Hinton Bike Park is located at the core of Hinton's mountain bike trail network and was made possible by the Hinton Mountain Bike Association (HMBA) and the Town of Hinton.
The Bike Park was designed by Norco team rider Jay Hoots, allowing riders to "session" bike features many times in short time frames, thereby improving riding skills in a safe and structured environment.
The skills area was designed with lots of options and progression for all abilities. Rider of all skill levels can session the skill area for hours trying new lines. It's a safe and controlled place to try new features and work on balance.
The Dirt Jumps were designed to safe by using "table top" jumps instead of regular "gap" dirt jumps. This style of jump allows for good progression because, if you short the landing you still can ride it out. There are 4 sizes 2, 3, 4 and 5 feet tall with 3 sets each and a berm to slow and turn you around at the end.
The Drop Zone has 3 drops on the upper slope leading to 4 different drops on lower slope. The progression levels are very good on these drops. Once you get used to the speed and feel of the smaller drops you can try a little bit bigger one.
Progression Trail aka. Business Time
The Progression Trail was designed as the next step from the Skill Area. It has similar features but located on a single track trail. It's a good little trail for learning to ride features with more flow and speed.
The Flow Trail is all about flow when you ride it. It has lots of berms and it teaches you how to corner and carry your speed. It's a fun trail to session to get faster on your bike.
