Where Culture and Adventure Collide

Terrace is a booming community surrounded by impressive mountain scenery and the mighty Skeena River. It is no wonder why residents embrace adventure and have created two impressive trail networks.

Terrace Mountain overlooks the town and offers an array of challenging cross-country trails while Copper Mountain, located in the adjacent Thornhill neighbourhood, has some amazing downhill and freeride trails. For fun and practice, bikers can practice their skills at the town's new skill bike park.
