Q: rental bikes? -Guest

A: Hello, Buckwallow offers rentals. They have Kona full suspension, and hard tails. Their rentals are 20 for the hardtail, 30 for the full suspension, and 10 dollars to get in for the day. They are cash only. When it gets really busy, the rentals go quick. (I know this cause this is my homebase. 80 season pass)

Review: This is an amazing trail system. It has quite a lot of variety in terms of both trail features and difficulty. There's stuff here for beginners and experts alike. The trails are marked very well and are a fun combination of fast flowy trails and technical challenges. The newer trail is a must-ride for sure as well as Spur Line and West D'Nile, although I'm honestly satisfied with every trail here. Even the double track is enjoyable. Would like to see a little more continuity between the singletrack trails as it sometimes is difficult to navigate all of the double track especially when trying to hit every single trail in a logical fashion. Really had fun here though and will come back over and over!

Review: Definitely sell worth the $12 entry fee...probably worth the drive. These trails have incredible variety and some really cool features. In my opinion it's the natural rock roll slabs that will get you actually saying "wow" out loud. They're very cool and I think unique to this area. They are incredibly well kept and the signage is great. They even go to the extent of writing a small description of each trail on the signs. The rating system of trails runs from 1 to 6 hooves. Average riders will find 3 hoof fun 4 hoof trails challenging 5 hoof trails difficult and 6 hoof trails nearly imposibe. But there is truly something for everyone here despite your level. My only complaints are that the size of the forest is pretty small and you might max out around 2 maybe 2 and a half hours. I spent an hour and a half and rode all but 2 of 3 trails. My other complaint would be that beyond some of the trails at the beginning the single track doesnt link up very well so you find yourself riding a lot of double track. That being said... this is no ordinary double track and is a lot more fun than you'd expect so it's not so bad. Anyway definitely would recommend it and will be going back my self for sure.

Review: Very fun place to ride, worth the $10 fee. Just make sure you have the time to ride for a few hours to get your value since the trails are a bit short. Riding on the shield rock is a blast and unique to this area! Some sections are flowy while others require skill to handle the rock face. My only gripe is the rating system. I can handle 5 hooves without much problem, but then 6 hooves is exponentially harder! I feel like 6 hooves should really be 10 considering the obstacles that are on them. None the less, an amazing place to ride and highly recommend! I will go here every time I'm on my way to Algonquin park, which is only once a year. Damn I wish I was closer!!

Review: Lot of fun for everybody, there are trails for beginners and trails for those who would like to challenge themselves. In fact, some trails are very technical. While there aren't too many long, steep climbs, there are a lot of rocks and roots.

Review: The trails were very well marked and maintained but just too short for my liking. With the longest being just over a km before winding up back on the double track to connect you to more trails. Some very cool technical sections but you'd have to ride the same few trails over and over to get in a ride of any length. Would be a good place to introduce new riders to the sport though.

Review: This place is quite amazing. The trails are very technical with each having a (hoof) rating of 1 - 6 hoofs, with 1 being the easiest.

Very well laid out with something for everyone, and definitely worth the experience.

The trails are as unique in personality as the owner. The only things I didn't like is that the trails are almost sterile in nature. It's as if the forest was planted meticulously around the trails.

The other is the lunch time crowd. There's no being alone on some parts here - but maybe that's a good thing.

Will make this a yearly trek, since I drive from T.O.

Review: I visited last weekend based on all the positive reviews. The trails are very well marked and the vibe is great, but there's simply not enough terrain to warrant a drive from Toronto.

The riding is mid-range difficulty, with lots of sections that have Canadian shield sticking out. If you like more trials-style riding this might be up your alley. If you prefer flowy berms, then stay away. The only sections that have any flow are too tight to get any speed going.

Each trail is also quite short. I think the longest one is just over 1km. You really have to link a few to get any flow going. 3, 4, 5 is a good combo, and then 12, 15, 21 works well too.

I'm glad I visited, but I wouldn't go again.

Review: Summary: Fantastic trails and worth the drive from the GTA. Trails are well marked and manicured - Mike has done a terrific job keeping these trails in top condition.

Novel rating system warns riders up front - beginner riders should stay off anything rated 4 hoofs or more.

Very challenging terrain for experts - harder trails are rocky, rooty and twisty. Used to clocking 15km/h average speeds on your home trail system? Here you will be averaging 6-7km/h - that's how challenging it is. Not a ton of climbing, but you will sweat if you push.

Great practice in tougher technical terrain if you are heading out of ON for riding.
