Crusher Road - Sackville River

Average Rating:    (3.33 of 5)

No. of Reviews: 3

Fire road for the first 200 Metres or so, hang a left into some fun single track. Hang a left at the bottom of the hill for some roots, relatively dry easily followed trail. It winds along the Sackville River, has a wicked climb and fun descent, a short climb to the power lines and comes back on itself.

Summary:
This would be a hard trail for a beginner. lots of fun

Recommended Route:
The first route is the way to go. I think Shauns route is another trail all together. At the top of the hill, before a small store is an old ball field. The road leading to the trail is on the left. At the bottom of the hill,the trail is off to the left in the woods. (The road continues to the right but comes to a dead end. You can hike but can't bike. This way you will likely come accross a flooded part of the river it is rideable, the water on the right is deep.)
Another way down to this service rd. is off Park Lane Dr. cut right accross the ball field down a short path
go past the trailers to the bend in the road. Look for a path to the left. I recomended this route down for experanced riders only It is very steep. A the bottom of this hill you will turn left cross the flooded area (in the water stay to the right) ride to the start of the ascent, and the single track will be to the right. On this part of the trail it will seem to come to an end several times but it goes on and on. There will be several roads to the right but to follow the river trail stay to the left.

Summary:
start riding up the service road till you come to a sub power station.if you follow the trail to the right this will take you to the lucasville road.take note that you have to cross a small river which isn't so small in the wet season.theres a few hill climbs that can be challenging to the less experienced.this ride can take from 1 hour to 4hours depending on how many side trails you want to explore. be sure to take note of the offsprey nest and the possible siteings of dear coyote,and i've even seen bobcat on this trail.

Recommended Route:
take the 102 hwy from bedford to halifax,but stop at the gated roadway just as your onto the highway.this roadway takes you behind the bedford firing range which is off limits.

Other recommended trails in the same area:
try taking a left at the sub station,and go way into the wild.stay on the trail and enjoy the view.if your leaving the trail it may be wise to take a compass with you , and take out what you take in .have fun

Summary:
A little bit of fire road to start, nice rolling section along the river, several nice climbs and riding along the tops of ridges, not much root/rock, and very close.

Recommended Route:
See above, instructions should be enough for anyone.

Other recommended trails in the same area:
Jacks Lake/Sandy Lake trails (especially the newer stuff, it rocks), Wrandees, whopper dropper, urban stuff, etc.
