Very firm doubletrack x-country ski trails with numerous single track sections veering off along the way. Weave in and out from one to the other thru lovely mixed forest. Work thru the single track then exit onto the double to get cooled off! Warm-up hut/shelter and comfort stations at various junctions. Trails exceptionally well maintained ( met owner out with leafblower cleaning trails one day!!) with trails for every skill level. Campground and store nearby.

15K loop of hard-packed double track ski trails connected to a series of 17 singletrack sections of varying length and difficulty. Lots of choice here, with singletrack ranging from fast and smooth, to downright nasty! Beginner sections include: Eager Beaver, Border Run,Pine Pitch, Short&Sweet. Intermediate sections include: Cliffhanger, Moose Mayhem,I'll Be Buck, Bad Pit, Missing Link, Loam Rider etc. More difficult technical and fitness singletrack includes: Bear Bluff, Do Drop In, Toad Twister, Weasel, and Spur Line. Beautifully maintained trails featuring bridges, rocks, mud, roots and water for those who enjoy the more serious side of the sport; but still offer plenty of beginner style riding to.

Summary:
Something for everyone, especially those who love the Canadian Shield. This place never disappoints me. There are more trails for experts than beginners, but there is LOTS for beginners and everyone in between. The signage is excellent. The bathrooms are so clean. And the parking lot is a great place to have a little hang, chat and chill after your ride. Bring bug spray, but I noticed they left some in the comfort station I passed on the outskirts of Mohawk trail (June 17th, morning).

Recommended Route:
Anything with 3-4-5 hooves. There are no duds here.

Summary:
Wow insane fun!! The whole systems links nicely and very easy to find yourself on all ends of the map in what seems to be no time.. Just cause your having so much fun.. But be careful of the 4 and 5 hoof trails not for the faint of heart. Especially the ones that are noted to be a short distance; this seems to up the intensity dramatically. A great mix of the canadian shield rock an forest trails..

Recommended Route:
dont really remember the trail names but 1 to 3 hoofs are a sweet rides, that generally flow very nicley..

Other recommended trails in the same area:
7th of Oro, Springwater, Horseshoes Copeland forest

Summary:
Rode this on the weekend. Great ride all around. Very technical in areas, but lots of fun. Great variety, allow you to mix and match trails of varying difficulty to make your own single track route off the main connection roads (dual track). Definitely recommend. The owner was very friendly, and went over what the trail had to offer in detail. Very much worth the $10.

Recommended Route:
All

Summary:
A well maintained trail system made up of a variety of difficulty levels and lenghts. They all connect back onto main fire roads. All were a great ride but a little short before you have to connect back to the fire road. Some nice canadian shield rock trails.

Summary:
OMG! Does X-Country riding get any better than this? I'm sure not! Wow, wow, wow! Hats off to the folks at Buckwallow. I recently got back from Moab, Utah, and I can honestly say that some of the trails (#16, for example) are as good as any sections I rode in Moab, including the Slickrock Trail and Porcupine Ridge. Of course, you can't beat the views in Moab, but that's another story...

Anyhow, Buckwallow rocks! Thank you for a great afternoon of riding!

Recommended Route:
Do everything! But those five-hoof loops are really, really hard. Too much for me. But gimme a four-hoof loop and I'll play all day! Great slickrock-like challenges. Love it, love it, love it! Also check out #11 and I think #13?

Other recommended trails in the same area:
Three Stage, Hardwood Hills, Don Valley, Albion Hills
