Summer Trails at Falcon Ridge
There is plenty of fun to be had at Falcon Ridge in the summer time with hiking, biking and walking trails galore! To accommodate all user types we have both wide gravel paths and more narrow, technical, single track trails. But make sure you come ready for the hills! We have lots of elevation changes around here with our rocky landscape.
Come for the afternoon and hike to one of our many scenic look-outs with a picnic in tow. When you get back to the parking lot you can go for a quick dip in the lake off of our public dock! Be sure to stop in at the Falcon Trails Resort Welcome Centre lobby for information from our front desk staff, they'll be happy to say 'hello!' and start you on your way. Out network of trails is also connected to The Great Trail (formerly the Trans Canada Trail) so you could even ride here right from the town-site of Falcon Lake.
Always respect your fellow trail users and only leave your foot-prints behind you.
Five of Diamonds
Mountain Bike Route
The Five of Diamonds is our flagship summer mountain bike route that links together most of the individual bike trails at our ski hill. It was developed through the incredible support of the 2 Tyred Builders (sub group of the South Whiteshell Trail Association), and its passionate volunteers.
This challenging and technical route winds through the boreal forest and over granite outcrops of the Canadian Shield. There is a strong variation of challenging rock-faces, some easy single track, lots of wood features, a few steep drop-roll downs and machine built switchback climbs. The route is 7 km long and well marked with red signage. It is free to use and open to the public with the purchases of your Whiteshell Provincial Park Pass.
Download the free GPS Trail Forks app to navigate with your smart phone while you are on route. With this app you will be able to discover many more of the South Whiteshell Trail Association trails. Click on the "Trail Karma" button and be sure to make a donation to help our trail building cause! Every dollar you donate will be put directly towards the Five of Diamonds mountain bike trail development at the Falcon Ridge Ski Slopes and Falcon Trails Resort.
