Great valley system with lot's of great downhill, and uphill challenges. So many inter weaving trails that it would take months to ride them all (or to learn your way around). Not "technical" per say, but with nice logs and extreme climbs and decents

Summary:
Haven't seen any updates in a while so i went back to see how things were progressing, I used to live in Hamilton and ride here alot, after moving away for a few years and coming back alot has changed. all the wooden features (not just the random fun stuff, but the needed wooden bridges for crossing water) are falling apart. It looks like they are putting in an extension to the Bruce trail, maybe a rail trail or a walking path but some nice treed sections have been removed and cleared. I would take the time to fix some of the stuff here but with all the walkers on the trails now and the new Ontario Regs, any type of wooden feature is being tore down by the town in fear of being sued.....Welcome to Ontario

Other recommended trails in the same area:
Dundas Trails are shorter loops but still a fun XC trail.

Summary:
These trails are composed mainly of rocky limestone at the west side of the top of the trails, and as you progress south deeper into the valley, you find smoother clay and dirt surfaces. The rocky stuff can be intimidating for beginner riders because it seems and all there is on the trails.

Recommended Route:
I suggest newer riders start on the east side of the trails on Dennis St. and ride down the fire road into the valley. There's a much more progressive learning curve at that point. AM enthusiasts and advanced riders are recommended to start at the Rona parking lot as the trails are connected directly to the back lot of Rona.

Summary:
I'm from waterdown, and this a great place to ride. On the oposite side of the train tracks of the bike park, their is a nice course with a huge berm. There's a tiny ladder jump halfway down that says made by Sony. I made that.

Favorite Trail:
Waterdown Trails

Summary:
These are some great trails! They are very close to my house and feature challenging routes with lots of hills and jumps. Endless variety.

Strengths:
They are LONG trails. You can always find a new route. Definately the bike park people have built in the middle of the forest. It has tons of huge impossible jumps, gap jumps, and wooden trails built over logs.

Weaknesses:
Can get very muddy. Can get confusing to get out if you go on unmarked trails.

Other recommended trails in the same area:
Dundas Trails
