Assiniboine Park trails

Average Rating:    (3.15 of 5)

No. of Reviews: 13

All kinds of trails from flat narrow trails, to steep downhills by the bridge. Off some of the downhills you can ride on to drop offs that range from 2 feet to 5 feet. It is good for any kind of rider!

Summary:
I used to go to the monkey trails, too. And they're not the same as the walking/cycling paths. They were the dirt trails off the path closer to the river. They can get pretty swampy, but they were SOO much fun.

Summary:
I used to ride the Monkey Trails at Assiniboine Park almost every weekend when I was younger...that was a meeting place for all my friends...remember Devil's Dip ? Well I sure do what a crazy ride..I only did it once..to fast and dangerous for me...usually the older "kids" rode it...Back in those days we'd ride our bikes EVERYWHERE !!

Recommended Route:
Down Wellington Crescent and pick them up just past the railway bridge.

Other recommended trails in the same area:
Thought out the Assiniboine Park and then travel south from the park through the Assiniboine Forest. I believe every park in Winnipeg has Monkey Trails...BUT..they call them bike paths now...

Summary:
These trails are beautiful considering they are in the City of Winnipeg. Well maintained and easily assessed I recommend them for both young and old. The trail touches on a natural duck pond santuary, and has a lot of wild-life to see. Deer, ducks, and various bird species are but a few. Pack a lunch and bring your children you will really enjoy it.

Recommended Route:
West on Grant Ave from Kenaston, just past Canadian Mennonite University. There is parking on the left. The park has a big sign at the openning.

Other recommended trails in the same area:
Assiniboine Park.

Summary:
The monkey trails are pretty good along the south river bank. Last year I started to ride more in the forrest south of Grant Ave. There are some paved trails, but also some rough trails - no pavement, gravel or woodchips, just clearcut. I plan on checking it out some more this year. Bring your bug repellant!

Recommended Route:
Assiniboine Park & Forrest

Other recommended trails in the same area:
Wolseley, north of the river. The forks, heading north to Alexander Docks, and south to Churchill Dr and BDI.

Reviewed by: Guy , from Winnipeg

Summary:
Very bumpy, with soggy wood chips, decomposing. Gives your legs a great workout! Head south until you cross a ditch(very muddy at the best of times) and connect to the Harte trail. Usually dry even after a rain. Here you can build good speed, I someitme shit 35 km/h. Be aware of road crossings and idiot dirt bikers!!

Recommended Route:
Start at the parking lot for Assiniboine Forest. Head onto paved section, the move onto wood chip , then muddy soggy areas.
