The Tumbler Ridge Pump Track - Sponsored By Freshmart
The TRMBA along with our many partners has built a paved pump track for Tumbler Ridge. Pump tracks are a great place for all ages and abilities to develop skills and confidence. This track is the only one of it’s kind in Northern BC and was built by Velosolutions and Canadian Ramp Company.
The ridge above town has 300m of elevation and our longstanding dream – that is IN PROGRESS! is creating a multi million dollar downhill trail network.
Our downhill trails attract major visitation and are often used for competitive events.
These trails are located very close to town and are a short ride from your backdoor.
All of our trail names piggyback off of the existing hiking trail name – The Bald Spot. You will get to trails named Mullet, Blowout, Buzzcut and Rat Tail.
To find this trailhead, head to The Bald Spot trailhead near the District of Tumbler Ridge water tower. To the left of the gate is our up trail, Buzzcut!
Our trails master plan is complete and features this map of viable trail routes on this ridge. Our next step is to work with Rec Sites and Trails BC to secure tenure on this area so we can begin development of these trails.
NOW OPEN! Tumbler Ridge Jump Park

This jump trail network consists of a Green, Blue and Black jump line, as well as a return up trail. These trails connect to the Interpretive Trail and are accessible from Mesa Place, or bikeable from the Visitor Center.
This was build by Axis Mountain Technical and Landmark Trailworks.
