Summary:
* Summary
The park is primarily for families and picnics, but some cyclists have morphed it to their liking. The park is fairly large and there are scattered paths. The air is clean and the trees and shade are plentiful. It's generally a good exercise and you can easily spend an hour or two in there.

* Paths
Paths are all over the place. They're not interconnected, so you'll dive into one, only to come back out onto the pavement and then back into another. I haven't seen any technical, but there are a few fallen tree trunks and branches that you need to navigate through. If you're a freerider, there's a nice 20 foot drop to test your courage =)

* Challenges
The biggest challenge will be finding the paths. Some are obvious, others are not. Some of the paths haven't been used for so long that it's partially bushed in. Sometimes you can just define your own path.

* Exercise
It's energetic otherwise I wouldn't be there. The trails are pretty straightforward, but there's a few hills to keep the heart pumping. Once you know the area you just move around really quick.

* People
People and families frequently walk or ride along the pavement (although it's not saturated), but no one ever takes the paths.

Recommended Route:
Head down Cedarcroft (it's south of Steels, head down Bathurst). You'll eventually see one of the entrances into the park. Stick to the right side, ride on the grass. You'll eventually see an opening to one of the paths. This I believe is the longest one in the park, so ride and enjoy. Once you're done, venture off and try to find the others.

Summary:
Very good for a 10 year old on a BMX. Park is crowded, noisy and trails are short. I do not reccommend it for adults, even if you are a beginner. Go North a little to the OAK RIDGES MORRAIN, (see review on this page). It is worth it. This trail is for a good Sunday family ride and picnic, but that is it.

Recommended Route:
Intersection of Steeles and Dufferin. The park is located on the East side of Dufferin about 400 meters South of Steeles.

Other recommended trails in the same area:
Oak Ridges Morrain. Bayview and Stouffville road in Richmond Hill

Summary:
Good for all skill levels. U can peacefully ride or do a 18 foot drop in the river - it's up to u. Since I can see the whole park from my windows I go there very often but if u live far away from it don't even bother. Lots of people and horses

Other recommended trails in the same area:
Jump out of your window
