A wide variety of trails, but mostly single track. Some challenging parts as well as some twisty technical ride through forest. very scenic (trail winds around guelph Lake) and some climbs. A few fast loops for the rushed.

Summary:
These trails are on Grand River Conservation Authority land. Earlier this year the GRCA decided that, for insurance reasons, all cyclists using these trails must be members of GORBA (The Guelph Off-Road Bicycling Association). After negative public feedback, the GRCA rescinded this requirement. All cyclists are again welcome to ride on these trails. GORBA played a significant role in getting this requirement overturned. The trail remains multi-use, but signs will be posted soon reminding all users that the trails are primarily designed for off-road cycling. GORBA will continue to perform all of the maintenance on these trails, so if you ride these trails often you can show your support by joining GORBA anyway.

Very sweet corse with many different routes and you gotta love the half pipe like section that is visible from highway 24. Sweet trails, ride then almost every week in good conditions.

Recommended Route:
Along Highway 24 For The Sweet Jump Section (Just Before Guelph)

Summary:
Nice ride. tons of hills, tight turns, jumps, over all wicked trail

Recommended Route:
Start at riverside park and cross over the highway and ride to the other highway and cross over into the trails. Doesn't matter where you go on this trail. Its all good. Some places are really hard and some are really easy. very long trail system
