Lots of tight single track that allows high speeds through mainly pine forests. Nice
Area to ride.

    Lots of climbing can be had following by some twisting downhills. Light dusting of snow .

    When I came today most of the trails were not ridden and covered in snow except a small section in the beginning. It was my first time here so I wasn't able to cover all of the trails but I rode most of them so hopefully guys will be riding here in the next few days and pack down the snow on all of the trails. I spent about three hours here and did most of the trails couple of times to make them wider. Hopefully you guys will be able to ride and enjoy my tracks because I had to walk my bike for fifty percent of the time in the beginning because the snow was pretty deep.

    Looks like the logging is done, a few left over areas but for the most part are trails are reopened and just as good as before!

    A great place to ride again!

    The forest is currently being logged, however the upper trails are slowly being cleared and reopened.

    Unfortunately there is some sort culling going on in the forest. Numerous trees cut down, most of the trails are impossible to ride. There is one large loop around the forest. All of the beautiful and scenic trails are gone.

    Absolute disaster what they're doing and they're completely destroying all the trails!!! The pictures don't lie

    Agreed with all that's been said. Currently there is some work being done on the bridge over #400, so If you are coming from GTA, you need to access the trail from the East side of HWY 400 on RR11. If you come form the West, you will not be able to go over #400. The bridge is supposed to be back in place later this fall....if on time.

    Simply the best fat bike ride I've ever had last night. Coulson's Hill is set up perfectly for winter riding. The runs were tacky enough for good speed, with definite give... you're still on the edge which is fun. Temps were perfect (shielded from the wind) and the whole track well maintained. Not too terribly technical, but so much fun. I ❤️ Coulson's Hill!

    Love this track! Fast flowing trails with lots of interesting features. Not too terribly technical, but a terrific place to find your ragged edge when it comes to speed and finesse.

    Fun and flowy on the well-groomed singletrack at the front -- it's maintained by the folks at Spoke-O-Motion in Newmarket and the work is impeccable. The arrows mark out the weekly race route -- try them, but also take the paths a little less travelled to get to the ravine and river bed at the back. It's gorgeous and adds some climbing to your workout. I gave it four stars only because I wanted more -- it's a relatively small area and well utilized in terms of trails. I could have just used more.

    Have ridden this trail a few times and the local club does a good job at updating it and keeping it fresh. New markers calling out different lines and courses since the last time I rode it. I forgot about the river crossing. It was a bit mucky in some spots but all in all a good ride.

    A mess of trails in a relatively small area. Lots of short ups and downs and good flow. Takes a bit to learn the trails and find your bearings but well worth it.
