The brand spankin’ new Millennial Trail Expansion is open and ready to be shred!
The Millennial Trail Expansion, three loops totaling 5.8kms of all-new mountain biking trails branching out from the base of RED Mountain, is now open for riding. This joint effort between RED Mountain Resort, The Kootenay Columbia Trail Society (KCTS), Columbia Basin Trust, BC Rural Development, and Tourism Rossland hits all the notes from Beginner to Expert and will only add to Rossland’s reputation as Canada’s true MTB Mecca.
The extension encompasses a total of 5.8kms of new trails with a focus on flow, fun, and variety. There is a 2.2km climbing trail to the top, a 1.4km XC loop connecting from the mid-point, as well as various connections to and from existing Paydirt trails. The crowning glory might just be Dragon Tail, the 1.8km “bike park style” flow trail descent that consists of an advanced upper section and a more intermediate lower section. Countless features are spread through Dragon Tail: step downs, step ups, rollers, a variety of different styled berms, table tops, hips, you name it, and you’ll probably find it!

Come on out to RED and experience your first laps on these epic new trails. Whether you grab a spot at the base of RED with your own private hot tub or make your homebase in the heart of Rossland, just a 5-minute drive from the mountain, you can’t go wrong.
