Trails

Squamish has a trail system that is envied around the world. Our network of trails is used by walkers, hikers, mountain bikers, horseback riders, trials riders and dirt bikers. Local community organizations spend countless hours maintaining the trails, and work with various levels of government to construct new ones. A passionate group of community volunteers helps support these efforts throughout the year.

Below you will find a listing of some of our most popular trails as well as some of our lesser-known gems. For more information, visit the Squamish Adventure Centre to pick up your copy of our Squamish Recreation Trail Map or the Squamish Mountain Bike Trail Map produced by Trailmapps.
