Mountain Biking Bronte Creek Day Use Area

****   Add a review
#163 of 312 mountain bike trails in Ontario
#8141 in the world

Most of the trails are small double track limestone loops, map found here http://www.ontarioparks.com/english/pdf/bron-day_use.pdf or you can get a printed copy from the main gate house at the entrance.
If you look around you can find some OK single track trails that head down the slopes to the 12 mile creek, good little climbs to get back up. If you are heading in with your car there is a fee to enter the park which I think is $10.75 per car. I can honestly say that if you are heading here just to ride the trails the car entrance fee is not worth it, but if you are planning to spend the day seeing all Bronte has to offer then it's more then worth it. You are also allowed to bike or hike in for $1.00 per person.
Watch out for dog walkers this place is a haven for them! Bronte is the perfect place to burn a couple hours riding with the little ones, nothing to difficult or technical. There is a bunch of other things to see and do while you are visiting Bronte Creek, animals, play barn, nature center and century old farm house. You can easily fill a day exploring this place on bike and foot.

Getting there
Take QEW/403 to exit 109 Burloak Dr head north (away from Lake Ontario) on Burloak Dr for about a km and look for the Bronte Creek Provincial Park sign on your right. Once past the gate houses you can either turn right into head towards parking lot A or follow the main road around to parking lot F. From either lot follow the limestone paths and start looking for trail signs.
Park day use address:
1219 Burloak Dr

    Great view and lots of trails to cover. Nothing really scary, except when I took a walking path down to the creek and I almost killed myself.
    I have to say I'm not a very experienced rider so I had lots of fun.

    The Bronte Creek area has become my home trail so to speak. I can ride over after work and easily ride 20km. Yes a lot of it is limestone double track but if you're creative you can put together some good loops and turn it into a good training ride. In the centre of the park is a man made hill, it is a short climb but I do hill repeats which has help me with my fitness. There is a few sections of single track that start out as a downhill so you can carry good speed thru these section which makes it at much more fun. If you live in the area and are looking for a place to get a quick easy evening ride in, give it a try!

    A nice trail for a relaxed ride. I live very close so I go often on week days. Totally recreational or even XC, it varies from almost deserted (week days) to a bit crowded on certain weekends.

    Went there this weekend. Was mostly double track. Pretty easy stuff but a good place to go practice. Was very quiet for a long weekend which was nice.
