Average Rating:    (3.86 of 5)

No. of Reviews: 69

Some 'technical stuff' which includes lots of rocks. A downhill run which is actually used for some downhill events. Some fast hardpack. A bit of it all. There is about a $3.50 charge for a trail pass. The area isn't well signed, but it doesn't have to be considering it is a limited area. (limited on all sides by physical barriers)

Summary:
What I like the most is the variety: easy for the family, single track for the adventurous type, hard climb for the daring ones, half decent couple of downhill sections. Might not be the most challenging but chances are you will find something you like in the 27km of trails. And being 10mins from home, hard to beat. Trails might not be best marked but you get used to them, head north and they all take you to the Kelso summit. Probably best for intermediate, enough for beginner, challenging at times for expert riders.

Recommended Route:
Summit parking, take the X-treem Trail to Cheaters Alley, then Rough Trade all then way and turn around.6.5km at a steady pace gets you back to the car in 30 mins., doable 5 time a week, back home in an hour

Other recommended trails in the same area:
Hilton Falls, lots of rocks, better if you want wider trails for entire family or rocky, more challenging

Summary:
Worse trails I've ever ridden. Even with a map, these trails are impossible to ride without stopping a million times to analyse the map. Plus really it is mostly double track with nothing interesting. There are two really short downhill loops there but more ridable with a downhill bike. Anyway I've ridden in Sudbury, Hardwood hills, Buckwallow, Blue Mountains, Hydrocut and Puslinch trails and Kelso is the suckiest trail ever!!!

Summary:
i just got back from mtn biking at Kelso ,and i must say it is worth the $6.50 for trail pass for the day , they have a lot of everything from beginner to advance , downhill to single track ,jumps and some bridges, and throw in some rocks, if ur looking to ride for the day or just few hours , this is the place , i seem to have lost my trail map , well check out lora;s run and rock garden , those are just a few, well enjoy the trails and remember your helmet and ride safe

Recommended Route:
check it all out , some trails crisscross with hiking trails , be curtice , and let the hikers know your coming through and that there are riders behind you , also let riders you pass know that u are alone or with other riders ,

Summary:
What a let down. Been to Hilton Falls across the highway a couple of times and the WCC Trail in the area and thought this place would be similar. Lots of traffic on the trails and not enough signage to indicate if there is a particular direction to ride or not so you end up getting 2-way traffic on single track all the time. Plus there are a lot of hikers too. Not very good flow, not enough technical, not good overall.

Recommended Route:
Goto the Steeles entrance so you are starting at the top of the escarpment.

Other recommended trails in the same area:
Hilton Falls; WCC

Summary:
Lots of variety for beginner and intermediate riders. The trails are well maintained. But there is only 16 km of them (published).
So there are some nasty sections, but overall the place is just moderate fun stuff.

I still give it a 5 overall for first time fun. I'll be back.

Recommended Route:
The only hard aerobic part is climbing the hill, and all the trails are on top of the escarpment.
Extreme trail if you want some danger. Couple of stupid bits (natural selection hehe).

Other recommended trails in the same area:
halton hills, but I haven't been.
