Carrick Tract

Average Rating:    (3.67 of 5)

No. of Reviews: 3

This trail is located in a very hilly, gravel woodlot that has very steep hills. The map in the parking lot show''s one single track trail with two double track sections, but there is now a second single track section. This whole trail design and layout is a pure IMBA text book application. Almost all of the single track has been bench cut and the switch-backs have been bermed up with proper rocks. You really must tip the hat off to the volunteers that built this trail, because you know there has been a lot of man-hours involved with the construction.

Trail Directions
Take County road #28 south from the town of Mildmay until you see a church on the west side of the road. This will be the Huron- Bruce boundry. Turn left (east) till you almost reach the second sideroad and there will be a sign pointing left (north). Once parked, take the trail west, with the map on the sign post, and follow this sweet trail until you get to the double track. Then turn right and keep looking to your left side for the next single track entrance. Follow this trail and eventually it will bring you back to the parking lot.

Summary:
Nice quick trail. Drove from Port Elgin (appx 50minute drive) to check it out and was a little disappointed in the length of the trail. Rode it in the opposite direction with no preference to relay to you, wound up packing up and doubling back to Brant track.

If I lived in Mildmay, I'd be thrilled to have it close to home but if you are coming from the south, make it a way point and drive another 20 minutes to Brant.

Could be enhanced with some small drops, step ups, ladders, etc.

Summary:
I rode this trail during a mini roadtrip in July/07
Carrick has great flowing singletrack, very little climbing / decending, very little technical challenge. All the singletrack ridden together is only about 6km, a good trail to go and hammer off a few laps after work or hit it up on the way some where like I did (on route to Brant Tract, it made a nice stop to wake up and stretch out the legs). If it was longer it would be much better.

Summary:
First of all imba, apart from using some of there principals had very little to do with this trail and the brant tract trail. Also they weren't built by volunteers either, it was a number of individuals who worked hard in different areas all year round to build these trails and got so little recognition. and if you wonder how I know all of this go to
www.mtbthebruce.com that is me on there. It feels great to do some thing nice and then watch imba get all the credit.
