The legendary...the real deal.
Few places on earth have had as much impact on the mtb world as Vancouver's North Shore mountains. From way back in the day it has been featured in countless freeride films and inspired trail builders and bikers around the world to replicate "The Shore" style of riding.
Only 45 minutes from the furthest outlying suburb of Metro Vancouver, the beautiful North Shore Mountains are a treasure to both residents and visitors of the region. “The Shore” as it is affectionately referred to by the locals is the backyard playground to the regions 2.3 million residents and offers some of the best mountain biking experiences in BC.
The North Shore community offers a full range of shops and services to support your biking adventure. With 8 bike shops within minutes of trail heads, local hotels that cater to the cycling community and a host of restaurants and snack shops to choose from you will find everything you need to make your day trip or week long adventure enjoyable.
The North Shore trails featured here are brought to you by a partnership of land managers including BC Parks (Mount Seymour), Metro Vancouver (Lower Seymour Conservation Reserve), District of North Vancouver (Mt Fromme) and the North Shore Mountain Biking Association (local trail advocacy group). This partnership extends beyond trail advocacy and maintenance as many of the partners play host to “the shore’s” annual cycling events including the Dirty Duo, the Muddy Buddy, the BC Bike Race and The North Shore Bike Festival, a weekend long event that promotes cycling of all kinds from BMX, Cross-Country and Downhill.
The trails highlighted here are a small selection of trails that can serve as starting points as you discover the wide variety of riding on the original “North Shore”.
