Burr Oak Trail

Average Rating:    (4.4 of 5)

No. of Reviews: 10

Burr Oak is Birds Hill's newest trail and has been designed exclusively for mountain bike enthusiasts. Lots of tight turns, surprising uphill and downhill sections on dirt and sand and interesting scenery make this a great ride. Approx. 4.5 K. A new section has just been added (Oct 2003 - 1 K) that is especially challenging - numerous logs to jump, hairpin turns and tight squeezes. One of Birds Hill Parks best kept secrets.

Summary:
Anyone who says this trail doesnt have flow is nuts. Run the proper tire pressure, learn how to corner and this trail is amazing. Perfect mix of tight corners, fast corners, s turns, flat straight sections, out of the saddle climbs ect. Great trail for learning to maintain speed and focus in technical sections while tired. Also a great trail for intermediate and mid level riders looking to hone their skills.

Summary:
It was a decent trail, but lots, and lots of poison ivy!! Wear long pants and socks, and have a can of replant as i was covered in horse flies, mosquitoes, and wood ticks. I still had a great time.

Summary:
As described by others, this trail is packed into a tight space so very rooty, a few sections with rock gardens. Technical challenge comes from all the tight turns between trees. You can't really go fast through most of the trail due to the tight turns and two-way track. One short flowy section exists. Not mentioned yet are the sandy sections. Due to nearby sand dunes, thick sand exists in several places including on one hilly section. To appreciate the trail, I think it needs to be viewed as a skill building opportunity. Has a mix of conditions not found everywhere.

Summary:
2012 started on march 18. some snow but excellent condition. It's usually perfect till mid November. Serpentine climbs and straight downhills. High speed straights. Just did my record speed 32km/h this weekend. At the start of the season cardio is your limit. Later the skill would be holding you back. Difficulty level increases with higher speed. So it could be high difficulty level 5.

Recommended Route:
Go both ways. Serpentine downhills, straight uphills. Whole trail takes another skill set going other way.

Other recommended trails in the same area:
trails along rivers in Winnipeg. Seine river under CN rail. Churchill trail on Red. Trails on both sides of Assiniboine river.
