Gnarly

Review: I only had enough time to roll Crank'd and Serious. The latter was AMAZING -- it alone was worth the drive up there. I would re-ride it twice next visit before stepping up to Sidewinder.

Review: Great venue for mountain biking of all ages. At the front offices there is a pump track, and a skinnies zone to practice skills. Atop the hill in front of the chalet is a fast and flowy bmx jump/flow course with rollers, table top jumps, and massive berms. The trails range from easy trails for children, to very technically challenging trails with multiple naturally and man made features. My personal favourite ride is the trail called gnarly. Given a rating of advanced difficulty, it provides fast flowy descents, challenging climbs, and cool technical sections. Another amazing element of hardwood is the accessibility to the 5 km of single track made and ridden two years ago at the pan am games by the competitors! Very technically challenging but loads of fun.

Review: Lots of different trails to choose from, they have green trails that are just dirt singletrack for young kids and beginners and it ranges to expert riding and an anazing loop made for the pan-am games. you will never get lost in the trail system either.

Review: Amazing place here! A trail for everybody, from beginners to Pan-Am riders! Staff is amazing and I wouldn't trust my bike anywhere but at the mechanic at Hardwood.

Review: Very well marked and maintained. Loops flowing into each other so one can fly through the whole trail system without stopping. All tracks are single directional with good signage. Nothing technical despite the fact that some trails are marked double black diamond. There are two entrances/parking areas at the forest leading to two separate trail systems; Glasgow Street entrance and Snyder's Road entrance. Both good places to start as the two systems are connected with a trail.

Review: Rode there for the first time today.

Very wide range of trails with equal range of levels. Definitely something for everyone here.

The trails are well maintained, and well marked - you won't get lost in here.

The only drawback - aside from the price - is, if your coming from the city, your stuck in cottage traffic either way.

Review: This is where my girlfriend and I started to MTB Ride and have enjoyed our last 6 visits. Great for beginners to start. Runs are fun, and adventurous. Clean facilities. Excellent staff. Will continue to visit Hardwood Hills.
