Trails - Brookvale Nordic

Enjoy some of Atlantic Canada's best Mountain Bike trails as you tear through the green canopies of Brookvale Nordic Mountain Bike Park, Gairloch Road Trail, or Beck Trail near Murray River. As public mountain bike venues, these trails offer a mix of ‘flowy’ single-track and sweeping double-track sections. These trails are legendary in P.E.I. and have become fast and worked-in over years of faithful usage. Whether you are a beginner hoping to explore rich Island forests, or an expert set on pushing your limits as you flow through rusty red single-track, P.E.I. has a Mountain Bike experience for you.

Brookvale Nordic Center is the home to 40 kilometers of single track trail.  It is the mountain biking mecca of PEI.   Home to the Rigid Riders Mountain Bike Club it offers a variety of trail difficulty from beginner to expert.  Contact Cycling PEI for more information.

The Beck Trail built on family land dating back to 1880, was preserved as the John J. And Annie Beck Natural Area in October 2009. Owner Paul Jenkins then decided to construct a trail consisting of two loops. The front ‘Red’ loop is 4.6 kms. Rated as a beginner/intermediate level biking trail.  The ‘Blue’ loop is 5.4 km and is rated intermediate/expert biking.  The result is the multipurpose trail which is now open for public use year round.  Ride the 10 km trail in a figure of eight.  Start at the exit of the red trail, ride past the first blue trail entrance and go in the second blue trail entrance.  The trail flows faster this way.

The Gairloch Trail on Route 204 next to the Confederation Trail is a mountain biking and hiking trail.  It is primarily a loop trail of about 7 km The trail is a moderate difficulty running through hilly terrain, with several bridged stream crossings.  The steep ravine sides have switchbacks.

Whatever type of cycling you are looking for it can be found amongst the fields, tree, and striking red soil.  This is a place were you can discover, enjoy and cherish cycling.  Come and cycle our Island.
