Summary:
Great XC singletrack ride. Trail flows well and is fast, not much technical challenge though, just a few bits here and there to keep you alert. No BIG climbs to worry about, just a couple of short steep ones to make you breathe hard. Its a pretty sweet ride!

Summary:
This trail has a great mix of fast and flowing singletrack as well as some very technical sections (rock gardens, steep downhills, rooted climbs). The trail is great from Hardy Road to the Powerline Road, after that it dissappears. Its about 8km point a to b, makes for a great afternoon/weekend ride. I highly reccomend this trail to all XC riders. This trail has great flow and is easily accessed as well as being a blast to ride. Check it out if your in the area.

Recommended Route:
Park at the Trans-Canada trail entrace on hardy Road and ride up the road (less than 1 km) to an opening on the left. Go in here and follow the trail to Powerline Road. From here you should turn around and get back to the start because the trail effectivly ends.

Other recommended trails in the same area:
Barker's Bush (Paris Lion's Park)

Summary:
I would never bike this trail again. It was so bumpy and I fell off my bike and broke my arm. I would suggest little children not ride this trail due to all the bumps and tree stumps in the middle of the trail. If you like getting hurt defintly ride this trail.

Recommended Route:
Not Hardy Road Trail.

Other recommended trails in the same area:
Stick to canoeing!

Summary:
Not as many drop offs as stated! Nice home made teeter totters and board walks! Mainly made by close friends of mine! Rough parts are and excellent source for fun if your into alterrain riding! Beware of bike damage (eg. bent rims) I have had great experiences with this trail! Highly recomended for amateur bikers seeking a thrill!

Recommended Route:
(bike only) Enter Wilks dam, carry on the s c johnsons wax trail.. stay on for about 2 km and you enter the unmarked trail underneath the footbridge eventually reached!

Other recommended trails in the same area:
An unmarked trail at the end of grandvalley is a close by downhill and alterrain bikers dream!

Summary:
This is a great trail. Brantford has made a lot of improvements over the years and linked up to the Paris to Brantford Rail Trail. The majority of the trail is single track going through the bush along the river. Logs, bridges and steep inclines make it a real challenge. This is my favorite trail that I grew up on as a kid. Have Fun!

Recommended Route:
On Hardy Road, past the Golf and Country Club, Part way up the next hill on the left there is an entrance in the bush. It is hard to find cause it is not marked but you will see a trail. Get in an easy gear cause it goes up hill right away.
