Great network of short trails for all skill levels. Everything from XC to DH. A great place to learn to Mountain bike.
Currently no signage, so just try to enjoy yourself and don’t get hung-up on where you are. It is a small network and can easily get mixed around.
Be sure to check out the Campbell Mountain loop, at about 10km long, it a great introductory to riding in Penticton.
You can see the status of trails here. Campbell Mountain Trail Status
Three Blind Mice
The Three Blind Mice area overlooks Okanagan Lake to the west. This area is mainly composed of beautiful ponderosa pine, rock bluffs, and grasslands. These trails offer downhill runs that flow through the forest and beautiful views of the orchards and vineyards that border the Okanagan Lake.
Check the trail status before you go. http://www.bikepenticton.com/mountain/three-blind-mice/
For an introductory to the Three Blind Mice, head for the Lookout Loop.
Mt Conkle has some decent singletrack which takes one up to some great views over the lake and surrounding peaks.
Test of Humanity
The Test of Humanity trail is the main feature of an annual race and fundraiser of the same name. The Test of Humanity supports Canadian Humanitarian aid and the Okanagan Food Bank.
This 10k loop features thousands of volunteer hours that carefully shaped it into one epic track. Lots of flow-filled berms, pumpable rollers, and high speeds take the cake on the downhill sections while the climbs are accented by scenic vistas. Varied uphill and downhill sections keep riders fresh and wanting more.
The Test of Humanity trail is appropriate for newer to advanced riders.
BC Parks has sanctioned 3 trails within this section of the park: Ward 1, Rock Oven and Sauerkraut. The original dirt road that follows Gillies Creek eastward is also a sanctioned recreation trail. These trails are multi-use trails, used by both hikers and bikers. As in the rest of the park, dogs must be on leash.
Rock Oven is a popular ride that can be as epic as you want. Stop and take photos from the several wicked view points or just hammer up and down.
Trailforks is a very useful app to get you out on the trails. You can find the list of trails in the area. Penticton Trails.
