What I did
rode the trails of Sun Peaks Bike Park

Flag of Canada  , British Columbia,
Monday, August 15, 2011

Sun Peaks Bike Park is located 50 km outside of the city of Kamloops. The park offers 2,000 vertical feet of lift accessed terrain, and 29 unique trails that range from beginner to advanced. The park offers seven green, eight blue and fourteen black trails. Sun Peaks is steep and technical, lots of rocks and roots on the advanced trails, trails such as Insanity One and Honey Drop are thought to be the toughest dh trails in the province of British Columbia, if not the world,  that is some serious gnar. Trails such as Sugar and Sweet one that have plenty wood work some even going through swampy sections.The saying look ahead and not in swamp does come to mind.   Accomodation-The villiage of Sun Peaks itself is well equiped with shops, restaurants, accomodation and activities for all age groups.hotels range from 5 star, b&b's,apartments and condo's, Kamloops is within one hour and has a full range of accomodation as well, but good deals on combo rates for rooms and activities are easy to find on the Sun Peaks  web page
Activites.Some of the many activities are stand up paddle boarding and canoeing at the near by Heffley lake,  horse back riding,18 hole golf course, xc bike riding and of corse the dh bike park.Hiking is very popular here, the alpine hike is a must do,the top of the world trail is amazing, the views are incredible and the wild flowers are in full display for a good part of the summer, bears and deer are a commen sight.

Monique the Mountain Bikers Review- Sun Peaks is definatly a step up in bike park riding, A blue run here is equal to a black run in other parks. The majority of the trails are not machine groomed so be prepared to have arm pump and work your brakes, the trails are world class, more old school. I loved the park and it is a different kind of shred, a must do on your trip through B.C. You will enjoy the park, come see what gnar really is. cheers Q
