Mighty Quinn has long, fun filled switchbacks and rollers and is a terrific downhill. Check out Gold Rush, Old Age and Treachery for some challenging trails with rocks, cliff sides, single track. An old stand for a... More

Excellent for anyone who is intermediate/advanced. This was too much for me, but I really appreciate how the Golden Cycle Club has maintained trails/maps/app.

Some of the best trails we've ever ridden.Lots of flowy trails. Would classify as intermediate. Mosquitoes are a real issue so make sure you have lots of spray.

We were staying at Pallister Lodge Hotel so had to drive past Moonrakers every time we went down into Golden and so thought we'd stop and take a look, and are so very pleased that we did. I know that it's primary trails for biking but you can also use it for hiking as well which we did and whether... More

The mountain bike trails in the Moonrakers are amazing. It is apparent that the local cycling crowd has done some good work here. We found lots to keep us entertained over the time we were there. Try the CBT loop, you won't regret it.

I tried their green and blue trails, they are well rated and very scenic. You can rent mountain bikes near the paragliding field at Nicholson.
