Simics

Average Rating:    (4.89 of 5)

No. of Reviews: 9

The simics are ultra-rocky with tons 'o roots and a few drops. Climbs and descents are usually on the shortish side but tend to be very steep. The trail system falls under the control of the NDCA(Nickel District Conservation Authority). Definetely worth a look if you're up this way.

Summary:
Excellent ride...not fast but lots of rock gardens, roots. drops (1-2ft), flat rock..great test of your skills. Try to avoid the bail-outs and trust your bike..you can do the recommended path!

Recommended Route:
Park near the PhysEd complex at LU. Head up the trails an look for the blue markers.

Reviewed by: Mike , from Oshawa

Summary:
This place is worth the 4 hour drive. I go several times a summer. While I am there I swear I will never go back because the place punishes you. After a few days I forget about the pain and remember the rush and invariably go back. Full suspension (moderate travel) is the way to go. Tons of traction on the slick rock, and where else can you ride a beaver dam? Sick drops, rock strewn down hills, insane climbs which are actually doable due to the traction. Pick your own line if you dare. Very Hot in the summer, not much breeze.

Recommended Route:
Park at the Tennis courts at the university.

Other recommended trails in the same area:
Powerline trail, for you endurance freaks.

Reviewed by: RESTLESS , from Keswick

Summary:
This area could use a decent trail map, Really enjoyed the terrain and level of difficulty. You definitely need the basics in handling skills and some fitness to do these justice, beginners should not apply.There were lots of optional lines and playgrounds. I will be back

Recommended Route:
Go to Laurentian University (right at Science Center North on Ramsey Lake rd.) Find the race tracks near the Physical science building and the trails take off to the south-east. Look for color coded (small plastic markers) indicating single track and follow blues or reds
