Summary:
I know this is my second time writing a review for this trail, but it is awesome! This trail has the most ladders in the whole Don Valley! Every single log has a small ladder over it, so you can practice for the big ones. There are about 5 big ones, plus a whole section that me and my friend are rebuilding. It will include a log skinny, a few other ladders and some drops. Not enough people know about this amazing trail, which has downhill, roots, ladders, drops, burms, small jumps, and teeter-totters (2, but hopefully more). It is always in great condition (hard-packed dirt). !WORD OF WARNING! DO NOT COME THE DAY AFTER A RAINSTORM, many of the section have clay, and become extremely slick, and wipeouts of the burm/downhill section are inevitable!

Recommended Route:
FROM SOUTHERN T.O.: Cross the Leaside/Overlea bridge, after you cross into Leaside, follow Laird and make a left before this green tunnel down a road that leads to loblaws. FROM NORTH: Go east/west on Eglinton until you get to Laird, go south on Laird until you pass a hockey arena (LEASIDE FLAMES ROCK!) and follow laird under a green tunnel. After the tunnel make a right down a road that leads to loblaws. On the south side of the loblaws, there is a concrete hill with a sign that says "Water Treatment and Sewage Plant". Ride/Bomb the hill, and about halfway down there is a path on the left that goes uphill. Cross the concrete ditch via the slab of concrete that spans it and you're on the trail. HAPPY RIDING

Summary:
A great trail with lots of ladders and other stuff freeriders will love (drops, downhill). Its always in good condition when its dry. DO NOT GO AFTER A RAIN DAY, the trail is wet and sloppy.

Recommended Route:
Take the every skinny along the way, they are quite challenging and fun. Do every drop and fly through the downhill root lines!!

Other recommended trails in the same area:
The Lower Don Dirtjumps! they are pretty gud and have been updated recently.
