Trail Description
About this trail
Network of trails about 20km many to choose from there are a few good down hills that are rooted and rocky so you may want a bike with a bit more travel. Use a tire that has about 2.25 or greater and have fun. There is alot of up and down with tight and twisty sections. A must ride!

Q: Is it okay for begeners? Looking to bring my girlfriend would it be okay for her. Never ridden trails before. -KrushinKeystones

A: No, 3-Stages would be a terrible introduction to mountain biking for a beginner. The Black Diamond rating is accurate and the warnings below about GPS should not be under estimated. I wouldn't take anyone into 3-Stages with anything less than a solid year of Blue Square Trail riding and 5.5 inch Full Suspension bike and trusted GPS unit.

Review: Do not ride this place in the rain. Do it when its a little dryer. Amazing DH runs and some really techie root/rock sections. Can do without the massive climb to repeat the DH though :)

Review: I only had one and a half hours so started from the parking lot at Side Road 6 / 2nd Line and just went exploring. There was a really nice balance of hard-packed trail and rooty, rocky climbs and descents. It was fast, technical and packed with endless opportunities to rip off your derailleur. Next time I'm there I'll make sure I have more time and I'm positive these trails will earn their 5th star. Oh, and when people say take a GPS, or someone that knows the trails, believe them. Its a maze (albeit a wonderous maze) of trails, and getting lost isn't just easy, its inevitable on a first time visit.

Review: I rode 3-stages back in mid-May and the trail was in excellent shape. If you're looking to get your heart rate up and your legs working this trail system is the place. 3-stages offers everything from, fast flowy descents, rocks and roots to lung busting climbs. I recommend going with someone that knows the trails, as the trails are all over the place. Once you know your way around you can put together some really great loops, we were able to ride 19KM and not ride the same trail. Beginners are warned these trails are not a good place to go for an easy Sunday afternoon ride. I have only ridden 3-stages once, but plan on making it a regular stop whenever I'm in the area.

Review: I was in there yesterday during the beginnings of an april snowstorm. manged to explore some ups and downs on the northwest end of the moraine. the 4X4 trails where 6th and 2nd road meet are flooded by a beaver's reservoir. sweet single track connected by a network of double track. There seems to be a big loop possibility traversing the moraine east to west before climbing the escarpment, coming back across and descending. Smaller DH missions for a quick afternoon ride are there for the taking as well. Expect tiring climbs, pumpy single track and white knuckle descents. In my two laps on the northwest end I found 150 meter+ descents that harboured everything from flowy hard pack to root choked gnar fests peppered with moss slicked rocks. In a word... Epic! Keep a 'visi' vest handy in case you fin yourself biking in hunting season. On getting lost... I can see it happening. The CA is pretty big and I imagine the forest can get as thick as pea soup in the summer. Just remember that downhill will eventually return you to the road which is probably where your car is. That being said you still might find yourself with a bit of unplanned pedalling to get to safety. A PR or a sandwich are good ideas to keep your spirits high while you get down.
