Trail Description
About this trail
Good twisty singletrack with not much climbing, fast and flowing with a few sections of rocks and roots. Can be done as an out and back ride or a lolly-pop loop. Take some time and explore the few alternate routes in the area. The trail ends when you get to Powerline Rd. after riding under the 403 highway, turn around and head back to the start. The entire ride can take between 16-19km depending on the route (out and back or lolly-pop loop).

Review: Dry hot day with trails in great shape, checked out many of the side trails and then continued through farm area hiking trails towards Paris . Workers have cut back most of the stinging plants but my legs still found a few . Great river side trail.

Review: Trail wasn't too hard to find, thanks to everyone's reviews. Perfect fatbiking day! Great snow. The further in you go the more technical it can get.

Review: Always looking to search out places i haven't been before, this is a great location. Once you leave the gravel wheelchair access path you enter into some well groomed single track and north of the 403 some excellent rougher terrain . Met a local rider and we even swapped out so i could do a 27 test ride . Should also be real good once it snows. strava

Review: Finally found the single track portion of Hardy Rd thanks to dread33's directions.
Enjoyed the out and back to the 403 on my 2016 Rocky Mountain Blizzard -50 fat bike. Will most definitely return to shred this place, but will venture farther North past the 403. Thanks for the stellar directions dread33.

Review: Great network of challenging single track trails that run along the river. Can be challenging to find if you're not sure where to look, or easily mistaken as the rail trail that many of the single tracks run parallel to. Once you're on the proper single track trails there is no mistaking that you've found the right ones. Narrow, some steeper short climbs, log obstacles, roots, rocks. Always a good time.

Review: Looked extensively for this single track trail, but was unable to find it. Will return seeing as others are reporting this to be different from what I experienced. Better makings of this trail could be helpful for others as I totally missed it.

Review: I think you probably didn't enter in the right spot because there's definitely no double track gravel sections through this trail.

Review: Rode this yesterday and came away unimpressed. Entered via hardy Rd and was met with super wide double track that is mostly gravel, and dirt. Only rode this trail system for about 10 kms and turned back. Went over to the The Pines and shredded that great trail system. It appears I missed the single track trail completely, but will return and find this great single track I've heard so much about. Thanks for the kind offer Mark, but I finally found it and I'm impressed.

Review: You missed it then. Small opening beside the rail-trail enterance. which is most likely what you were on. If your from the area, let me know when you go next, I'll show you.

Review: This trail is pretty good. The first two climbs are fun, definitely have to know what you're doing to climb the second one, that gives you idea of how he whole trail is going to be. Rode basically to Paris from Hardy road, came off of the rail trail. Parked near the casino. There is actually one really technical down hill section where the stairs are before the 403 under crossing. Other than that steep climbs roots rocks flow fast trail going back! A lot of fun!

Review: This is a great trail especially after passing under the 403. Some great technical climbs and descents with some tricky rock and root sections. Also some lovely swooping smooth fast sections. I had a blast. I had trouble finding the start of the trail and completely missed it. From the parking area on Hardy road head West and look out for a track with a private property no trespassing sign. The trail is just past this on the left look out for the white markers on the trees. If you get to a gravel pit on the left you've gone too far.
