this is a new trail set within the "Waterloo Hydro Cut". great leg burning, technical trail with a few simple bridges and log bumps. the burn comes from the numerous steep uphill switchbacks followed by tight -turning short downhills. great workout trail!

Summary:
excellent technical, tall and small up and down hill, well marked (be careful if you go into extended hydro cut as it is not marked and a huge maze)

Recommended Route:
I entered from Snyder Rd E (Petersburgish) Yellow Barn private road which proved to be difficult finding returning from Frankenstein (first time in the hydro cut). Enter Glascow Street http://www.waterloocyclingclub.org/home.asp

Summary:
not to worry, the bridges are all intact, and the loop is in great shape. there's finally a directional sign (counterclockwise) at the beginning of the loop as well, seeing as some lazy riders were taking the easy way around.

The Hydro Cut is getting better by the month this year.

Summary:
Well it's a good loop, however most recently there was a city worker threatening to call the police and charge us with tresspassing. Anyways he was ripping out all the bridges that cover small creeks.
