Falcon Trails

Description: The Falcon Lake cycling trails are located 160 km east of Winnipeg at the Falcon Ridge Ski and Recreational area on the south side of Falcon Lake. The trails are situated on the Canadian Shield and offer very technical riding over rocks, but also plenty of easy to moderately difficult single track bike trails, X-country ski trails, and dirt road. Some short steep climbs/ descents.

Trail Access: The trails are located within the Whiteshell Provincial Park, so a Manitoba Provincial Park pass is required to park and use the trails.

Grand Beach

Description: Grand Beach is located 110 km north of Winnipeg off of Highway #59. The cross country ski and bike trails are located on a hill-like landform deposited here by glacial activity more than 14,000 years ago. The moraine is also made up of granite boulders, brought here by the glacier from the Precambrian Shield on the east side of Lake Winnipeg and adjoining parts of northwestern Ontario. Eight thousand (8,000) years ago this area was the shore of glacial Lake Agassiz and as a result is covered in sand. Trails tend to be sand covered, and can be somewhat unstable when dry, but dry quickly after a rain. Riders will experience moderate elevation changes. Some sections of the trails are covered with rocks (The Rock Gardens) and will be difficult for novice riders, but no problem walking through these sections. There is lots of fast flowing single track, which is fun for all levels of riders.

Trail Access: The trails are located within the Grand Beach Provincial Park, so a Manitoba Provincial Park pass is required to park and use the trails.

Birds Hill Provincial Park

Description: The Birds Hill Provincial Park is 20 km north of Winnipeg just off Highway #59. Birds hill offers an easy to moderate level of cycling difficulty on the Bur Oak, Chickadee and Cedar Bog Trails. Moderate changes in elevation with some technical sections on the Bur Oak Trail.

Trail Access: The trails are located within the Birds Hill Provincial Park, so a Manitoba Provincial Park pass is required to park and use the trails.
