Williams Lake Mountain Bike Trail Networks

Fox Mountain

This is the longest standing trail network in Williams Lake and is host to some of the most stunning scenery in the Cariboo. The network has 28 trails totaling over 45Km of single track. The network is 28% beginner, 37% intermediate and 40% advanced.

All trails can be accessed via a nice climb up Jimmy’s Fox or by shuttling up Fox mountain Road. There are three trailheads on the network, all of which has a large Kiosk with maps and other information. View the Fox Mountain Trail Map.

South Lakeside

The South Lakeside trail network is an XC mecca with long smooth climbs and fast descents through amazing Douglas Fir forests. The area lies on the Traditional Territory of the Northern Shuswap First Nation and the Williams Lake Cycling Club is currently in discussions with Williams Lake First Nation to allow for mountain biking in the area. We encourage folks to ride this area with a soft foot print, respecting those who came before you.

The main trail head starts at the bottom of Prosperity Way which is the road to the Walmart. Pass through a chain gate up a double track road and proceed straight onto single track through logged area. You'll enter the network on 2 Fridges and work you way up hill, cross a road onto the bottom of Moose Drop and eventually to Guinness on your left. This trail will take you into the vastness of the Southside network. View the South Lakeside Trail Map.


This is an intermediate to advanced network with many beginner options. The Westsyde network has 40 trails with over 97Km of singletrack, including the legendary Box Trail loop which is a XC epic with view of the Fraser River and covers over 25Km. The network is also host to some of Williams Lake most progressive free-riding. View the Westsyde Trail Map.

Desous Mountain

Desous is a 1/2 hour drive west of the City and is home to some truly amazing free riding. Descents of 3500ft from the top of Desous Mountain all the way to the Fraser River make this home to some of the biggest lines this side of Golden. This area is intended for advanced riders, as there is no real easy way down. If you're looking for big lines, this is where it's at.
