Mountain Biking Ardagh Bluffs

****   Add a review
#54 of 312 mountain bike trails in Ontario
#2,766 in the world

You have to love -- I mean LOVE -- climbing to take on his urban oasis. The climbs are granny-gear challenging (and then some) with lots of narrow switch backs to get up the sides of what's best described as a ravine. It can be overwhelming the first few times out -- the climbs can be killers and the markers are OK, but not great. I'm pretty good with wayfinding, but I really find it easy to get turned around. Still, it's a great in-city ride that's super challenging -- you'll work up a sweat, burn some major calories and set your butt muscles on fire. What's not to love?
