Mountain Biking Collins Bay

****   Add a review
#69 of 313 mountain bike trails in Ontario
#3,071 in the world

There are trails on both sides of the road, but the best are on the left (south) side. There are a tonne of trails
in here. Some bridges, some nice ladders. Have fun, but watch out for the poison ivy. Follow your nose. The
network is too complicated to describe, but if you spend a long time on a four-wheel-drive road, you're in the
wrong place.

    blocked off now, the city of Kingston wouldn't buy it. It was a great trail and i wish i was still there.

    Rode this trail after a night of rain so the trail was a little damp. Made for some technical riding. Some nice natural and man made obstacles to traverse. Once you find this trail you'll love the ride.

    These are the best trails in the Kingston area. If you want downhill go to BC but if you want cross country it will be as challenging as the trail you chose. The difficult trails run along the escarpment both north and south of Taylor Kidd Blvd. It takes me 3 hours to ride them both ways. Lots of rock gardens, logs, lots of short steep climbs and drops. In all the years I have ridden the trail I have always managed to fall of my bike at least once, The easier flatter trails go on and on and on. They just keep connecting to other trails so you can ride for as far as you want with out doing the same trail twice.
    There is something for all skill levels beginner to almost expert. The trail starts on Taylor Kidd Blvd, just west of Collins bay rd. at the bridge. It runs on both sides of the road. enjoy

    Awesome place. The rock gardens were sick. The trails were well maintained, considering it is locally run. There was so many trails out there that I did not even get to see. I can't wait until I am back in the area and can check them out!

    Good trail for being in kingston. Some technical portions but relativley easy.

    Great mix of single and doubletrack, with lots of rocky technical sections if you can find them. Needs to have some signs or something, but has lots of options and you can make a bunch of great but short loops. I rode just over 20km last time I was there.

    There's a great new section on the north side of the road called Rake Boy - fast, flowy, twisty, rooty and rocky with a few bridges thrown in.

    Some nice beginner trails that make good use of a relatively small area. If you’re in the area or passing through definitely check them out. If you’re planning on travelling any distance just for these trails you may want to reconsider.

    Nice single track. Not too technical, but some challenging bridges, ascents and descents that aren't for the faint hearted. Most of all, watch out for the poison ivy. * Review edited 7/13/2009* Review edited 7/13/2009
