Review: These trails fall somewhere between intermediate and beginner, but are a ton of fun for anyone! Really zippy, twisty runs with excellent banks built up to really get some speed on the switchbacks. Awesome!

Review: Over all good conditions with minimal mud areas, leaf covered . Great area and should be good once snow covered.

Review: Fun and fast flow with lots of tight, twisty turns. It allows you to whip around and pick up speed, so you can elevate your heart rate. It won't challenge you with elevation changes, but it will test your talents in tight trails and some impressive and long rock gardens (should you choose to accept the challenge!). Well-maintained with no obstacles on the trails.

Review: As a beginner this is a great trail for me. It has some intermediate Singletracks that weave throughout the forest. Good down hill sections along the lake, switchbacks that weave through the pine trees. It looks well maintained. Wooden and rock features with easier ways around. On the west side of Victoria Rd. Some of the Singletracks have overgrowth and were tight but a lot of fun. Most of the trails are west of Victoria Rd. I've been twice and I'm still exploring. Trail maps are at the trailhead and throughout. However I still got lost... You can park on Victoria Rd. on the shoulder or even riverside park for a longer ride. I think these trails have something for everyone with beginner, intermediate and a couple advanced trails.

Review: There are some really fun trails here - if you ride them in the right direction. There is one that is nice and tight and twisty that leads into a challenging rock garden section with big rock piles. This place could really benefit from better signage. If you know the trails, this place could be good fun with some pretty good flow. However, for the new comer, it's a little daunting to try and figure out all the trails and link them together the first time through. Directional arrows or better signage would be ideal for a better experience. Still a 4 star cause the quality of the trails are pretty great!

Review: A 3 rating is a stretch for my ride since parts were very overgrown and I found it difficult to get a decent ride since lots of turnoffs every 30 seconds or so. But I could see without the overgrowth and someone to show the best trails it has some potential.

Review: Great spot for the beginner. Some technical sections but mostly fairly easy stuff. Small to moderate hills. Fast flowing sections. There are trails maps at the trail and sections are marked. Well maintained. Can be wet in spots due to dense pine trees.

Review: Very well maintained with about 18km of single track maintained by the Guelph Off Road Bike Association. This place has tones of flow!

There is very little climbing, a full loop will provide less than 100m of elevation. However there is still enough elevation to give you some seriously fast sections especially going west.

There are some trails with man made berms (added this year), some that are extremely tight and twisty, some that are very fast and flowy, one that is 100% rock like Hilton Falls, and a few in the back half that have some climbs that will get your heart rate up!

Overall a really nice ride that will take about 1 hour and a touch to complete the full system. I have ridden most of the trails in southern Ontario and I feel this place is the most relaxing MTB experience there is. Not very strenuous due to minimal climbing, and lots of flow / high speed that lets you snake through the pine forest and have a good time!

If you are into wooden features and hardcore tech trails like 3 Stages / Hilton Falls then this may not be the place for you - but if you are interested in a flowy fun ride that you can rail corners on then I would hit this place up / have a nice day downtown in the city named "The B.C. of Ontario"

Also - The directions here say to start from Woodlawn which you can. But the actual official entrance starts on Victoria where the river crosses the highway - there is legitimate parking there for the trail system and the GORBA trail map is posted at the entrance on the East side of Victoria. If you park where the directions here state you can still get to the trailhead, but you will end up riding more tame doubletrack / hidden trails before entering the actual bike trail system.
