Some loops that interconnect. There are some elevated skinnies and mostly single paths. You can connect them in various ways which make for a decent workout close to home. Not a big area but if you live close by its good for inner city.

    Area included section north of Sheppard along Don Valley . Overall dry conditions with some sections overgrown and trees down .
    Amazing setup of trails along bottom middle and tops of hillsides .

    Fun in and out for urban dwellers residing in the area. A few skinnies to hone your skills on, but nothing extremely challenging. There are a few fun inclines and descents. Loop can be done in half an hour or less. However, one could spend about 45 minutes to an hour just screwing around. There is more singletrack just to the south of the ski hill which is perfect for a warm up - fast rolling and not very technical. Fun for some exercise or teaching beginners the joys of mountain biking.* Review edited 3/31/2010* Review edited 2/18/2011
