Great local trail, about 15 km or real singletrack so far. Not many large climbs but plenty of moderately technical riding. Best mountainbiking in the area.

Summary:
Can someone please update this? I was at the Camlachie Golf Course last week asking directions to this trail and they told me there's a new owner of the "little white house" that has not been allowing people access to this trail.

Thank you,

Mike

Summary:
I am not a pro cyclist by any means-- just a local. To me, this trail is pleasantly challenging. A good length, lots of ups and downs, very susceptible to high water, due to being partly in a flood plain. Not that I don't like getting wet when i ride.. So try and pick a dry day for it if you can. The Trail maps are a little confusing to me. 4 trails in all- you can do them in a couple hours easily. The local cycling community supports this trail. If you decide to visit, Please first visit the bike shop in Sarna, sign the waiver, make a donation, and please wear your helmet. I also recommend getting off the trail before dusk, since it can be dangerous and difficult to find your way out. Oh yes.. wear Mosquito repellent. No sense shortening your cycling season with West Nile virus.
From what I gather, there are periodic events held at the course, so it is moderately well kept. Lately, it has been a little washed-out due to the weather, and a few trees have been uprooted in choice places. I am sure someone will be in there soon to take care of that though.
This is the best in the immediate area, and a lot of fun to me.
Michigan State or London might have larger or more extensive trails if you are willing to drive a little further.

Recommended Route:
Just try not to get lost. The Bike shop in Sarnia can give you some directions on how to get there and navigate the place. The bike shop's on Front Street.

Other recommended trails in the same area:
Wawanosh Wetlands, sandwiched between Modeland and Telfer Roads in Sarnia. A beginner cross country, but really close to Sarnia. It connects to other trails, so you could make a decent circuit out of it. No downhilling here my friend.

Summary:
I used to really like this trial WHEN IT WAS THE ONLY ONE I WENT TO! But since i've been riding a lot more and seen other places I don't miss not going here. Last time I went the swamp sections were real swamppy and i got ate alive by misquitoes. Single track and i mean single track, lots of torns (2 flats on one ride) and tons of little stumps sticking up all along the trail. Cool to check out but you know what i'm saying!

The most challenging trail you will find in this area.
It is moderatly techinical, and Very Fun. For $5 a
pop, or $50 a year you'll never find a better deal.
Depending on trail conditions, (Has been known to get muddy)it will take you anywhere from 1 to 2 hours.
