Squamish Grom-Friendly Bike Parks

Squamish is jam-packed with kid-accessible trails, but when groms are first starting out, or trying to work on their skills, some may find full-blown trails a tad daunting. Bike parks can do wonders for their confidence and achievements, and Squamish is home to two of the best grom-friendly parks around. As an added bonus once when they finish riding for the day there is even a space to spread out for an afternoon picnic.

SORCA Bike Skills Park 

The SORCA Bike Skills Park is currently closed for a comprehensive rebuild. Following the completion of the ugrades, the park is due to reopen in September 2023.

Developed and maintained by the SORCA (Squamish Off-Road Cycling Association), the SORCA Bike Skills Park is an excellent place for groms to hone their skills in a safe environment.

The park is located next to the Brennan Park Recreational Area and is the neighbour to a large green field and wooded area well suited for family lounging once playtime is over. Features in the park are rated from green to black and all have ride around options to keep riding stress-free. Though it is not required, users are encouraged to buy a yearly SORCA trail pass ($15) to help fund future maintenance.

Park Features include:

Pump track
Single track loop
Beginner jumps

This is right behind my tent. Resisting the temptation to ride it. A) I have no excess energy and B) I don't want to injure myself. Two more days to go. @bcbikerace #thatviewthough #pumptrackgoals #outsideisfree A post shared by Jennifer Purcell (@pinkmtbr) on
