Dirt Biking

Dirt Biking

Canadian provinces have some of the best trails and logging roads for off-road dirt bikes. From highly-technical ascents and descents to smooth, rolling single-track, there’s something for every rider. Get geared up and head out with your friends to explore all the awesome areas our provinces have to offer!

Be safe on the trails:

  • Wear a helmet and proper protective equipment.
  • Pack the necessary tools and gear.
  • Keep your bike well-maintained.
  • Know your limits. Ride within your abilities, in a controlled manner and with common sense.

Respect the environment and other trail users:

  • Stop and shut down your bike when you meet hikers, bikers or horses on the trail.
  • Avoid loud tailpipes. Some riding areas have closed thanks to a few people with loud mufflers who ignore the rules.
