Home » Alberta Adventure Guide » Before Summer Ends in the Canadian Rockies: Mountain Bike Jasper!
- Oh, the summers in the Canadian Rockies and Jasper National Park go by so fast. It seems like just yesterday that I carefully put all of my ski gear away, and now today I’m trying to remember where I put it. Before you go looking for your ski gear, or snowshoes, there’s still time to get out the mountain bike.
The Canadian Rockies are known for having some of the best and most scenic mountain biking in North American, and Jasper National Park certainly fits the bill, offering hundreds of miles and kilometers of mountain biking trails ranging from easy to difficult for bikers of all levels.
From late spring to early fall, mountain bikers can chose from an endless array of designated trails that will take them on great tours of the beautiful wilderness of Jasper National Park.
There is also a great variety of terrain, ranging from the extremely challenging that will wear out even expert bikers, to great loping rides that are fun for the whole family.
Those who are looking for an adrenaline pumping trail in Jasper but need equipment can find rentals at Freewheel Cycle Jasper. The rental shop is also stocked with trail guides specifying in detail which trails are open to mountain biking.
Beginners and new intermediates should check out the Athabasca River Trail, a 23-kilometer course cruising behind Jasper’s golf course and along the peaceful Athabasca River.
Intermediates will like Mina-Riley Lake Loop (9km), while the more advanced mountain bikers should give Saturday Night Lake Loop (27km) a go.
