Charlottenburg Mountain Bike Area

Average Rating:    (4 of 5)

No. of Reviews: 7

Very rocky and uneven. The land is situated on a gravel pit so there are rock's everywhere. It makes the riding a very upper body experience. The land is not real hilly, but the trails weave back and forth up and down the hills. There's a couple of downhill sections that are not real long, but are very bumpy because of the uneven ground. Several ladder bridges have been created to add some variety, and more will be added. The trails are a work in progress. The land area is 241 acres, and less than half has been developed. More trails will be added in the fall of 2002 and into the future. The forest area is like a jungle.

Trail Directions
From the 401, exit at the Summerstown Road exit and head North. Continue following Summerstown Road until you get the McQuaig's Corners at the Kings Road. Summerstown Road now changes to Chapel Road and continues North. You should also continue North on Chapel road until you come to Caber Road (it's the second road, the first is Beaverbrook). Go right and travel about 1 km. You will see a sign on the right hand side of the road. It is on the ground, but will be replaced by a sign saying Charlottenburg Mountain Bike Area in late summer '02. Enter here and follow the signs.

Summary:
Other posters have described it well. Nothing too steep, but plenty of twists and turns, rocks and stunts to keep you working. Intermediate for sure but some gravel tracks for beginners too. Hoping to set up some regular rides and help organize some trail maintenance this summer (2009)... There is a great backbone of trails here that could use a little TLC. But come and check it out first, if you're a local rider you'll want to save this gem.

Recommended Route:
Go in and explore. Get lost. Awesome workout and fun riding.

Summary:
Great trail system for people who want to do a little of everything. Theres XC trails, there's very tight trails, there's stunts like skinnies and teethers, 246 feet of rock plated trail called Barbwire, 4 to 6 foot drops. Mostly everything has been updated in 2007 and 2008 should be an even better year. Come check it out if you have a chance!

Summary:
If you're looking to improve your xc skills, this the destination you've been praying for. I personally wouldn't describe this destination as intermediate. It's a liitle tougher than that. Especially if you decide to do the loop three or four times during the day. Then you begin to discover what words like endurance and challenge actually mean. This place is well worth the trip. The trails here have actually been planned and thought through with the added bonus of some excellent bridges, A frames and teeters. More kilometers are hoped for next Spring, but for what it's worth, this is some of the best, funnest singletrack I've done in a long while.

Recommended Route:
All of it.

Summary:
Worth the ride out to Cornwall. A real XC play ground. Loads of singletrack, great built stunts, and fun all around.. I can't wait to ride it in the summer when the leaves are all back on the trees! This is intermediate to expert XC. The Expert part would be all the stunts... the trail iself is not all that hard... intermediate for sure. You could also bring a beginner to ride. There is a good double-track which circles the trails... a little something for everyone! If you want to see what the trails look like, here are some photos and video: Photos: http://www.mtbkanata.com/Photo_Galleries/Cornwall/index.htm Video: http://www.mtbkanata.com/XC_video.html

Recommended Route:
This trail is fun... Just go and you can choose any loop you like.. I would suggest you ride the teeder from the North though... :)

This is the only one I know of in/near Cornwall.
