Northgate Trails

Mountain Bikers enjoying Northgate


Lying about 3.5 hours Northwest of Winnipeg and an hour away from the Saskatchewan border, Northgate Dauphin is a 26km stacked loop multi-use trail network. These hand and machine-built trails are nestled alongside Riding Mountain National Park’s “North Escarpment” and pass through some beautiful wooded areas divided by small rivers.

Envisioned in the fall of 2017 by the Dauphin Derailleurs Cycle Club and Alex Man, the trail system was to play host to the 2020 Manitoba Summer Games MTB events and continue to draw recreational tourism to the area afterward. While plans became finalized, fundraising efforts by the club and cooperation with multiple landowners in the area got the project in motion. The trail system includes a pump track, a skills area, and jump lines.

The network is complemented by group areas, washrooms, and 4-season micro cabins built by local contractors. In summer, the trail system is used by locals from the surrounding area. It is quickly becoming a go-to destination for mountain bikers on the central Canadian prairies. In winter, it is regularly groomed by Wayne Bishop of 2 Wheel Revolution and members from the club and has even hosted fat bike races. The trails were carefully plotted to allow any skill level to get enjoyment out of their visit, and a hardtail mountain bike will be fine on most trails in the network.
