Mountain Biking Bronte Creek North Trail

****   Add a review
#32 of 311 mountain bike trails in Ontario
#1,743 in the world

This trail has a little bit of everything, from small rock gardens to short uphill rooted section and some nice fast flowy sections of singletrack. Once you cross the railway tracks the trail becomes quite technical. You will find yourself either going up or down perched on edge of the ravine having to negotiate roots, rocks and trees. There are a couple little loops along plus a few surprises for the more adventures riders, so keep your eyes peeled

Getting there
The trailhead is located on the northeast side of the 12mile creek bridge along Dundas rd. The entrance has a chain across it, but there is an opening for you to get around. Parking is a bit of an issue, but just west of the trail entrance is a do it yourself carwash. On the other side of the road is a public school that you can also park at.

    Decent trail, being local, I ride the Bronte south (day use trail) up from Upper Middle Rd to Dundas Rd, then cross over to ride this. Once you get the hang of the trail it's a pretty quick ride to where it ends. Wish it could be extended further to Kelso area. There are absolutely no trail markings and I have come across a many riders who got turned around and kept looping. I would not recommend the trail for a beginner, but someone who has had sometime on their MTB and ready to step into a bit more technical trail, this is a good start. Overall, it's a decent trail with some quick downhills and a few steep climbs, some flows and a few drop-in sections.

    After riding a bunch of flowy trails I decided to give this a shot because the reviews stated it's pretty technical. I'm an intermediate rider and found it a great trail to get used to a little gnar. I have rode trails that are more technical but this had a good mix while keeping some flow. There's one or two very tough climbs and a couple pretty steep downhills but if you ride with the proper skill it's not enough to scare away the intermediate rider. Novice riders beware, frustration could creep in. Stick to the trails south of Dundas. Cons- only 4km to the end but have to return anyway so it's minimum 8km. There are some alternate routes that you can add to the overall distance. Few jumps and lots of log features to ride over.

    A nice hidden gem in north Burlington. As other have mentioned in the past, the section between Hwy 5 and the train tracks is a good combination of flowy trail and fun obstacles. North of the train tracks things get far more technical. Personally I would only suggest this section for confident riders.

    If you are looking for a quick evening ride, this trail is perfect. It has a little bit of everything, from punchy little climbs to root and rocks scattered all over the trail. Be warned the section of trail beyond the railway track is not for the beginner. The trail becomes very technical at this point.
