Summary:
I,t was a beatiful day yesterday and desided to go for a rip. I went to bolton to try out a new trail.The reviews were good for this trail so why not give it a try.I,t started out okay with a few bends inclines, and some logs to roll over.Marked with white paint on the trees so you don,t ride off the trail.Unfortunatley the down side of this trail is that you come to a set of stairs not once but many times, also you bump into many people hiking and walking and bird watching. What this means is that you find that your off your saddle quite frequently. It's a good trail for walkers but I do not recomend this trail for mountainbikers,pretty boring.Been riding for many years and hit many trails and come to learn that you can't mix mountainbikers with walkers. Not only It's not safe but also not very enjoyable.This trail should be rated one star because It's a nice walk.

Other recommended trails in the same area:
Take a 15 to a 20 minute car ride to coulsons hills in bradford.Good trail for amateur and expert. A very good learning trail to practice your mountain bike ride. A designated trail for bikes only, with no interuptions.

Summary:
Single track fun but expect to dismount a few times. This is the HVHTA trail (Humber Valley Heritage Association) and they are rather anti-mountainbike - to the point of proclaiming its illegal (yet I couldn't find any local bylaw other than all trails in this area are multiuse anyway). I suspect this animosity is largely because there had been a number of disrespectful riders along this trail in the past who didn't realize that this was a managed trail (because it sure didn't look like one!) That said, I've never been challenged on this trail and always give approaching hikers the right-of-way and bell a long ways off or when going around blind corners. Standard stuff.

Recommended Route:
Start at the bottom of Glasgow Road and got all the way up to the end at Duffy's Lane. Or, start at the top and come back down. Either way its a good ride.

Other recommended trails in the same area:
There are some trails in the Cold Creek Conservation area - the part that runs south of King Road down to Kirby Road east of Albion Vaughan. These are not maintained trails and not overly challenging but fun nonetheless.
