Varied. Excellent for a workout if you ride the ski hill up and down a couple of times. BEWARE OF DOGS OFF LEASHES IN MAIN PARK AREA!!!! DOG-OWNERS ARE ANTAGONISTIC AND IRRESPONSIBLE HERE!!!!!

Trail Directions
Go south on Bathurst St from Sheppard Avenue, turn left (east) at first set of lights south of Sheppard Ave into the Park. Lots of Parking. Go down the ski hill if you're brave and wind your way through the trails beside the river in the valley (both sides, east side is technical). Go north under bridge also and look for foot-paths/trails which wind away from paved path. Cross into the Jewish Community Centre property on the west side of Bathurst and go to the north end by the river -- more trails start there.

Summary:
This trail is dead hard to find. I just marked the start with google and I hope that helps. The problem is that the trail head looks like you are skirting somebody's yard. Don't worry, though, it is a right of way. You will know you are on the right track if you see a trials/jump area. There is more past that but it is not a great trail - maybe 1000 metres.

Have fun anyways

Summary:
Great place to go to do some riding. Has lots of trials and ramps, someone even built a small bridge. I went riding today and it was pretty slippery cause it just rained. These trails are pretty good for intermedietes. You have to check it out. Also if someone wants to go riding send me an email cause right now I have noone to ride with, i'm 13.

Summary:
great XC trails on the west side. Go east side if you want some freeride! I don't know who, but someone has built a short bridge (like the ones in BC!!!) with a teeter-totter. Not much, but keep an eye on it, i've got a feeling that its gonna grow.

Recommended Route:
Approach from bathurst, enter the park and cross the field, find some tire tracks, head for the valley...

Other recommended trails in the same area:
the loop around the west side where the Jewish community center is.
