RIDE

Riding IN Huntsville

The HMBA is committed to the creation of a network of sustainable trails for the Huntsville Community. Through partnerships with municipal government and private land owners, the HMBA has entered into a number of agreements that will bring riding opportunities to the area

Trails managed or maintained by the HMBA

Echo Valley

Echo Valley Nature and Bike Trails is located 10 minutes east of Huntsville on Highway 60, consisting of a mix of single and double track trails, as well as a small pump track that is located at the trail entrance.

The HMBA has entered into an agreement with the Township of Lake of Bays to assist with trail development and maintenance. A trail map is at the trail head, along with an honour box to assist with maintenance costs. Please note that there have been several trail additions that have not been added to the trail map yet.

HIDDEN VALLEY

Through an agreement with the Town of Huntsville, Hidden Valley Ski Area Ski Hill, and the HMBA, the first publicly accessible mountain trails will soon be open! With the help of a great group of volunteers, the majority of the trail network is in its final stages awaiting final touches and signage. We’re targeting a Summer 2021 grand opening.

DEERHURST

Lances Loops

COMING SOON!

While many local riders have accessed these trails on private property for years, landowners have become increasingly concerned about the unauthorized access to their property by both motorized and non-motorized vehicles, and there was a risk of losing access to the trails. The HMBA has been able to secure an agreement that will keep the network known as Lances Loops open to HMBA members. While the trail network is largely established, we’re working to ensure trails stay on property established in the agreement, make improvements where needed, and add trail and trail head signage.

ADDRESS: North Mary Lake Area (Trail head information coming soon)
