The trails in Terwilligar park can be quite challenging. If you are 11 years old. And riding an 80 pound Canadian Tire bike. And you are blind, and obiese. In truth, Terwilligar park is a great place for all you Enduro-XC nuts to whip out your superlight, short travel e-xc bikes and crank around at 40km/h. If you are looking for any hard technical, or good killer downhill with drops/jumps, then this is the WRONG PLACE TO GO.

road routes listed above to get there on bike: A) doubletrack behind Fort Edmonton Park B) up Whitemud Drive (past some billion dollar homes, real tuff climb) C) at the top, follow the signs.

Similar Products Used: Mill Creek ravine has some killer stuff, hit the Leg grounds downtown for some fun urban and a little bit of huckage.

This is a good area to take beginner rides, but there are a few good sections for better riders. The problem is the good sections are hard to find, and they aren't long enough. The river valley has much better riding.

Customer Service

There are many trails that you can find from the parking lot

Similar Products Used: lots of good stuff in the river valley, but its just a matter of finding it or riding with people that know.

Off leash area for dog owners, so be careful with the animals!!! Many trails for all levels. You just have to be adventurous to go into the woods and amongst the trees. Some really steep climbs and jumps plus rocks and tree roots large and small. So, you can rock or cruise; it's your call. some trails are very narrow and can only allow one biker in one direction, so watch out for each other! Ring your bell around the hidden corners! There are also some downhills trails for those who have little appreciation of their mortality!

I love this park and live only five minutes from it. I ride into this park at least once a week. Mornings or right before supper time are the best! Least ridden by others!

Two main way into this park: down a rocky trail from Terwillegar Estate OR down Rabbit Hill Road.

pretty simple stuff, it makes for a fun afternoon ride. little climbing, you can mix and match trails in the lower areas, where they are networked.
it is also an off leash area for dogs so watch out you don't kill a poodle.

Two of my favorite trails in this park are the Fireman's trail and the Solicitor General run. The first is apparently not legally in the park as they cut it out of Muddpuppy a few years back. It starts at the top of the fire road leading into the park up from Riverbend. The second is a really fast downhill leading out of the park, you end up in farmland by Ellerslie. Super fast, could make more a super nasty crash coming around some of those blind corners.

The best riding in Edmonton and area. There are many little pockets of offroad trails in the river valley but there are just endless networks of trails in Terwillegar. It has everything for all skill levels except for the really hardcore people who like dropping seven stories into alligator pits. Great for introducing someone to off road riding since the off road trails are usually connected to the main gravel trails. I've gone 10+ times in the last two months and still keep finding new trails. The variety is just great. The dogs and hikers aren't usually a problem since they stay neat the main trails and rarely stray deep into the forest. It's so close, it's a great way to spend a couple hours after work.

Awesome riding!! All skill levels can have a good time. There are races held here every once in a while and also at Sunridge. IT's the first place I did mountain biking at and I'm still finding new trails and challenging myself with different drops. I recommend the Golf run which runs by the golf course: it's long, not too challenging but you can get tons of speed. My speed on this trail was clocked at 51.2 km/h! Beat that!
