Mountain Biking

Explore Camp Fortune’s cross country and downhill mountain bike trails!

Ideally situated in the Gatineau Park, Camp Fortune has over 20 km of extraordinary shared mountain bike, hiking and trail running trails located only 15 minutes from downtown Ottawa- Gatineau. Our trails offer a challenge for beginners and are best suited to intermediate and expert mountain bikers. The trails are a pay per use service and funds collected support the work done on the trails. Please purchase a season pass or day ticket on our online store. Your membership tag will be mailed to you. 

From late June to Thanksgiving Monday, we offer lift serviced downhill mountain biking at Skyline. Please note these trails are one way, and that is DOWNHILL! The lift spins Wednesday evenings in the summer and on weekends. A lift serviced downhill pass also includes a cross country trail pass.

The gnarly, sloped mountain biking trails on Skyline are not for the faint of heart. The downhill mountain bike trails at Camp Fortune undergo constant improvement. There are undulating trails for beginners, but most are best suited to intermediates and experts. Important to note trails are one way and that’s DOWNHILL!
