Traveling to Toronto, I wasn't planning to ride here after reading the recommendations to go with someone who knows the trails and all the linking of portions you need to do on roads/trails. However, after a nightmare commute to the Kelso trails, we decided to ride these closer trails instead. We parked near the lower Don trails by the Loblaws grocery store and decided to just go, and hope we would like it and that we could figure it out. We were pleasantly surprised that it was pretty easy to just keep riding, We were able to ride out 50 minutes and could have kept going, before we turned around to go back the way we came. Within that time, I only consulted my phone to check directions 3 times, and we were able to ride straight back tracing our route. So, out-of-towners, don't be dissuaded! These were awesome trails! I couldn't believe all the elevation change occurring right in the heart of the city, and the features were great! I enjoy technical trails, and flowy trails, and these offered portions that were both. Not for a beginner (although segments could be). Fantastic find in the middle of the city!
