Riding straight for the blast zone, the trail to the Plains of Abraham warms you up with a good climb into the trees. Passing above Ape Canyon, the Plains starkly contrast with the surrounding forest that somehow escaped 1980’s scorching eruption. Traveling along a rocky, rolling moonscape, the Plains of Abraham Trail will offer a challenge to mountain bikers of intermediate and lower skill levels, but the views are incredible to behold.
