Home to the only desert in Canada, the highest mountains in North America, and some of the tallest trees and highest waterfalls in Canada, BC’s trails are sure to lead you to some of the most awe-inspiring sceneries in the world.

Whether you enjoy hiking, mountain biking, horseback riding, cross-country skiing or snowshoeing, we offer you the most comprehensive network of multi-use trail systems available than any other source.
