Terrace Mountain Trails
The Terrace Mountain trails are located approx. 3.5 km from the Visitor Information Centre on Highway 16 in Terrace. The main trailhead is located at the junction of Johnstone Street and Walsh Avenue and a second trailhead is located at the end of Munthe Avenue.
Hiking Trail: A moderate 4.5 km trail with some steep sections. Benches are located at a rock bluff near the top of the mountain where there are excellent views of Terrace and the Skeena Valley.
Mountain Bike Trail: A difficult single track 7.5 km loop that includes a physically challenging climb and a technically challenging descent. The trail begins with a moderate climb at the Johnstone Street trailhead and traverses the west face of the mountain. It then joins the hiking trail for a short section and then begins to climb more steeply with a series of switchbacks. Riders who want to avoid the more technical sections can turn around at the top and ride back to the start via the up-track. The trail has interesting and varied terrain with beautiful vistas along the way and includes many bridges, boardwalks and berms.
It is recommended that you ride with a partner on this trail, and remember, you are in bear country so make noise when riding. Appropriate helmets and safety gear are recommended.
