    A few wet spots in the single track but less than you would think with all the rain. This track feels like there's more climbing than there is.

    I like to ride this trail in the spring when the rest of the places are wet and muddy this is my go place to get back in shape. I put in over 50 km on my mountain bike today and feel great. Right now I can't think of a better place to go and get in shape for summer riding. You can put in almost 100 km if you want and don't have to ride on.the rode with cars.

    It's a rail trail. Good for you if you like that sort of thing. I find the real beauty of the rail trail is the way it can be used to connect trail systems in Hamilton and Dundas valley.

    You get what you expect, its a rail trail after all. Flat, fast and picturesque, great to take your kids for a gentle ride or for quick leg stretch. Runs through Dundas Valley Conservation Area so you can take some great side routes and easily explore more trails.
