West Fraser's Hinton Wood Products (HWP) Division, in cooperation with the Hinton Mountain Bike Association, spearheaded a project to map and add signage to two very popular local mountain bike trail systems. They can be accessed from the town of Hinton – the Happy Creek Trail System and Jack’s Trail System.
Happy Creek Trail System is a series of connecting singletrack trails with a wide range of options for all skill levels. Rolling terrain and an exciting mix of roots, sidehills, climbs, stunts, boardwalks and viewpoints make this a local favourite.
Jack's Trail System is a beautiful (primarily singletrack) trail that slowly and gradually gains elevation until you reach the furthest point from the trailhead. The trail is then almost entirely downhill back to your original starting point.

Note: Most of the hiking trails in the Hinton Forest Management Area are open to cycling. There’s also an extensive network of old logging and mining roads in the Hinton Forest Management Area that offers challenges for all skill levels.
