Mountain Biking Algonquin East Gate

***   Add a review
#151 of 312 mountain bike trails in Ontario
#7,314 in the world

The Minnesing Mountain Bike Trail is located 23 km from the West Gate and 33 km from the East Gate, just off of Hwy 60. The trail consists of four loops, with distances of 4.7, 10.1, 17.1 and 23.4 kilometres. All four loops are hilly and unsuitable for small children and unfit adults and are rated at a moderate level of technical difficulty. The western or return side of each loop follows the old Minnesing Road where the trail is smoother and the grades are less steep. Expect extensive muddy sections until the drier weather of August and September. Cabins are located at the start of the trail and on the return run of the second loop. The trail passes through hardwood forest with views of three lakes along the way.

    If you take the furthest trail loop you will find a lot of trees blocking your path. It was a great ride but a tough workout. We used fat bikes, lots of stones along the way. Take a repair kit with you because it's a long walk back to civilization. Realize that you do not have cell reception for most of the ride. Few people ride the furthest loop as it's officially closed therefore there's not much chance for help. Great scenery along the route! Ride Safe ??'?????

    If you're doing anything other than the first two loops (which are fun, but short), be ready for some bush whacking. Very over grown in the latter two loops. Not a good trail for anyone without proper skill and equipment.
