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.

Bike Skills Park
A 5-acre bike skills park is located on Tetrault Street and Haugland Avenue (across from the Hospital).  This Park was developed with the help of the local biking club and volunteers from various community groups in 2007.  The park includes a variety of equipment like teeter totter ramps, as well as a bike bowl and other natural obstacles to challenge riders.  Wear your helmet and appropriate safety gear!
 
Skateboard Park
The Skateboard Park is located adjacent to the north parking lot at the Sportsplex.  The Skateboard Park is also used by BMX riders.  Helmets are mandatory!
 
Howe Creek Trails
With over 5 km of trails to explore in the Howe Creek Trail system, bike riders and walkers (young and old) can enjoy themselves in this pristine and natural creek bed.  Access onto the trail system is at Christie Park clubhouse at the end of Sparks Street (in the Horseshoe).
 
Other Recreational Opportunities
The BC Government maintains a variety of sites and trails in the Terrace area. Trails range from easy wheelchair accessible family walks to difficult routes over rough terrain into alpine areas. Sites and trails are within easy driving distance of Terrace and are 2WD accessible unless otherwise noted.  The trails have been rated for the reasonably physically fit hiker and have been divided into 3 categories, easy, medium and difficult.
