Explore the Undiscovered

From raw, technical singletrack to doubletrack trails for the beginners and scenic cruisers, Quesnel has trails to satisfy all skill levels and abilities. The panoramic view from the top of Dragon Mountain is worth the ride up along the scenic climbing trail (or quick lap seekers can shuttle to the top, too). Once there, experienced riders can loop infinite trails on some of the gnarliest rocky terrain in the region or beginner's can choose gentle rides down.

If you’re looking for a trail network that you can ride all day, Wonderland is only minutes from downtown with scenic views of Dragon Lake and all of the blue and black singletrack you need. While the South Quesnel Park pump track and the Quesnel Bike Park next to the Quesnel Arts and Recreation Centre offer the ideal terrain and features for all ages to practice bike skills.
