East of Golden, the Mt. 7 Area has several mountain bike rides to and from the summit at 4,200 feet above town. The Summit Trail drops off from the back side of the peak and traverses the face with some steep, off-camber slopes and blind corners. Halfway down, pickup the blazing Erichs Trail singletrack. Then turn onto the classic 5K Trail for a rambling descent back to town along a ridge line with views of the Columbia Valley and the Dogtooth Range. On the Kicking Horse River side of the summit, the B-12 Trail is a fast steep descent from the peak down to the Golden Municipal Campground on the River.

Overall, Mount 7 is the 28th most popular mountain bike trail of all 46 mountain biking rides in British Columbia. Several of the better mountain bike trails are nearby Mount 7 including Red Rocks Loop Trail, Moonraker Trails Recreation Area, Dawn Mountain Trail, Golden Gate Canyon State Park, Red Rocks / Dakota Ridge Trails and White Ranch Open Space ParkCentennial Cone Open Space.
