exception, and the trail is getting loose on the steep slans and down the rocky and rooty chutes. Ride this gnarly trail with caution.2014-08-08

Running dry and dusty, almost as tough to ride as when it's moist. 2014-08-07
Micro ClimateWhistler, BC

OPEN

Just like many of the trails currently in Whistler, Micro Climate could use a bit of rain to settled the dust and solidify the entrance which is super loose and sketchy. Beyond the entrance the trail is flowing really well and is a lot of fun to rip.2014-08-06

Trails are starting to run dry and dusty, but still loads of fun to be had out there. Just be careful on the loose dusty corners. Rode the new trail Tinder (connects Fred to Your Mom) built courtesy of Dream Wizards and BRT. The trail is an awesome new addition to the network, providing a sweet loop option. Fred and Your Mom, also running fantastic, but loose and dusty in most corners.2014-08-03

Lots of blowdown especially before junction with Baldy Pass, trail very eroded in some sections, lots of evidence of bear presence. Not recommended!

Emerald No Flow ZoneWhistler, BC

OPEN

Trails are running fantastic after two days of rain and the downpour we received last night and this am. The dirt is super tacky and the slabs were starting to dry out during my evening ride. Just becareful of the wet and slippery roots. The weekend is calling for hot temperatures, which will make for perfect riding conditions on the hero dirt! Shit Happens, Delineator and Big Kahuna are good to roll. Be carefull on Shit Happens, just northwest of the junction with Anal Intruder, as there are a few trees down across the trail.2014-07-24

Top of the WorldWhistler, BC

OPEN

Top of the World is in fantastic shape! The dirt up top the mountain is tacky and fast. A few soft spots near the end of the trail along the new bermed and switchbacking signletrack, but still in awesome shape. It's a completely different world up there. Once you get about halfway down the mountain the tacky dirt turns dusty and loose. Get while you can!2014-07-23
HighlineCanmore, AB

PARTIAL

There has been a bear closure issued for the power lines inbetween the Riders and West Connectors; affecting trail access. Pursuant to Section 81 of the Wildlife Act (RSA 2000 cw-10), access is forbidden to the powerline near the Peaks of Grassi subdivision in Canmore, near Quarry Lakes, due to an aggressive bear. More info can be found here. This bear closure on the powerline somewhat affects Highline access (so need to plan ahead for a loop on the roads, or shuttle with a vehicle at either end of trail for now, or do as an out and back). ~ Kerri2014-07-23

Golden (area update)Golden, BC

OPEN

Dusty and dry for sure, even more so than Pano! I hope we get some rain soon, aside from the poor trail conditions the wild fire risk is getting pretty extreme. Haze from more Northerly fires supposed to be really bad in Calgary and was even obscuring the view in Golden. ~ TrevorW2014-07-19

Beaver Lodge TrailsCampbell River, BC

OPEN

Visibility is an issue on many of the trails due to over growth, so slower speeds are recommended. The trail conditions are really nice and the riding is flowy and smooth. Pony trail was cleared out last week so there is good visibility from top to bottom and in a couple of the more open trails at the south end there are no visibility issues. Keep in mind that this time of year the Beav sees many types of trail users and lots of traffic, so ride with car and caution. ~ trail report by Swicked Cycles2014-07-11
Snowden Demonstration Forest TrailsCampbell River, BC

OPEN

The trail conditions are amazing. The dirt has just enough moisture to keep the dust down but rides nice and tacky, the rock bluffs resemble slick rock and the rooty and rocky sections allow you to ride with confidence. The only down side is the ferns…there is some limited visibility on some of the tighter trails, but the more we ride the better it gets, so don't hesitate and head for Snowden to put in some miles. ~ trail report by Swicked Cycles2014-07-11
Nelson (area update)Nelson, BC

OPEN

Heat wave means many trails are getting very loose but with 105 trails in the guide book (plus several new trails built since publication) there are still plenty of trails in fantastic condition.

Svoboda Trail SystemNelson, BC

OPEN

Many of the super steep gnarly trails are getting 'excessively dry' so there are better areas to hit up in and around Nelson at the moment (e.g. Smallwood or WH20 for XC/AM, North Shore for AM/DH). Within Svoboda area the 'blue' trails in the central area around Frog Jam climb would be your best bet. ~ TrevorW2014-07-11
Pumphouse TrailsCampbell River, BC

Dry and fast is what comes to mind. Right now we are getting great traction, fast and flowy trails and if you have been wondering if you will ever clean some of the rock bluff climbs, now is your chance, they're super tacky. ~ trail report by Swicked Cycles2014-07-11

Telephone Loop: West BraggWest Bragg Creek, AB

OPEN

Telephone was very reasonable from the north end of Long Distance to the junction with Disconnect - a few ride arounds here and there. But from the Disconnect junction to the parking lot it got muddier and muddier - no momentum for very long. I love to work on my bike as much as the next guy but the punishment your bike takes - mostly due to mud- to go through Telephone loop sometimes just isn't worth it. Better to take your lumps and climb Disconnect back up to Long Distance. ~ Trevor2014-07-07

Lots of recent equestrian traffic. Powderface is great. Prairie Link is ok with 10+ places you will likely dismount to get around the mud bogs. Prairie creek is the same, more dismounts than I wanted to count (and every 100m), really chewed up from horses. Anywhere rocky was good.. anywhere soft was pretty mucky. ~ Russ2014-07-02

Strange Brew: West BraggWest Bragg Creek, AB

OPEN

Strange Brew is good, but lower Boundary back to the parking lot was a brutal mud bog in the two spots I tried it. Turned back at first mud bog each time and rode back on the horsetrails instead - much better. Boundary is a mess due to people riding the mud and is going to take some time to dry out. ~ Rick2014-07-02

Jumpingpound Summit to Jumpingpound RidgeKananaskis, AB

OPEN

Rode Jumping Pound Ridge south to north starting at the summit trail. Previous post indicating some lingering snow in shaded areas was a bit understated. Still some significant drifts required post-holing on the way up and snow in the lee of the ridge required a creative detour at the top. As noted in previous posts, the bridge is out across Jumping Pound Creek at the north trail head. Your feet are going to get wet! ~ Michael
Note:Powderface Road closed; access is via Cox Hill but Bridge out over Jumpingpound Creek, or hiking/riding Powderface Road

Whole Lotta UpKananaskis, AB

OPEN

Rode Whole Lotta Up yesterday. As some had already posted, Quaite Valley is a little greasy, which is good for that lactic-acid build-up in them quads. Jewell downhill is in great condition. You have to love that trail. Stoney westward is fine. Need to ford one creek, so you'll get wet feet, otherwise it is pretty dry. And, no bear tracks this year ... Skogan pass up is -well - a whole lotta up. The track is very dry up to some 2 km before the pass itself. After that you'll have to go through a few small streams, but no need to get of the bike, and, 100% snow free!! The downhill to highway 1 is fast. Mind those horse riders coming up.... We did not do the Bow Corridor Link Trail. ~ Tim2014-06-23

Riverview TrailKananaskis, AB

OPEN

We did the Riverview Trail today in Kananaskis. We started from the west end and the trail was muddy but otherwise in good condition. Once we reached the level of the river though, the trail quickly deteriorated and would upgrade to advanced rather than intermediate in the current post-flood conditions. We had to ride around numerous trees across the trail, pick our way through washed out sections filled with debris, and navigate a much-changed trail that required hiking our bikes for large sections.

Bikers wanting to connect the Elbow or Sulphur Springs Trails with the Riverview Trail for a loop will want to avoid as much of the section by the river as possible by entering and exiting the trail at the far west end of the campground (E loop). The Paddy’s Flat Interpretive Trail should be avoided completely. ~ trail report by Family Adventures

Overnight SensationPemberton, BC

OPEN

Overnight Sensation is in great shape, but watch out for the four or five large trees down across the trail; all found on the first 1/3 of the trail. It's a bit of work to get to the trailhead for Overnight at the moment, as the 1km access road is still all covered in snow, but Overnight is completely snow free, tacky and dry. 2014-04-08

Mosquito Lake AreaPemberton, BC

OPEN

Mosquito Lake trails are drying out quick. Econoline is in great shape and the Mosquito Lake Road is now clear of snow and drying well. Old Fotch Road (access to Cream Puff, No Err and Meat Grinder) has still a week or so to go, with long sections of snow, ice and mud. It's melting quick, so shouldn't be long before Old Fotch is also clear. 2014-04-06

The entrance to Smell the Glove is still covered in snow. However, about 80 metres down the trail, as it turns into the flowy singletrack, the snow is all gone and the trail is running great. 2014-04-01
Grumpy GrousePemberton, BC

OPEN

Grumpy is open and good to ride. Watch out for dead fall along the trail. We cleared a few, but some downed trees still remain. The last section along the rock bluffs and down the loose scree, is particularly squirrely after the spring run off. There are loads of loose rocks and gravel on the slabs making it even more difficult to ride. Take care and walk if unsure. 2014-04-01
Dark ForestPemberton, BC

OPEN

The 1st part (top part) of Dark Forest is in decent shape overall, just a small stream running down a section of it as it nears the junction with Radio Tower and Crosstown Traffic. Should dry pretty quick with these warm temps. The 2nd section, down from Grumpy Grouse Moby Dick is a little rough. The middle of the 2nd section has now also been split in half by the new development and is closed off. You'll have to ride the dirt road left and back around to the tracks below. Watch for sections of trail being closed due to the work in the area. 2014-04-01
Blood, Sweat and FearPemberton, BC

OPEN

Blood, Sweat and Fear is running amazing. The dirt is tacky and the slabs are dry. This is probably some of the best conditions you'll experience on this trail before it gets too dry and dusty. Get it while it's primo.2014-03-31
Scruffy's BypassPemberton, BC

OPEN

One minor patch of snow on this trail, the rest is clear and slick. Lots of trees down, which we cut and cleared. Ride it to Rock and Roll and then turn left to exit down Strawberry Fields. Rock and Roll is not recommended. Still a foot of snow on it.2014-03-29

Cypress MountainNorth Shore, BC

Meat Sweats is running amazing right now. Super deep loam that fills your shoes with pine needles and fluffy goodness. The more established trails are dry and dusty with berms filled with dust and steeper sections running very fast and filling with ball bearing-like rocks. It's been raining, but only a bit and while it's started to hold down the dust a bit, it hasn't had a huge effect. ~ Lars2013-08-15
