This is one of the most demanding trails around Brockville that I know of. It has lots of double track and many sections that are technical single track. There are lots of fast downhill sections and lots of up-hill sections, there are also lots of flat sections where you can gain lots of speed. On the trail you will encounter some logs, drops and river crossings.

Summary:
As stated previously, this is an excellent trail offering many levels of terrain. Be prepared for some intense climbing sections, though there is always an easier route if you're willing to look. :) The downhills are fun... a couple smooth flowy sections, some VERY technical... stream crossings, drops, ladders, bridges... a new(ish) jump track built by the Brockville Freerider Society(we are currently only a society by name, lol... nothing official yet...) Not huge, but a full minute of rippin fun if you race it. It is very easy to find yourself and your friends spending a couple hours there, as every "feature section" has a couple options and a bypass if you're feeling too slow or too fast.

Recommended Route:
Start by heading up the gravel to the top of the hill... the trail clearly opens up in a little cleared out spot on the left... if you want back country/all mountain, take the first right turn... if you want to play around on the jumps stay to the main track and follow it to the first berm after the big jump and the little step up, go over the berm and ur on the backside trail with the drops and a few more jumps... if you follow the berm you are on a nice single track with berms and pumps... follow your chosen path from then on and enjoy the ride!

Summary:
technical and rocky with lots of short ups and downs. this trail can punish you and your bike. it starts off with a nice flows bit of single track to warm you up before things started getting really hard. more and more drops are being built and harder line scouted. this is by no means a free ride trail but aggresive xc on 5-6 inch bikes would probably best describe it.

Recommended Route:
every bit of single track you can find. trails are not marked but everything is good. then when you hit lyn road turn right and go up to the second side and ride some more awesome single track.

Other recommended trails in the same area:
blue mountain (north of mallory town), limerick, calabogie, camp fortune, kanata lakes

Summary:
One word....SURPRISE!!! No chance to rest because a drop or steep slick climb awaits every corner.

A good trail to prepare yourself for the rock garden at 3 stages in Collingwood (next wknd)

Recommended Route:
Drop in at the end of the road at Black and decker....take the jeep trail in and merge right for a small and gentle climb and take the first left onto single track for a warm-up. You will loop back to where you are in about 5 minutes and warmed up and ready to hit the gnarly stuff. Been there once...rode for about 2.5 hours and just got my bearings once I left. Will go and meet a local next ride. Not a trail to bring your wife just getting into the sport or someone who fears a little blood.

Other recommended trails in the same area:
Good ole fort henry and the trails north of Hwy two are treating this new Kinston resident well. A good group of local riders as well....watch out for the yahoos without helmets....this is a first for me to see on the trails, but they are there....I just don't get it....must be something residing in their water bottles.

Summary:
The Brockville stuff provides an excellent example of what true trail-biking is all about. The first section before Lynnn road has plenty of lung busting climbs and equally crazy descents and is plenty rocky with some excellent singletrack thrown in. The second section just past Lynn road features some of the greatest singletrack I've ever had the privelege to ride. Be forewarned: this isn't a "free-ride" destination. Leave the big-bikes at home and bring your XC rigs.

There are at least 50kms of single and doubletrack out there. a typical ride for me is about three hours. I would consider these trails to be somewhat advanced from a physical fitness perspective. But if you've got the lungs Brockville is a "must ride" destination".
