Banff Area Biking

Tunnel Bench Loop 5.7 km - Moderate

STARTING POINTS: Hoodoos Lookout Parking Lot or Tunnel Mountain Campground The Toe 7.9 km 

One of Banff ’s most popular rides, the Tunnel Bench Loop contours the top of Tunnel Mountain and offers fantastic views of Mount Rundle and Cascade Mountain. Great for all levels, this entry-level singletrack can be ridden in either direction. Some vertical exposure provides a bit of excitement, which is easily averted by walking your bike. Extend your ride by linking this trail with The Toe or the Bow Falls – Hoodoos Trail.  The trail usually gets groomed by local fat bikers. Please be aware of cross country ski tracks, riding on them wrecks the tracks which can endanger fellow cross country skiers later on. 

Spray River Loop 11.3 -Moderate

STARTING POINTS: Faimont Banff Spring parking lot (Spray River Loop parking behind hotel)

Spray River Loop is a wide trail that features exceptional views and a mix of downhill and uphill terrain for moderate and intermediate  riders. It offers a great extension to the Goat Creek trail which will take you to Spray River Lakes (19km one way) and can be ridden in any direction.
