Long Description:
The Phoenix-Thimble Mountain trail system consists of 18 km of well-maintained single-track trails and 8 km of gravel road. The trails are popular with mountain bikers, hikers and horseback riders.

Although the trail surface is well maintained and relatively smooth throughout, the difficulty of the trails ranges from easy to moderately difficult, depending on the steepness of the slope.

The trail system starts at 1000 m elevation, and winds eastward up a ridge to the summit of Thimble Mountain, at 1300 m. Upon reaching the top of the open rocky knob of Thimble Moutain you will be treated to panoramic views of the rolling hills and valleys of the Granby River Valley, Grand Forks, Wilgress Lake, and mountains to the north.
