Very technical trail made by 4 or 5 local riders. Me being on of them. A couple of really steep Down hills and a lot of trees and rocks to ride over. Only about 5 to 10 Km so far but we are working on expanding it.

Summary:
This was shot in 2012 in upper/lower Scarborough Rouge Park going all the way to Port Union Village common park. This includes couple of km inside the Rouge Park with hills, rocks etc, biking by the rouge river. Several kms of riding in the neighbor hood, beach and lakes etc. You can make your own trail and connect with other trails. I suggest using Google maps. Btw, some of the intense trails are not covered in Google maps, you have to discover them :)

Other recommended trails in the same area:
There is a nice trail that goes through the Morningside Park. This can potentially connect with the Don Valley trail. Again there are several hidden trails you have to uncover.

Summary:
I ride these trails once and awhile and I really like them. They are wuite technical and have many small ups and downs and bumps that are fun. Last year it got quite overgrown though. Theres tonnes of trails in the rouge that are there but they are all really tiny side trails that are REALLY over grown.

Recommended Route:
Start from Glen Rouge entrance on hwy 2 just past port union in the middle of the big valley there.

Other recommended trails in the same area:
northern rouge and side trails in the rouge

Summary:
Road this trail and most of it was flat running along the Rouge River. If you head north it is suppose to take you to the Metro Zoo, but with all the rain the last couple of weeks the weeds have taken over the trails and it is hard to plow through them. Anyone living close by have a lawn mower? If you do ride this trail put some insect repellant on cause you will be eaten alive at some places. This place has the potential to be a hot spot for mountain biking, as the Rouge Valley system is one of the biggest parks in Ontario, thanks to the P.C. government. Way to go Mike!! This trail can become as good as the Don Valley trails but instead of a highway as a back drop, you have a beautiful Rouge River to look at. In the fall you can watch the glowing salmons make their run up river as they come in from the Pickering Nuclear Plant on Lake Ontario. So what are you waiting for? Get you ass off that seat and ride!! If you come here, please bring a lawn mower.

Recommended Route:
All of em!

Summary:
Don't know what kind of measuring device you guys are using, but the main trail is no where near 4kms. It's not even a kilometer, but it does have a couple of good downhills and shot steep uphills. There is one part where you have to climb over a fallen tree. Lots of other trails branching off the short main one which I have to still explore.

Recommended Route:
Can't recommend one being that I have not yet explored the whole trail system.

Other recommended trails in the same area:
Twin Rivers, but I'm sure these trail all connect.
