I love this place. It's for all levels of mountain bikers and the best place to bike around Regina especially with all the new trails. It use to be just biking on hiking trails but now there is berms, pump sections, and even a few small jumps.

Don't leave valuables in your vehicle!

A lot has changed since we had IMBA's Trail Care Crew come for a couple visits. There is now a network of fast, flowing trails! The faster you go, the more challenging the trails are. In addition, there is now an easy, winding route into the trails from the parking lot that makes the trails truly multi-use (mountain biking, trail-running, hikers & parents with off-road strollers). If you haven't been to Wascana Trails in awhile, come and check it out!

Spent a good few hours exloring here while I was in town, and was pleasantly surprised. Nothing overly technical, as others have mentioned, but there are a few spots that will keep you on your toes. The switchback-y downhill on the other side of the parking lot is a blast, as are a few other spots on the other side of the river. I think there are enough quality trails here to make a fantastic XC course for the Canada Games next year.

I rode Wascana on the August 30/03 weekend. If you stay on the main side of the river, the same as the parking lot, you are wasting your time. You need to cross the river, yes you will get wet. The trails here are over grown and are in need of grooming. Some of the trails such as Six Pack have been washed away. There are some good trails here. I feel that once it is cleaned up there will be some good runs to ride, even if you are looking for some good techincal runs. If the trails get cleaned up the rating could be a 5

This area has a nice mix of riding for different skill levels. There's some hard and fairly technical climbs and descents, but a beginner could go riding here and not come back with a mortal fear of biking. The site is also nice and treed and green, not at all like the patchwork quilt of grainfields that covers this province. By the way, check out the Provincial Sunlight Sask. Cup race here on June 27, 1999.

Cross the bridge as soon as you descend into the valley, then head straight across onto the opposite bank of the valley. There's a hard enough climb going up the valley, but it's nicely shaded by the trees and the trail is nice and wide. Then, when at the top of the valley, point your bike straight down and cruise.

Let's see. Buffalo Pound Prov. Park has two sites, White Track and Nicolle Flats, of which White Track is the better. Regina Beach has a very big network of trails, especially south of the town. Go on the shoreside trail south and follow the singletrack. You can still ride the badlands at Avonlea, and it's pretty cool too, but be prepared to chuck out your tubes after the ride. Above all, don't waste your time at White Butte, which is totally pancake-flat.

This trail has everything that you could dream of in a prairie trail. While it doesnt cover a whole bunch of area, you won't find better riding around. There's a nice mix of semi-technical climbs where traction can become an issue, and some technical (albeit not all that long) decents. Riding this trail will get any rider accustomed comfortable on the bike, and will even challenge some riders, both physically and technically.

Customer Service

Get across the river, all the god riding is on the far side. Once you're there, you can snake around different trails for hours, and not see the same trail twice.

For a nice relaxing ride with the kids, try white butte or head out to avonlea for something completely different.

Just a bit of an update. The toilet bowl area is about 3/4 km. north of the parking lot, and it contains six different downhill trails, all of which are at least at intermediate-level difficulty. These trails are fun, and I'd like to see at least one of them included in the wascana trails race next spring.

happy trails

I rode this trail on the last weekend of October and on December 28th, and sweet things are in store here. The ridge along the southeast edge of the boundary has a nice tight downhill and a sweet off-camber singletrack trail along the side of the hill. The crown jewel here is the series of downhills along the logs down the hill. Of course, don't forget about the toilet bowl, now with six trails. And Mike from South Sask. was talking about developing trails north of the toilet bowl, so there's more in store. Damn, do I ever want the snow to melt...

if you live in Regina it beats the hell out of riding at Douglas Park but it's not going to fill you North Shore needs. Some challenging little sections here and there and realy fast riding not to technical.

Customer Service

go where ever, if you like realy rolly fast trails with nice corners and not technical go way out to the right near the end of the park, and if you like slow super steep not very technical trails go way to the left into the toilet bowl.
