SCA Ride Guide: reporting on some of the best places to cycle in Saskatchewan.

 

Prince Albert Little Red River Park

Prince Albert and area offers many places to mountain bike.  The closest set of mountain bike trails is at Little Red River Park. The City run park is only a 5-minute drive from the city.  Little Red has trails for the novice rider or the rider that wants to get into some of the most technical single track in Saskatchewan.  The trail system is primarily based around the cross-country ski trail system and trails have been developed around the Little Red River valley, where you will find challenging descents and climbs with a few boardwalks built over boggy areas. 

This is host to an annual Sask Cup Provincial Mountain Bike Race and will be hosting the first ever endurance race at this location. The Cosmopolitan Lodge in the heart of Little Red River Park offers a great place for riders to top up their bottles or grab a bite to eat. 

Other areas to mountain bike in the Prince Albert area include the Prince Albert National Park (PANP) and Anglin Lake Provincial Park.  The mountain bike trails in the PANP are great trails for the riders who don't want anything technical, but want to take in breath taking scenery and fun and fast rolling terrain.  You can even do some longer rides to the West Side where there is a heard of free-range buffalo.  The trails in the PANP are cleared by Park Wardens regularly.
