Abbotsford: Area trail networks are great for cycling

Opportunities for mountain bikers, road cyclists and families

With its vast network of country roads and scenic dyke trails, Abbotsford is one of British Columbia’s best places for cycling.

A famous destination is the Discovery Trail, which meanders from the west side of Abbotsford to Sumas Mountain.

The dyke trail system is amazing, and cyclists can take advantage of the Sumas Dyke Trail to connect to dyke trail systems along the Vedder River and more.

It’s ideal for cyclists with children, as vehicle traffic on the dyke trail system is almost non-existent.

With stunning river views dominated by the scenic, ice-clad Mount Baker, Abbotsford is a great place to road cycle, there are also ample opportunities for mountain bike enthusiasts.

Sumas Mountain has many trails, and there are also other great areas to go off-road.
