    I didn't really have enough time to do the area justice so I'll have to go back to this place . Main trails were somewhat clear and dry secondary trails were leaf covered with minimal mud in certain low spots . Used trail forks to navigate towards the black trails and quickly realized each time I was climbing a downhill run . Changed that real quick
    Great area with lots of options

    I ended up going and its a great place. Reminded me a bit of three stages but just alot less techical which was good for more relaxed ride. I rode most of the trails from what I had on trail forks. I rode some cross country trails and then did some Enduro trails but ended up climbing back up on the 5 line north just to save some time and energy. After doing it twice I took the rail trail and slowly climbed back up to the parking lot by Horeshoe Valley rd. Loved the place but the only small downside is once in a while you might hit a sandy section which can result in crashing so watch out for those sandy spots.

    Thanks for your feedback. Recently I started moving away from downhill and getting more into Enduro so will definitely check out this place. Thanks for sharing.

    Best place close to Barrie by far. Flowing single track will have you grinning ear to ear. Follow the trail from the parking lot like the description said but go right into the singletrack and do a big loop that will bring you to the 5th line DH section which is a blast! if you go left you'll be riding up the best part of this whole system.

    Trails are in good condition. There are some sections that are grown over a bit as well as some that are still leaf covered. Also a couple that have large trees down over them.

    This place is crazy. I have been twice and still haven't fully figured it out.

    Nothing is marked, but there is some seriously crazy single track in here if you find the right sections. If you don't you may hit a lot of boring double track. Most of the single track spikes off the double track so keep your eyes peeled and start near Horseshoe resort by the 'condos' across the highway.

    There are some nasty climbs in here too, but some nasty descents as well (old DH trails with jumps as well)

    The first time you go prepare to get lost or at least waist a bit of time finding trails unless you go with someone who knows the trails.

    In the middle there is a giant tree covered hill with about 6 trails spiking out from each direction of the peak, all going downhill - pretty crazy!

    I would say there are upwards of 40-50km of trails in here - need a solid amount of time out there to make the most of it unless you ride with someone who knows a good loop.

    This is a whole network of trails in Copleland forest of doubletrack and singletrack. The doubletrack trails are sandy and covered in horse-crap but the singletrack is very nice, smooth and well built. We sampled about 10km of singletrack on our outing and had some good climbs and downhill sections along with some flat sections. There are a few technical features on this trail as well. None of the singletrack trails are marked so you have to explore. There are many miles, so take your GPS so you don't get lost.
