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!

Trail Q&A
Rider Questions


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.

Q: Do people ride here in the winter? -Downhill Mike

A: Yes. The snowshoers apparently pack trails enough for lots of fat bike fun.

Review: First time at 3 stages went winter fat biking. Just an amazing network of trails. I was fortunate to meet up with a local that showed me around. Can't wait to get back in the summer with the fully. Conditions were amazing. Snow fills in all the technical rock sections. Still some difficult obstacles.

Review: loved the idea of the trails but were dangerous and not well maintained.

Review: Awesome intermediate trail system. Top area from the parking lot can be a bit confusing so bring your GPS. If you drop down to the Pretty River, be prepared for a challenging climb back up the Niagara Escarpment. Best ridden when dry. The rocks are mossy and slippery and the clay is too when wet.

Review: We'll setup network of trails but no maps and signs. Made good use of Trailforks. Seems to have rained recently so there where many mud and water potholes but over all good ride.

Review: This place is tough and amazingly fun -- it's exactly what mountain biking should be! There's tonnes of technical stuff -- big rocks, slotted rock corners, root-filled climbs and lots of variable elevation. Your legs and lungs will scream, but then again, so will you (from joy) as you rocket down the enduro-ish runs. There must be 60-80 km of trails in there and they twist and connect in odd ways. It's tough to navigate, so find someone who knows them to take you out (we did). We started out at the lot at the 2nd line and went in from the top. We spent three hours on the trails and only got to the big ridge across the middle (we chose not to go further south to save ourselves the big climb back up). Don't bother going if you think Albion is the bomb. You will NOT enjoy it. Do go if you enjoy places like Buck or Agreement Forest where your skills will truly be tested.

Review: The only Enduro place in Southern Ontario that I can think of. I had a good time and thanks to those people who are taking care of this place. It was my second time there and I decided to ride all the way down to Pritty River. Those downhill sections are awesome but almost impossible to ride them up so I was told by the locals to use South Access Road for climbing back which will bring you to south rd 6.

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 :)
