There are three bicycle trails in Algonquin Provincial Park. Trails range from flat packed surfaces suitable for children and families to rugged mountain biking experiences.

Old Railway Bike Trail

The Old Railway Bike Trail is a leisurely family bicycle trail during spring, summer and fall. During the winter, the trail is a multi-purpose winter recreation trail. For most of its 16 kilometre distance the trail follows the abandoned bed of the historic Ottawa, Arnprior, and Parry Sound Railway, opened in 1896 and decommissioned in 1959. The Old Railway Bike Trail runs from Rock Lake Campground to near Cache Lake.

Minnesing Mountain Bike Trail

The Minnesing Mountain Bike Trail is a steep, rugged mountain bike trail consisting of hilly, sometimes muddy, terrain filled with rock, roots and obstacles unsuitable for small children and unfit adults.

This trail is intended for experienced mountain bikers only. Hazardous sections containing mud, sand/soft soil, exposed roots, and rocky uphill and downhill terrain exist throughout the trail. The use of a helmet is recommended and caution be taken to avoid injury and equipment damage. Park visitors using this trail do so at their own risk.

Byers Lake Mountain Bike Trail 

A short mountain bike trail of 6.5 km (13 km round trip) and moderate degree of difficulty can also be accessed east of thKingscote Access Point. Once on the mountain bike trail, there is an interesting 150-metre side trail that provides access to Gut Rapids, which is a narrow scenic canyon on the York River.
