Mont Glen Mountain Park

Average Rating:    (2.33 of 5)

No. of Reviews: 6

Being a ski resort, this place offers 40 km of cross-country riding for the intermediate to expert rider. Get ready for some climbing but you are rewarded with some downhill afterwards. This place is so beautiful and quiet. You can even ride here and not cross another rider. Even if the XC trails are new as of this year, a map has already been printed. Ask for one at the desk. This place hasn't been discovered by most mountain bikers yet, so do enjoy all this singletrack!

Summary:
Time to update this place. Mt-Glen just hasn't been able to keep this place up. After a promising start back in 2000, they really haven't done anything in the last 2 years. Do yourself a favor and skip this place. Too bad, because this place had a good outlook for mountain bikers in general.

Recommended Route:
Skip this place

Other recommended trails in the same area:
Go to Bromont or Coaticook.

Summary:
This is the worst biking I have ever done. Trails are not marked or cleared for that matter. It was like taking my bike for a 3 hour walk. I think the only people that would talk positively about this trail are the ones hoping more people will come. Don't waste your time when you have Bromont around the corner.

Recommended Route:
Don't bother going.

Reviewed by: Robin , from Montreal

Summary:
The trails are very new and need more traffic to make them smoother / faster. Expect lots of climbing to reach the top but some fun downhill. Cannot remember all the trail #'s but the #1 had loads of switchbacks that were cut too tight to bike through. This meant a few dismounts which became frustrating to our group of epxerienced riders.

Summary:
Great variety. The trails built on Glen are not quite up to a point where one could compare them to trails like Bromont, or Coaticook, but that is mostly due to the low volume of riders on them. In time, more riders will create a nice groove that will greatly increase the flow of the trail. Right now there are many sections which a lot of people will rather walk due to difficulty, and in between these, single and doubletrack connects them. You must know where to find these challenges though, because it's tough to find them on a map. As for Mt-Foster, this is one of the toughest trail I've ridden. True DH type trails might have some scarrier sections, but in terms of difficulty, Phil's elbow takes the cake. Note that it is unrideable in the rain, a statement echoed by EVERYBODY I've spoken to. In the dry, you have a better chance of clearing it, but you still face losing odds. Four words: "Good luck!" and "Body Armour"

Recommended Route:
If you want an easier time, try the main mountain trails. If you want something a lot more hardcore, ride to the top of Mt-Foster, and take "Phil's Elbow" down, preferably in the dry.
