  • Rec Site #:REC98530
  • Type:Maintained
  • Fees:None
  • Campsites:0
  • Access:Road
  • Facilities:None
  • Site Description: This Recreation Site is primarily for mountain biking -- 2 trailheads at the top (in Hudson Bay Mountain Resort area) access 3 downhill trails, which converge at a parking area at the bottom. "Piper Down" and "Piper Cross" are single-track downhill trails, and the 3rd, "Paydirt" is a machine-built double-track trail with tabletop jumps and berms. All three of these are rated as advanced trails, however, ride-arounds do exist that lower the difficulty to an intermediate level in most cases. Remember to ride within your limits and to inspect features before riding them. These trails are semi-remote in nature and require riders to pack appropriate repair and safety gear with them while riding.

  • Driving Directions: From Smithers, follow signage up to the Hudson Bay Mountain Resort area (~25km on Hudson Bay Mtn Rd, from Pacific Street and Dahlie Rd.). The Piper Down/Piper Cross trailhead is accessed from the 'Prairie' T-bar parking area at the very end of this road. The parking area just before the end (upper/overflow parking) is where the machine-built jump-track trailhead is.
