The Bulkley Valley boasts a wide range of riding oppurtunities. From fast flowy single track to epic mountain rides to technical steep downhill there is something for everyone. The Smithers Mountain Bike Association has taken over the management of bike trails in three trail networks:

There are also a number of trails in other areas of the valley.

Trail descriptions are available under "Our Trails".  If you only have a bit of time or don’t want to drive to ride we recommend the Bluff Recreation Area which is just over the railway overpass from town. These trails are also the earliest to be snow free in the spring, and seem to hold up best when conditions get wetter.
