Summary:
Long Sault overall is a great place. It could use a garage can at the entrance to the trail and a nice picnic area. Note: Make sure to pay for parking as the conservation officers come by regularly and fine those who do not pay.
The trails to the left of the park are well marked however, we discovered that if you go the right of the trail.....off the bunny trail is a connecting trail called the DEER TRAIL....it was not well signed and the terrain was horrible...the sign indicated 2.9km.....well it turned out to be a 2 hour walk....most people take 30 to 45 minutes to complete 2.9km.....this sign needs to be changed as it is alot longer a distance than that.....recommend not to use DEER TRAIL.

Recommended Route:
To start with recommend Bunny Trail....35 mins or so. (Great for a walk)

Then next if you want to be challenged alittle more...go to owl trail...55 mins to walk approximately.

More challenging is the wild turkey...

You can bike or hike most of these trails....

Other recommended trails in the same area:
Heber Downs North of Whitby is nice.

Summary:
Three main trails with adittional loops. hard, medium, and easy. Can get muddy, in parts, others it is sandy. mostly single track, with roots, and rocks. wide range of technical, and easy going ridding. It is asked that you pay a fee, but is not inforced. Great trail for training. only 15 minutes, north of Bowmanville. Is great for all age's. Ride with a buddy.

Recommended Route:
Hwy57 North, Right onto Regional Rd 20, is exactly,2.5Km on the north sign.

Other recommended trails in the same area:
Red Gates, Ganaraska, durham forest, Dagmar, Hardwood hills.

Summary:
3 main marked trails, with lots of other areas to explore as well. Although if you head north expect lots of sand. Decent downhills combined with upfills, single and dual track . Make for a fun place to ride. Loops are from 2 - 6 km I think. Watch out for people.

Recommended Route:
Take hwy 57 past Mosport , take next left . This puts you at the North West Entrance.

Other recommended trails in the same area:
Dagmar, Harmony, Ganny, Durham Forest

Reviewed by: Dave , from Bowmanville

Summary:
Very decent with low technical difficulty, very fast. Close and great if you only have a hour or so. Can be real fun if you really boot it. They ask for a loony at the trail head, but leave whatever you want or nothing (i left $10 at the begining of the year and that was it). There are a few different trails of varying length. As usual watch for walkers + dogs + seniors.

Recommended Route:
Hwy 57 North past Eniskillen follow signs.

Other recommended trails in the same area:
Ganny, Greenwood, Dagmar($), Durham F., My driveway.
