Yoho National Park has turned old fire roads into safe rides for mountain bikers. Families enjoy both the flat and winding Kicking Horse Trail and the much longer Old 1A Highway; a paved road leading to the Great Divide. Road riders may enjoy the journey to Takkakaw Falls, one of the largest and most accessible waterfalls in the Rockies.
