Explore the Saasak’ Hill Trails, a hiking and mountain-bike trail system near Gitwinksihlkw that leads to a stunning panorama of the lava beds.

The 8km trail network – opened to the public in 2021 – offers nine mountain bike primary, non-motorized trails through coastal temperate rainforest. Riders of all abilities will find plenty of progressions, berms, jumps, and some of the best flow trails found in Northern British Columbia. The trails also serve as an out-and-back hiking route to the viewing platform above the lava beds. For maps, photos, and the full report, check out Trailforks.
