Summary:
Depends on the type of biking you like. The lanes are very tight in areas and flow very well. Obstacles & technical sections can be found, Speak with a local. The area is so large you can find yourself lost at times, so be careful. Easily a full day of riding with out trail duplication

Recommended Route:
Unsure of the names, but a great variety and lots of fun. Not sure why you would pay to ride 5mins away when you could get your fill of most everything here.

Other recommended trails in the same area:
copeland, springwater/Midhurst

Summary:
Imagine Albion Hills without maintenance for 2 years and that is what this place is like. Moderate hill work but its short and not very technical - fast and flowy with lots of brush on the trail edge.

The trails are not signed very well and I am told the Ganaraska Trail goes through this place and you end up riding on it. Its a very big tract though that stretches further north and is good for a few hours of riding.

Still Hardwood Hills has better trails especially if you are into cross-country. If you are more into longer day rides where you explore on your own this is a pretty good place for that.

Other recommended trails in the same area:
Hardwood Hills; Copeland Forest

Summary:
First time out to the 8th line and had a great time. Some fast spots and lots of technical turning. Some pretty good short and steep climbs but over all lots of fun.
Why pay to ride your bike at Hardwood hills when 5 minutes away you can ride for Free.

Recommended Route:
Red and Green

Summary:
A bit of everything, lots of tight and twisty single-track. Be careful and watch out for stumps, branches, debris on the trails - it is not maintained regularly.

If Anyone can pm me a map of the place, that would be great.

Recommended Route:
Green and White trails.

Other recommended trails in the same area:
Hardwood Hills and Horseshoe Valley

Summary:
Not too impressed. Parking is poor. The day I was out saw hikers, dirt bikers/ atv's. Lots of poison ivy in summer and fair bit of double track. Hardwood hills is a better bet down the road.

Recommended Route:
??

Other recommended trails in the same area:
Hardwood Hills on Old Barrie Road. Another hour to three stages, Collingwood.
