Mountain Biking

From the moment tread meets dirt, you’ll understand the hype around Vernon’s mountain biking. We have a lot of something-for-everyone – from expert-level singletrack to milder terrain for those looking to get a little stoke on the path-less-travelled.

Kalamalka Lake Provincial Park

Kal Park (as the locals call it) has the largest concentration of bike trails in the greater Vernon area. From the classic Big Ed loop to spectacular views from the Lookout trail, the park has trails to suit all riders. Try out the fun Blue flow trail Flovid, but first, you’ll have to climb up Stonefree (named with a tongue in cheek as there are many stones to cross! If you are really looking to test your mettle, try the Killer King Route with 50km of singletrack and 1800m of climbing.
