Mountain biking in Sun Peaks includes more than just DH riding in the Bike Park. For those who like to earn their berms, Sun Peaks offers a growing network of pedal-access riding options. 


High above the Bike Park, Altitude is a lift-access loop that starts from the top of the Sunburst Express. You’ll climb through wildflower meadows, forests, and past the peak of Tod Mountain, before reaching tranquil Tod Lake. From there the trail descends back towards the chairlift, where you can connect with Level Up for a fun, flowy ride back to the village, completing 16km of beautiful alpine riding. Looking for a more advanced way down? Connect from Altitude to Sugar and then Sweet One for a rip down some classic Sun Peaks tech. 

Big Rock Ride, also lift-access, offers an undulating ride through sub-alpine forests before connecting back into the Bike Park at the top of Sundance Mountain.  

Please note: a valid lift ticket or season pass is required to ride any of the Bike Park trails, including Altitude and Big Rock Ride. Click here for details. The Morrisey/Valley pedal-access network is available for use free of charge. 


Outside the Bike Park, the Valley pedal-access network offers a growing selection of free-to-use trails to explore.

On Mt. Morrisey, experience scenic views and lush cedar forest via a network of five new trails. Cedar Twist, a 6km singletrack climb trail, starts near the base of the Morrisey Express and provides access to the top of Morrisey. Be mindful of hikers while riding, as this is a shared-use trail. Once at the top, you can extend your pedal on Sticky Fingers, an out-and-back trail near the peak of Mt. Morrisey. When you’re ready to head down, pick between Calypso Groove, El Diablo, or Stumpwheed for a thrilling descent.

Additional trails exist around Morrisey and elsewhere in the valley, including a mix of singletrack cross country style trails and doubletrack access roads. With trails to suit most levels of rider, they are a great option for an evening pedal or a family ride out to McGillivray Lake. This network is usually ready to ride in early to mid-June and closes when the snow arrives in late October.

Pedal-access trails are developed and maintained by the Sun Peaks Recreational Trail Association, a dedicated group of community trail builders.
