The Old Cascade Highway is good for mountain biking. It branches to the right just as you head south past the museom on Highway 22 and is part of the original Trans Canada Highway and the Dewdney Trail. It eventually connects with Christina Lake, 50+km and two major summits west. This road is an easy climbing grade with plenty of exciting turns and tremendous scenery looking down into Washington state. For the adventurous, go down to the Midnight mine. The Midnight Road branches to the left just past the 4km mark. The dirt road leads to a gas line and crosses it sharply downhill to connect with a powerline service road. This road parallels the gas line to the east back up to the old Cascade Highway past a beaver pond completing a 8km loop.

Overall, Cascade / Midnight Loop is the 16th most popular mountain bike trail of all 46 mountain biking rides in British Columbia. Several of the better mountain bike trails are nearby Cascade / Midnight Loop including Black Jack Nordic Trail System, Coyote Swamp, Drakes / Deer Park Loop, Kootenay-Columbia / Monte Cristo, Rubberhead Trail and Smugglers / 007Railgrade / Wagon Road Loop.
