Summary:
Lots of fun i really enjoy this trail as i am a local and have been riding since i was a kid. I really like the flow of this trail and enjoy most the trails there. Lots of roots and some rock piles. Smooth burms and fast downhills. But there only as fast as you make them, if you want to take it easy you can but if you ride it hard its really fun. Couple new sections put in recently.

Recommended Route:
Green a-b and red has a great downhill section if you cut right at the top of a hill goes straight down the face instead of s type corners down. Can be tricky if you dont know it. Green b has a bunch of good fast downhills.

Summary:
The marked trails are very fast and lots of fun but in no way technical and are mostly wide single track. Across Beagle Club RD. and the other areas the other reviewers mentioned there is more technical single track.

Recommended Route:
We usually warm up with a red which has a quick climb at the beginning and then the rest is pretty flowy and lots of fun if you're going fast.
Then we hit up the blue until it crosses the fire road, take a left and ride the fire road down a sick burmed downhill section that brings you back out to the green and then follow that from there on.

Other recommended trails in the same area:
Ganaraska Forest. Durham Forest.

Summary:
These trails are pretty lame. I rode the blue and red trails. I've heard the greens the best but after the red and blue I'd seen enuff. Also my dog was pretty hot and there isn't anywhere to swim. I went out after three days of steady showers but the ground was still pretty loose. Like biking along a beach. Lots of ups and downs, not technical at all. No rocks or roots or anything. Would be more fun at pace but the threat of running into a sandy patch and washing out prevents too much speed even if many turns have bearms built up. The single track isn't even twisty turny. McCauly Mountain in picton county is way nicer and has very similar terrain. Maybe it's a result of logging but this isn't like any forest I've ever seen. (Native NB'er) There isn't any soil out here it's just loose sand. Wildlife is also non-existent. There isn't any scrub or low lying vegetation at all--just trees growing in rows. For the experienced rider the trails are lacking. For the beginner the hills present a serious cardio challenge. For canines there is no water.

Other recommended trails in the same area:
McCauley Mountain conservation area, Collins Bay, Fort Henry (latter two in kingston)

Summary:
Lots of variety. Map at start of trail. Follow markers depending on how far you wish to go. You'll find hills, roots, and trees, not really any logs or spots that are super difficult. I'm looking for people to ride with during the summer so send me an email!

Recommended Route:
Take hwy 45 off 401 and go north about 10-15 min. Turn left on Beagle Club Road. Take your first left at the Ski Trail sign.
