    Grassy areas have clear distinct trails for hiking and biking . Throughout the wood numerous local marked trails with excellent winding well cut paths through rock and forest , not found on trail forks . Areas closest to the river are still a bit wet

    Excellent trail system ,well marked but trail forks was needed for bearings due to many new interconnecting trails ,many not listed.
    Area was dry ,trails were leaf covered
    Guelph river trails were used to get to the Arkell area east of Guelph
