Mountain Biking Glen Major Forest

****   Add a review
#36 of 312 mountain bike trails in Ontario
#1,992 in the world

A network of generally beginner level single track with a couple of (short) intermediate sections with tight corners, and loose rooty drops/decents.

They may not be too challenging technically but they are still great to ride, especially if you like twisting through trees on fast fun trails, with short sharp climbs and enough options to do a 30 min or 2 hr loop. Glen Major also can easily be linked up with Walkers Woods and the Durham Forest main tract trails just to the north on concession road 7 for an even longer ride.

    Still on the short list of best rides in southern Ontario. Fast, flown for the most part with just enough climbing to keep you fit. Trails are in perfect condition even though it's been very dry.

    Trails are super fast after the rain. A few sections are a bit grown in but still riding very well.

    Fun network of single and double track - not to technical but just less than an hour north (east-ish) of Toronto so is a great option if you want to get out of the city to ride

    Very open single some fast fun trails but not very advanced Some hard and long climbs but very well marked worth the ride especially in conjunction with Durham forest

    Probably not really a 5 star trail, but given the area and lack of great trails its worthy of its 5 stars. Very fast, and adjoins Durham forest and Walker woods to give you lots of options. Some decent single track routes, but mostly double track with great flow

    Excellent trail network of single-and double track with variety of terrain. Suitable for all skill levels as the riding is not too technical. Well marked with a number of posts with maps attached to them, so you cannot get lost. Connects with Walker Woods and Durham Forest to give you a kms of trail!

    Amazing set of trails. There are many different loops so you can ride anywhere from 1/2 hour to the whole day.

    Unfortunately the trail is not well marked; there are no markers along the trail - only numbered posts every 300m or so. Also, I have found that the posts are not oriented with North [on the post] pointing towards North [on earth], so I highly recommend you bring a compass! Then you can line up the map with the compass' direction and you will not get lost.

    Overall, a great intermediate level trail.
