Fight Trail

Average Rating:    (3.92 of 5)

No. of Reviews: 13

first half of trail is tight brushy singletrack with lots of rock and short steep climbs and descents.Momentum is your friend. second half of trail is basically large exposed bedrock sections joined together by tight singletrack sections. Lots of drop-offs,ledges, and the inevitable short,steep climbs. Finishes off with a five minute rock garden section that leads past Purcells pond and out to Purcells Cove rd where you can then turn around or take the road back to Halifax.

Summary:
definitely the most challenging trail around halifax.it has everything you could want, and theres so much more potential.props to gord for the werk on gold! first time i rode it i hated it!i grew to love the challenge..the first "45 minutes of crap" are almost the best at times..fun fun stuff. the new section bridging the end of gords gold is good. i miss going in the correct way...definitely a love/hate trail..and the people at the end of colpitt lake rd are actually nice, just respect them and park @ sobeys or williams lake rd. i'll keep coming back

Summary:
whine whine whine relax and enjoy the trail the early singletrack is a non-issue as far as i'm concerned it gets the blood pumping and lets you get warmed up for when the fun begins. you may not go in and clean the whole trail and yes it's not for everyone but for the advanced rider it is a great place to push the envelope and increase your skill level. also because of all the granite it holds up well in the wet and god knows it wet around here alot. an other reason I like this trail is becuz it is so demanding it won't see the traffic that wrandee's has a good ride thats been beaten to shit

Recommended Route:
out of the school parking lot

Chad! Lighten up! You're cool and in the flo!
No dissin' intended.Who's giving you attitude? You want me to bust a cap in his ass? Anyway, yes, there is some walking involved. I bet that eventually it will be all rideable, even by the non-godlike masses. Just takes some time. Could somebody please ride a snowmobile through there so we can ride our bikes!!!

Recommended Route:
Stop off at Tim Hortons by the mall and then head in by the ball field

Other recommended trails in the same area:
Drive-thru at Tim's.

Summary:
Well, it would seem that the negative reviews of fight trail have struck a nerve. (one such review by myself.) Let me clarify my point - the stuff that is new and being constructed is very good! The ride in leaves a bit to be desired. And all you guys talking about rider skills - we all know that you guys are king and no-one can ride as good as you! Thats just understood! Maybe you guys could teach us how to ride! Anyway, enough with the war of words cuz it's all b.s. anyway- I didn't mean to insult anyone responsible for building fight trail! I have built some stuff myself and know first-hand the effort involved. I give props to the guys from the shop and their buddies doin' all the work. You know who you are! But I don't need attitude when I enter your shop, cuz I've been a good customer. I hope we can honestly all be cool! -Chad

I can't give it 5 stars, cuz of the hiking stuff(the stuff I'm not "good" enough to ride) but the man-made and new stuff deserves noting!
