Mountain Biking Great Divide Bike Path

**   Add a review
#178 of 219 mountain bike trails in Alberta
#10,871 in the world

Measuring 6.5 miles one-way, this bike path is a gated, abandoned stretch of the original Trans Canada highway. The forest is coming back, though, and is slowly taking over this stretch of pavement.

This forms a great loop with Ross Lake

This path crosses the Continental Divide and passes into British Columbia and Yoho National Park.

    A great beginner or family style ride. It is also a great ride for crossing over a Provincial border, the Alberta / British Columbia border. From what I have read there are varying lengths to this but you could camp along the way and there is 500 kms of "trail".

    This is a paved bike path, but it's closed to motorized travel and passes through some beautiful terrain. Also, it crosses the provincial border between AB and BC, which is pretty cool.
