Interwoven into the hoodoos and rugged, dusty cliffs of the South Saskatchewan River are the Redcliff mountain bike trails. In fact, it is these cliffs – many red from oxidization – from which the town of Redcliff gets its name.
The trails here are Southern Alberta’s answer to Moab. They are built and maintained by a group of volunteers and national trail-building experts and are free for all to ride.
There are two points of entry to these trails: via a walking path next to Redcliff Riverview Golf Club or after a tough-but-rewarding ride along Medicine Hat’s Burnside Trail.
This is badlands mountain biking terrain at its finest.
