Some gradual Hills. Some technical. Quite few log jams and a great rock pile. Good luck on "killer hill" in the ravine. Trails are marked during summer months but arrows disappear during off season. Some riders use trails year-round. Watch for hikers and dogs.

Summary:
Love this trail. Fairly new to riding dirt after years of road riding and this trail fits the ticket. Great way to learn confidence, build your cardio and have a great few hours out. I don't live too far away thought this was one of the better trails locally. Agree it is a lot like a mini Hardwood without the extra 30 minute drive north. Definitely worth a look and ride.

Other recommended trails in the same area:
Durham, Albion, Hardwood Hills.

Summary:
Didn't know it was so close to home till I read the web site.
The place is pretty big, lots variety-cross country/ up and down hill/ bridges/ boulders/ log pyramids etc. For the intermediate or novice rider it was pretty good as well cheap (free)!!
Downfalls?-- trails weren't that well marked cause trees fell down, but not too many people were there so going the wrong way wasn't and issue.
Highly recommended for the fun runs, but if you get really far in all the way to the ravine it is a KILLER up hill.

Recommended Route:
Trails not named or marked well.

Other recommended trails in the same area:
Hardwood-but it costs 12.00/day

Summary:
Had to contribute a review. This trail is not spectacular, but is conveniently located between the city and the north...good for 45 minute fun on the way home from work. Switchback on the back hill drives me nuts...always get stuck on the last one ascending! This is a great trail for beginners and fine for intermediate riders who need a quick run.

Summary:
I like this trail a lot. Sometimes the race loop is a bit short and/or easy but it's usually fun. If the loop doesn't include the back section (and youre not enjoying the loop) leave the loop and explore the ravine but watch out for people going the opposite way than you. Be kind to hikers and joggers. There are hunting blinds in this forest so Id watch out for crazy hunters during hunting season. Dont be an idiot! Ride the marked race loop the way the arrows are pointing!

Recommended Route:
the race loop set up is usually good.

Other recommended trails in the same area:
