Summary:
If your a serious rider than dnt bother with this small premadonna trail. What was once decent 5 years ago is now overgrown (northeast corner of park) and not worth the spider web eating it serves.
If your in the area Malden Park or Morton Terminal (Dainty Foods) is where its at.

Recommended Route:
None

Summary:
Brunet Park is an excellent trail for the area. Essex and Kent counties are totaly flat so there is not great opertunity for climbing exercies.

The trails at Brunet are represntitve of all skill levels, each of the three sections have a different focus on the skill set required to ride them.

The "novice" section is mostly twist and turns with a few root and log obsticles and a short off camber section. This is section directly to the south of the parking lot. This section is great to get the beginner used to manouvering through the trails with out bombarding them with a lot of technical based obstecles.

The front advanced section (to the North-East of the parking lot) has quite a bit of off camber, with some dirt piles and tight manouvering at the begining, then moves into a flater, faster section with some log obsticles and some drop offs. This section focuses on handeling skills with tight turns, off camber, log obsticles, and a few ditcehs and drops.

New riders beware this section can be confusing. if you take the wrong turn you may find yourself riding is circles.

The back advanced section (to the west) pulls it all together. This section demads good handleing skills along with the ablity to manuever through tight obsticels. There are tight turns and log obsicles along the entire circit, along with a couple of bridges and some drop offs. This section is tecnically less demanding then the front advanced section, but requirse a more evenly distiruted skill set.

Over all this is a very enjoyable set of trails to ride

Recommended Route:
Run through the Novice section, if you enter by the parking lot you will end up coming out to the open area of the park you will see a track that leeds to the back section. Head to the back and hit the back section. The best I can tell you have to drop in through the ditch, if you choose the proper rout you will exit there as well. When you get to the top of the ditch on the bush side keep to your left and folow the trail down and along the edge of the dranage ditch, just keep folowing the trail from there. When you finish with that section then head back toward the parking lot and enter the front section. There is a paved path that runs into the front section. Keep riding past the paved path and you will see a track in the grass follow it to edge of and down you go, the actual entrance to the trail will be up the paved path 10 feet on the right hand side, keep to your right as you enter and you should be able to find your way around from there. There are lots of exits to this section if you don't want to run the whole thing. Other wise you can end up where you started form.

Other recommended trails in the same area:
Malden Park and Spring Garden

Summary:
The trail is ok to ride. A good number of log obsticles. No climbs, some minor drop offs. My only problem with this course is that you won't want to go anywhere near it after its rained, for at least a few days. Half the trail is under water, and doesn't drain very well. Also, some trail end abruptly for seemingly no reason.

Recommended Route:
directions are fine

Summary:
This trail is sick. It is one of the best in Essex County by far. There are no real climbs or downhill sections, however there is a small hill in the center of the park that is ok, but nothing special. There are some fast sections, nice whoop-dy-doos and a few log rides. There are many switchbacks and some are fairly difficult as they wind between trees. Some sections are really technical, but if done slowly by the beginner its not too tough. Be carefull of the sections winding by the creek gorge..............or you just might find yourself in the 10 foot deep ditch. There are also a few drop-offs, but only a foot or two high, and there are paths around them if you dont want to attempt them. I wish the trails were longer, but i guess they are ok for what we have in essex county.

Recommended Route:
The description provided at the beginning is fine................the park is off Normandy Rd..........the sign to the park is hard to see, but you'll see a road, then a small sign saying Brunet Park if you look hard enough.

Other recommended trails in the same area:
Morton terminal, Malden, Seven hills (aka extreme deer run), Ojibway, Ginatcho trail (aka suicide hill).
