Summary:
Wow...I only had two hours (due to other commitments), and I rode up the main Jeep trail, and was blown away by all the off-shoots of SIngletrack. "Flowmedown" was a blast, and so much awesome trail out there. Bummed I didn't have time to do it all!

Recommended Route:
Straight up the Jeep trail and there are Singletrack offshoots everywhere! Many of them are labeled.

Summary:
Agree with other reviews. Lots of trails with varying degrees of skill required, but none too tough. I have ridden these trails a couple of times in winter... over ski-doo tracks and they are great fun at that time of the year as well.

Recommended Route:
You can get there from the Northeast & Maritime Gas Pipeline, from the Spider Lake Road but the best access (most fun) is off the Waverly Road, up Breeze Drive and then left on Belvedere or Lethbridge (can't remember which) Fire road trail starts at end of the street, turns to single-track as you approach the stillwater (you will have to keep your eyes open for the single-track trail). You cross the stillwater (you have to jump stones across the stream) and then make your way across a series of single-track and fire road trails across the Montague Mines Road and the rock quarry to Spider Lake. It's fun and challenging in spots, a good 45 minute ride and you avoid the traffic on the Waverly Road

Other recommended trails in the same area:
Burnside single track trails.

Summary:
Rode this on Friday, October 20, after it had poured a few days earlier, and was it ever soaked, with huge puddles (up to the crank and more) covering the trail at regular intervals. Lots of roots and rocks to keep you on your toes along the single track paths. I wold say that this is not for beginners, but medium skills instead. Nonetheless, it was great, and I came out of the woods on the Maritime and Northeast Gas Line pipeline trail on the shoulder of the 118 highway

Recommended Route:
Up the Spider Lake Rd. from the Waverly Road

Other recommended trails in the same area:
Stillwater Lake it good, as is Otter Lake (off the 103)

Summary:
Great trail. Easy to find .Rode it this weekend after a couple days of rain and it was great, a few wet spots but they were rideable. The number or trails to ride is almost endless. Some great fast fire roads. Something for everyone.
