If you go east you can play around in some sweet downhills and climbs, nothing too technical, a couple of rocky downhills, if you get to highway 5 ( or want to continue in this direction head north on what ever trail your on) go across and up a gravel road 10 metres head east on rolling trails until you hit cedar springs road. Cross the road and head south about 100 metres on the east side of the road and slip in the trail. you can follow this for another 6km to guelph line, watch out for the long sweeping downhills they are sweet. IF YOU GO WEST, ride the trail about 2km to king rd cross and continue, this area can be technical, there are some chicken routes around, but try the rocks if your intermediate or above, at the end of this section of trail you will be on mountain brow rd. follow it west to waterdown road (.5km) turn right and ride down the road .5km to a parking lot on the left, hop in here and start some more crazy technical, if its wet walk it on some sections do ruin the trails for everyone. You can get lost in here easily as the trails continue for at least 25 km of twists, loops and side trails as you make you way into the waterdown trails ( which are also listed in this directory). Have fun and respect the trails when they are wet, erode the trails and there won't be anything left.

Summary:
The ground was rock hard frozen...not really any snow - bloody cold. We'll definitely be back again...and again... Captian Kirk and I headed west from Kern road. The first little while was pretty tame but serves as an ok warm-up. The section by the waterfalls (Waterdown road) has some good technical decents (with rocks, stairs,...). Ride this for a little while and you'll come upon a section named 'Dirty Little Secrets'. THIS SPOT IS INSANE! Make sure you've got your health card with you!!! The tricks seem sturdy and fairly well constructed - not to mention VERY CREATIVE. The triple linked teeter-totter is very cool. There are also some other cool XC trails just past here as well which you can find by sticking to the main trail. This place has something for everyone.

...Psalm 69 - THE BIKERS SHALL INHERIT THE EARTH: On the first day it was said that the builders shall build these marvels. And it was done :) - Intermediate\Expert riding
- Beginners probably should walk most of the sections near the waterfall to avoid any risks but can probably handle most of the trail after it.

Recommended Route:
We travelled west along Highway 5(Dundas St) from Appleby. Hwy5 climbs up - soon you'll see Brant St. and the next road on the left is Kern Rd (1 road west of Brant St). Go south on Kern for about 1km and you'll see the trails on either side. Most of the time you can follow the Bruce trail markers without worrying about getting off the trail and missing anything.

Other recommended trails in the same area:
Same as what everyone else has said - Kelso, blah blah blah.

Reviewed by: Graham , from Oakville

Summary:
I rode the East side to start with, those trails go everywhere. I found most of the stunts and tried them, took many tries to nail the 25 ft log ride, but was worth it. I found a couple of trails that were dead ends, but other than that its was sweet outting that was only short drive away. I then rode the West side, which is main Bruce Trail stuff, it was pretty good, not very challenging, except for some wicked rock gardens. Go ride if you want a short drive to somewhere other than Waterdown or Kelso.

Recommended Route:
Same as everyone else suggested, real easy to get to

Other recommended trails in the same area:
Waterdown, Kelso, Hilton Falls, even Dundas Valley

Summary:
if you go on the left side of Kerns, take the trail along the edge and then go right into the forest instead of following the trail along the field....stay to the left until the "T", go right down the hill, nice fast downhill section that leads into some built up stuff.....up and down, but not killer....

Recommended Route:
same as above......

Other recommended trails in the same area:
waterdown, kelso

Where are the stunts? Do you follow the smokey hollow trail? Does this link up to hidden valley?

Summary:
I rode this trail today with Sir Bikealot. The stuff he built is excellent. Very high quality and fun riding all around. 4 foot cliff drop hidden in the forest. It may sound small but first do it and then tell me that. It is a 7 foot drop it's just that the rock itself is only 4 feet high. Also you land on a very steep trail and you have to jam on your brakes right away. Anyways, it's a really great place. For some pictures, go to http://clubs.yahoo.com/clubs/torontoarearidepost , become a member, go to photos and check out the Burlington album. Keep in mind that I rode today and the film isn't even finished yet so the pics will not be up for a couple of weeks.

Recommended Route:
For me the west side held more of the good hard stuff: downhills, jumps, logrides galore, big drops (up to 8 feet if you go fast enough), and other fun stuff. The west side was much better for XC riders.

Other recommended trails in the same area:
Waterdown, Dundas Valley (easy XC)
