Summary:
In the summer I ride this trail every day. It has a bit of everything, but if you are a freerider (in Kingston? really?) you will be disappointed. There is a lot of really technical, rocky and rooty stuff. You will end up on your ass unless you are really nimble. A few fast downhill sections, some nice single and double track, and even a small set of dirt jumps. Really a lot of fun if you can find everything, the trail is not marked at all. You can easily get lost, and there are often walkers and dogs, so be careful and be respectful.

Recommended Route:
Take Bath road to Collins Bay road, and make a right at the gas station. Go over the railway crossing and head down Collins Bay road to Taylor-Kidd. Make a left on Taylor Kidd, and head down 100-200 metres, just past the little bridge over the creek. To the right is one entrance, and there is another to the left. The right hand side has the dirt jumps, some fun single track through the woods and some fields, and some fun obstacles. The left side is far better though, if you stay on the trails close to the road there is some really great techincal stuff. If you go lower, the trails have been destroyed by idiot ATV riders. Once you get past the wrecked sections you find some really fun stuff.

Other recommended trails in the same area:
There aren't any. Fort Henry is closed, The Rideau Trail is for hikers only, and the only other I know of is on private property. Head to J & J and you can get access and a jersey for $100.

Summary:
Good trail overall, could use some signs or something to help riders get a direction of where the trail goes, there are lots of routes that will take you for 30 seconds before a dead end,
good trail with good gardens and some nice objects to show off your trials skill

Recommended Route:
if you find yourself at a river with a bunch of intersections, get out to taylor kidd blvd as fast and possible and cross the street, here you will find the fastest toughest and most fun trails, loaded with bugs though

Other recommended trails in the same area:
if you come to a field, turn around, dont try and look for something along the edges, theres nothing worth the time over there

Summary:
It's a great trail to hit right after work if you live in the area. Can't say if it's worth a drive over an hour but it is fun. Some good climbs and the rock gardens are great. Bring bug spray.

I'll give it an overall rating of for location and because it's a fun ride.

Recommended Route:
Not very well marked.... best to ride and explore. It seems to always look different when I go.

Other recommended trails in the same area:
In the immediate area Fort Henry. Anything else is a bit of a drive.

Summary:
Either I am a putz and found the wrong trail, which is rather unlikely, or this trail is not really much of a trail at all. Needing trail markers is an understatement. Unless you stay on the main doubletrack stuff, you will get lost fast. there are a lot of promising looking small singletrack areas but they disappear quickly. I mean I have followed clearer dear paths. Also there are a lot of people who like to walk their dogs there so be prepared. Rock gardens can be tough but thats about it. I would say an advanced beginner or intermediate level rider would be comfortable on it.

Recommended Route:
follow snipers directions, they are pretty good.

Other recommended trails in the same area:
Fort Henry. Not all that tough but fast and a shitload longer than Brawnyland
