Laurel Creek Trail

Average Rating:    (1.67 of 5)

No. of Reviews: 6

Entering from the conservation area entrance you immediately enter twisting singletrack which joins with wide footpaths. The trail is mostly fast and winding, but not very technical. You have to keep hanging right on the turns otherwise you go into the conservation grounds rather than more trails. Eventually you come to a creek crossing, go left on the road for about a half klick and you re-enter the twisting singletrack. This section will take you to a bridge which crosses over the lake and takes you to the stonedust trail aforementioned in the Trailhead Directions.

Summary:
It's basically a hiking trail with some bends, nothing technical or daunting. Some mild up and downhills but basically just a narrower than typical footpath. There's some interesting bumpy bits when after you cross the first bridge, but it's rather short and after that is just regular footpaths again that leads into a large field.

It beats riding on the road, but it's not Kelso (fun).

Summary:
ummm. I don't know where to start. I don't even know why this trail is here. it is a waste of time for me to be writting this. well, i guess that it is a good warning. ok. Don't come here unless you wanna go swimming or somthing. OHHH!, sorry. no. You don't wanna swim here. Only come here if you have to for some reason( they make you go here if you're in catholic high school for religion class). If you want somwhere to start you're kids mountain biking just go to the hydro cut. there is some easier stuff there and I have seen many families going through there. This is a very boring trail. It is like a meter and a half wide gravel road through a little bit of forest and around a man made lake. there is a bridge which is kinda neat but, it is still not worth going to. There is a little bit of so-called mountain biking through a corn field across the street, which i think where aloud to go on. The scenery their is not even nice. if you want to go somwhere nicer and you're not lokking for any challenge adventure what so ever, go to Monarch woods( at the corner of victoria and fischer- hallman) at least the scenery is nicer their. Monach woods used to be a pretty good place to bike

Recommended Route:
no, just dont come here.

Other recommended trails in the same area:
monarch woods (if youre bored)

Summary:
Take the fire road to the right, when its dry out u can get some good speed, and when its been raining its really muddy, and FUN!! Then go left at the end of the fire road and follow that trail till u get the second fork, and take the left one, the right sucks. U can continue along there for a while, then explore to the left and right will give you some stuff a bit more "challenging," but not much.
I ride here only because i have to go to school and i don't have time to go to the Hydrocut everyday. Also, when u are done at Laurel Creek, cross Beringer road and go into those trails there. Again, they not much, but they keep me busy till the weekend when i go for real rides. These trails are all very easy, so anybody can ride there (providing u have a bike). Although i don't have kids because I'm only 13, i'd imagine that it would be a good easy place to bring your kids to get them started with mountain biking. Its where I started.

Recommended Route:
Go in off Beaver creek road, where there is a cut in the fence, it's better and longer that way. Then head across the little stream, up the hill, and continue along that trail.

Other recommended trails in the same area:
Hydrocut, Grand River

Summary:
It sucked its not even real singletrac, its more like somewhere you can bring your kids with their training wheeled rides.Theres so many better trails in the area of Waterloo county so dont bother with this stink hole.If your are into rails to trails type riding or community trails, check out the Paris trail or the old Iron Horse rail trail in Kitchener, but dont waste time with this one.

Recommended Route:
dont bother!!!!!

Other recommended trails in the same area:
dependas what you want to do, call a good bikeshop and tell them what type of riding you want to do and they will direct you to a trail./
