Summary:
Aside from the abundance of community hikers and family bikers, this trail is pretty good for straight trail riding. Some of the riverside trails are scenic and good if you want a spot to rest part way through riding. These community trail sections are great for any rider of any age.
The upper single track trails that criss cross between smaller unworked sections of the community trail are great for the more experienced riders. An intermediate rider will have few problems getting over the occasional log obstacle, but an inexperienced rider may be stopping every so often to put their foot down and lug over the logs. These trails are great to loop back through taking endless routes for as long as you like. Just be sure to watch out for pedestrians, as it is a popular spot for families to go.

Recommended Route:
From the main parking lot keep to the trails between the road and river heading towards Connestoga College area. I take the community trail all along the river passed the water treatment plant, then head up the steep road there and return on the grid of single trails and community trails. This loop doesn't take too long, but it's a good mix.

Other recommended trails in the same area:
Ottawa street trails, Hidden Valley

Summary:
Look, it ain't perfect, right? No freeride, no half hour downhills, no can't-ride-it tech stuff. But hey, it's all about old school XC trail bootin', so the faster you go, the better it gets, you've got to hang it out a little. Better than Chic, 'cause you can ride in the forest all the time, better trails (that's real trails, not skid bridges and balance beams) than any of the freeride places. Okay, so a beginner can ride it, most of it (though not well), but like I said, the faster you go, the sweeter the singletrack gets. Then it also gets dangerous, which is part of the fun. More trails going in all the time. Bottom line is, if you're a fatty freerider on some soft city dualie, stick to the 'Cut and Tech Ec'. If you're fit, this is more fun than Chicopee or Dryden or anything else in this area and has better dirt trails from a technical perspective. No, it ain't perfect, nothing is, this side of Vancouver probably, but if you live in Waterloo Region, this is the best (overall) place you're going to find to ride. Some places may be better in small parts, but the whole dang thing is sweet at H.Wat. I'm going to p**s you all off and give it a perfect score, 'cause I'm not going out to BC anytime soon, and nothing round here can top shaggy old H.Wat. Plus, why is it a good ride if you wreck your bike and end up in traction? Sounds like a baaad ride to me. Come back to reality boys and girls.

Recommended Route:
Aha, that's a secret. Don't forget the Wat Regional Agreement Forest (the piney place by the cemetery)and dig the new crud plant bypass. You really need to hook up with some local hotshoe to show you the route & direction, so you're not goin' up where you should be goin' down, you know? Helps you find all the hidden sections, too. Stay off the community trails, unless crossing over to the next singletrack section. if you like going downhill, please watch for people coming up, some of us actually like to climb. Get out on a weekday, or early/late on a weekend to avoid the pedestrians.

Other recommended trails in the same area:
XC? Huron Natural Area, Chicopee, Dryden Tract, parts of Natchez & GRVtrail, Hidden Valley, Steckle for your lunch hour ride if you don't want the risk, Pinnacle if you only have five minutes to ride and live in the area (haha!). Might be some new place out near Paris, but I haven't ridden it yet.

Summary:
This trail is pritty good if you are going to teach a beginner or if you are just going to have a good time. This trail mainly only has one technical down hill. It has alot of singel trace. If you want to go mtbing and you don't want that technical stuff than this is for you. Try it out you'll like it.

Recommended Route:
same as the other guys

Other recommended trails in the same area:
chicoppee ski hill, hidden valley, adams run.
