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.

Rode 'em again today - nice and dry in most places with lots of great peeps on the trail. ~ Tariq2014-09-28
Lake MinnewankaBanff, AB

OPEN

Did a 50km loop yesterday. Trail was dry and fast, no hikers. After the cabin the trail was quite over grown in places so wear long pants. Some trees were also down. The first major rock section was hard to find the path and harder on the return. Other rock sections were well marked. Great ride. ~ DPB

Tunnel LoopBanff, AB

OPEN

Rode Tunnel Mountain/Toe/Coastline today in Banff. Trails were in great shape with just a few damp areas. There was a tree down across the trail on Coastline right near the berms. Comes up fast so keep your head up! Otherwise the fall colors are out so get out and enjoy! ~ Dale

Jumpingpound Ridge to Cox HillKananaskis, AB

OPEN

Did the loop from the parking lot. Sign says Powderface trail is closed, but gate is open and trucks and cars are using it. Pretty sure the 2 cars we saw weren't official. We rode the whole thing though. Very little water on the trail anywhere but this trail is always a workout. Amazing views as usual. Getting to the end of the season for this trail so skip out of work and go. ~ Rick2014-09-24
Southern Flow Loop: West BraggWest Bragg Creek, AB

OPEN

Yesterday morning I rode from West Bragg trailhead to Ranger summit, down Bobcat (which is an awesome trail) to Tom Snow and out to the Station Flats parking area. A quick trip up the highway (<1km) to Elbow and I took Snagmore and Boundary Ridge to get back to my car. Mostly dry except for the usual mud bogs on Tom Snow. Was a great long fall ride. ~ Julian2014-09-23
Strange Brew: West BraggWest Bragg Creek, AB

OPEN

Greasy and muddy on the bottom half from all the drainage on Sept 18th. ~ Jason2014-09-22
Quaite ValleyKananaskis, AB

OPEN

Quaite Creek has an enormous amount of downed trees between the campground and the junction with Jewell pass / Prairie view. We pretty well had to walk the whole way because it was one downed tree after another. ~ Kent2014-09-22
Horseshoe and G8Canmore, AB

OPEN

Rode Horseshoe / G8 Sunday morning. Fantastic conditions with tacky soil and dry rocks / roots. The bike barely looked like I’d been on it and didn’t need cleaning at all which makes a nice change from some recent mud baths. ~ Mark2014-09-22
Jewell PassKananaskis, AB

OPEN

Prairie view and Jewell pass are in almost perfect condition. There are a couple downed trees on the way up Prairie View, but they're easy to deal with. Not much of a hassle. ~ Kent2014-09-22
Prairie ViewKananaskis, AB

Razors EdgeKananaskis, AB

OPEN

Razors edge has 2 downed trees on the first section and about 5 downed trees in the loamy forest section just before you pop out to the final decent on the rock face above the #1 highway. Other than that the trail is clear and in very good condition. ~ Kent2014-09-22
Tunnel VisionWhistler, BC

OPEN

Tunnel Vision is in great shape. Some of the bridges at the start of the trail are getting a little rickety, so be careful riding over them. Otherwise enjoy this fun and fast descent. 2014-09-21
Top of the WorldWhistler, BC

CLOSED

Today was the last run for Top of the World for another season. Had another great ride down it. Sad to see the Peak zone closing for another year. Can't believe it's that time already, where has the summer gone.2014-09-21
Khyber PassWhistler, BC

OPEN

Awesome trail in fantastic shape! The old line is no longer worth doing, since they put in the new entrance just a few hundred metres down from the old one. It was put in for the World Enduro last year and it was awesome. Anyhow, this trail is pretty much now closed, as the Peak Zone in Whistler bike park closed today. Unless of course you pedal up to access it. 2014-09-21
Long Distance: West BraggWest Bragg Creek, AB

OPEN

Did Braggin Rights, Reconnect, Long Distance, Telephone Loop and up Disconnect, then back on Long Distance. Very little mud left, trails drying up nicely, trees turning color and the weather is perfect. A handful of fallen trees so pay attention on the downhills. ~ Rick
2014-09-21
Jumpingpound LoopKananaskis, AB

OPEN

There are 13 or more fallen trees lying across the trail in various spots as of today. Most of the downed trees are big enough that you need to pickup & carry your bike over or around them. ~ Rick2014-09-21

Perfect conditions on Treasure trail. This is a tough trail. Be prepared for steep rock slabs & a fair amount of woodwork. This trail is best ridden while dry.2014-09-20
Goat CreekCanmore, AB

OPEN

We just finished our first trip on Goat Creek and are happy to report that we didn't get our feet wet! The new Spray River bridge appears to be done. The approaches are all wide and smooth with a rail fence so you dont go over the bank. Some equipment was parked at The Spray River trailhead but the Closed signs are down on the Banff side (still up at Goat Creek). Looks like the crews took the time to fill in a number of potholes along the way too. ~ Rose2014-09-19

Family GuyMoose Mountain, AB

OPEN

The trail is mainly dry , with only a few puddles, in very good condition till you get down to the bottom. About 1.5 last kms before you cross Canyon Creek and get on Canyon Creek rd, the trail is badly damaged from cattle walking on it when it was very wet about week ago. It has so many pot holes from cattle, approximately 10 cm deep, not a nice ride there. ~ Martin

OPEN

rail was in great shape a few weeks ago when I took it after my Longdistance trail ride and after reconnect. Was slightly muddy in a few spots, but overall it was in good shape. Trail had just the right amount of moisture to let your tires get proper traction.

I have found that many people tend to climb up this trail so watch out if you are descending and going around a corner. ~ Aaen

Tom SnowKananaskis, AB

OPEN

Rode Tom Snow this morning as I went to the wrong parking lot and ended up over by snagmore and had to do a few extra km's to get to Ridgeback and due to time constraints from this, I opted to ride up Tom Snow. This trail is a mess especially in the lower sections, complete mud bog and it is beat up badly, needs some major TLC!! Once you get out of the slop just plug away and get out of the granny gears and it will take you no time to get to the top. The service road has the harder climbs up to the beginning of Ridgeback, which is a fun trail, not overly technical but you can really fly on it in spots. ~ Aaen2014-09-07

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

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

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

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

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

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
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
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
Pumphouse TrailsCampbell River, BC

OPEN

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
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. Take a 6-pack of cold ones into Gericks (LBS) and the guys will point you in the right direction. ~ TrevorW2014-07-11
Montane TraverseCanmore, AB

OPEN

Rode montane, tidbits, ridge traverse, meander and then back to cougar creek on montane. Montane is sweet and dry! Git er done!

P.S Avoid meander! Five large fallen trees along the way made the climb up a #&% ! Going down it would also suck...

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

Powderface Creek to Prairie LinkKananaskis, AB

OPEN

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

You would think that after all this rain River Runs Through It would be a mess, but on the contrary. The trail is in great shape, running nice and tacky. The woodwork is almost all dry, with only a few slick spots. Get out there and enjoy the beautiful evening it's turned out to be.2014-06-28
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

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

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
