Hinton Bike Park, AB

After years of watching outdoor enthusiasts drive west through Hinton on route  to Jasper to spend valuable tourist dollars, one city councilor and a group of mountain bikers got together to create a Mountain Bike Club developing and organizing the city of Hinton as a destination area, offering mountain biking opportunities that Jasper and other local areas did not have. 

Hinton Alberta is the first Alberta municipality to have a full scale mountain bike park, including trails system, comprehensive skills area, jump park and parking.  Skills trails, down hill trails and access trail loops that tie in with current cross country trails all start in the Skills park and through progression based features lead riders further out into more natural areas. 

With a dynamic club and enthusiastic supportive council, the Hinton Mountain Bike Club worked with Hoots to develop a multi year development plan that would tie into existing infrastructure and other localized trails to enhance the neighborhoods it bordered.

Hinton’s Skills Park combined with a series of trails throughout the community diversifies it’s experience offering from Jasper creating a magnet for tourism dollars without creating competition with it’s neighbor.

The Hinton Mountain Bike Association keeps an updated website with all sorts of information, check it out:
