    Its a awesome blue trail if u take the hidden single track thats more in the forest its even funner. theres steep sections to techy rock gardens perfect for any rider im a pretty new rider and love these trails, its easy to take at your pace if you want to go fast u can if u like slower u can aswell. Theres some pretty cool jumps at one end aswell

    Just getting into MB a few months back now and as a newer rider these are excellent trails to learn on! There are many steep climbs, drops, rocks, roots, a few obstacles, bridges and the odd stream to cross. The trails twist and turn often keep you guessing as to what's next! I find that the trails are pretty challenging as a newer rider but still exciting enough for a more advanced rider to shred and have a blast. They're not suuper long but there's a ton of different ways to attack them so that you can keep it fresh. (Easier and harder routes) For myself being newer there's still some hills Im walking Because I don't have the ability/strength to climb them, some skinny bridges that I'm building courage for and some sections that I take a bit slower because I'm still finding my bearing on tight squeezes. I believe it'll be perfect practice for quite some time before I can go full tilt on these trails. Basically no matter where your at skill wise you will enjoy them... as the other reviewer said I wouldn't drive hrs to get to them or anything but if your in the area try them out for sure because they are a blast! If you see a guy with a carbon fiber prosthetic be sure to say hi :) Cheers!

    some fun single track - quite technical in places - some nice little obstacles and bridges. to negotiate - can ride a nice hour long loop with a good variety of terrain if you know the trails. Message me if you are not local and want someone to show you some of the best bits

    Good little system of trails. Nice singletrack with some double / ATV trail tossed in. Some short steep climbs to keep you working. Bit of a convoluted mess of trails but is easy to navigate as you keep the Nith River by your side. Gets overgrown in the summer. Great ride if your local, not worth the drive though if your more than 20min away.

    You can also ride the rail trail to Brantford and ride Hardy Rd trail at Powerline Rd to make a nice 30km-ish ride.
