,Mt. Swansea offers some of the best DH riding in the Kootenay Rockies. Its steep, fast, and technical trails are favorites for locals and visitors to the Columbia Valley.
“Along the Johnson” is a magnificent, 11 kilometers all-mountain trail. Its twisty, flowy singletrack with short climbs and a fast descent along the beautiful Toby Creek Canyon are characteristic aspects of Columbia Valley riding and are sure to nourish your stoke.
These professional maps are the culmination of four years of hard work by Columbia Valley Cycling Society and its allies. They are the first sanctioned mountain bike trail maps available in the area. It is hoped that this will mark the beginning of a cohesive, well-maintained, and mapped network of Columbia Valley trails that will expose riders to the excellent, second to none, Columbia Valley mountain bike scene.
With the help of our partners at the District of Invermere and the B.C. provincial Ministry of Tourism, Culture, and the Arts, the maps are available for FREE. You can pick yours at the local bike shops and at the chamber of commerce. Plus you can download your own on the CVCS website
The trails at Mt. Swansea and Along the Johnson are maintained and trail marker signs have been erected. As support for the club and local mountain bike trails grow, the Columbia Valley Cycling Society plans to continue its work with stakeholders in the valley on increasing the number of sanctioned, mapped bike trails.
Invermere, B.C. is a three hour drive from Calgary, Alberta.
