Trail Directions
401 to Guelph line, up Guelph line about 1 or 2 km, look for small driveway on the right. I don't think that this is the official way into Hilton Falls but it's the way that we took in when we rode there in the winter and we had to ride our bikes across frozen water to get in.

Summary:
Humbling. The green trail (Expert) is very rocky and technical; expert x-country riders only. The brown and blue trails are excellent and fun intermediate x-country trails. Very flat with the occasional rocky, technical sections. A salute to those who have been building in there.There are some great trails and rock obstacles, but there are some sketchy ladder constructions (check them out first). Notes: these trails are way better dry. After rain it gets very muddy and all the rocks make it very slippery. Also, bring bug spray and a compass (or patience). Brown trails are not well marked and lead into non-Hilton Falls trails. Great trails overall. Another salute to all those that can do the green trails.

Other recommended trails in the same area:
Kelso, Waterdown, Waterloo Hydro

Summary:
Very extensive trail system. Plenty of single track. Could easily ride around for hours...

I found that the trail system isn't very well marked as Kelso. The trail map looks easy to follow. I ended up on Guelph Line (I think) and rode back to the main entrance.

I know it's a conservation area, but they need to do a better job of actually marking out the trails. Maybe I'll be more familiar with the area after I've ridden the trails a few times.

I managed to find "Bent Rim" off of the main trail. In my opinion you cannot walk let alone ride this trail. I'll avoid this area on my next trip.

Recommended Route:
Couldn't tell you. I got lost!!!

Summary:
Fairly well mapped area with large double track loops, and single track off-shoots.
Started off with some of the more moderate trails, CM Rocks, Wally & The Beav, which was a great introduction to Bent Rim.
Wow wow. There are some really tough technical sections. Rocks, rocks and more rocks but overall a blast - and long - My legs got bent! My only complaint was it didn't have enough elevation change, the place is pretty flat. But the terrain is wicked.
I didn't find many skinnys or other man made stuff as one poster commented. Maybe they got removed?
Do not attempt Bent Rim unless you can easily and comfortably do the other trails without bailing.

Recommended Route:
Not sure, I was just following my nose.

Other recommended trails in the same area:
Kelso. You can get more speed and air here due to downhills and man made stunts.

Summary:
This is pretty close to the textbook definition of freeriding. If you are planning on riding XC here, you will be bored or overwhelmed. Agreed there is no intermediate stuff here. Hard stuff will scare away newbies becuase it will be a lot of hike-a-bike and the double track is well, doubletrack. There s almost no doubletrack in here that isn't paved. IMO - Paved doubletrack is to take a quick break in between technical sections, and for hikers. If you like freeriding challenges... stunts, rocks, roots, bridges, jumps, skinnies, creek crossings, you name it... this is the best place for many miles in any direction. There is gobs of sweet singletrack in here. I have been riding here for 9+ years and will never get tired of it, ever.
I also don't think I have riddin it all, it's that big. I'm surprised it doesn't have a higher rating, however some overwhelmed XC folks put their 2 cents in and it is obviusly out of their league... for XC, go across the street to Kelso!
NOTES - Parking in main lot is $8 or so, season's pass available for around $80. Other entrances (not to be mentioned since it is against park policy to enter park other than through main gate) to park are free. Park is offically closed to MTB's in winter, but doesn't stop anyone. Trails are well marked, but easy to get lost on, travel with a trail map, a GPS, a cellphone or someone who's been there before or you WILL get lost.

Recommended Route:
Wally and the Beav, Perry's Portage, Ridge Trail, Bent Rim, 5 Bridges, 1999, Improbable, Bog'd Up, Stunt Trail, Boy Scout Trail, Christmas Trail, Boundary Trail, they're all great.

Other recommended trails in the same area:
Kelso, Puslinch, Kitchener Hydro Cut, Waterdown, Dundas Valley

Summary:
This by far is my favorite trail in the area! Very technical, with rocks everywhere! Heaven! Hilton offers a lot for all different skill levels. Novice riders can party on the fun loopy stuff while the advanced and get rippin on the nasty stuff! Try the Bent Rim and all the intermediate (HA!) side trails. A lot of the Bruce Sides are fantastic fun as well.

Simply put this trail is like a full body workout! Don't get lost in the Wandering Lynx....

Recommended Route:
Usually start with Bog'd Up, CM Rocks, Wally and the Beav, 5 Bridges. Party on some side Bruce trails then finish with a workout in Bent Rim.

Other recommended trails in the same area:
Kelso is pretty good (not nearly as fun!), Puslinch (Twin Ponds), Hydro Cut, Guelph Lake
