Mountain Biking Hilton Falls

****   Add a review
#2 of 312 mountain bike trails in Ontario
#516 in the world

A mix of easy forest riding, technical and challenging rock gardens, graded double-track. The most technically challenging areas are the in brown blazed "lynx backcountry" trail system. Take bug spray.

    Appears I tend to go to this location after heavy snowfalls or large amounts of rain
    Large snowfall but we’ll packed trails with much fat tire traffic
    Buried ice and slippery rocks with studs being really helpful

    Not very well marked, bugs were bad. Trails were intense for blue's, very rocky, steep and jutting rocks. Would go back but wear some protection and double the bug spray!

    Snow has melted and certain areas are starting to dry a bit . Three days of rain left the moss covered rocks slippery and certain areas flooded . Over all good technical ride in some challenging conditions .

    This place has a lot of rock and very technical sections. Many people can find "No Flow", but once you get the hang of it, that all changes.

    The locals are able to ride most if not all of the trails. You just have to keep working at it.

    There are lots of sections that can be taken quickly, you just have to get comfortable with riding over the rocks.

    The trails across from the Mohawk Raceway parking lot are called "The Agreement Forrest" and have far fewer walkers.

    Find a local or group ride and it will all make more sense. Great riding in fall and winter.

    Rocks, rocks, and more rocks. Signage isn't the best when you're deep in the single track, ended up getting a bit lost. Great place for hiking but not the best for singletrack biking, in my opinion. If you love a great workout with lots of rocks bouncing you around, this is the place. Very surprised I didn't blow a tire out.

    The double track and access roads are nice and smooth and allows you to go fast through rolling hills with some rocks you can use to get some air. Great scenic place to ride with the family when you stock to the main roads/trails but, only use the single track if you desire a true technical challenge.

    Hard to give an honest review, the conditions were wet and slippery, making the rocks quite treacherous. Trails were difficult to follow; signage is not great, and the mosquitoes made the traillforks app difficult to use.

    Wide varety of terrain ,a rare sunny day after a week of rain . Trails not bad but certain areas completely flooded out making interesting water crossings in foot deep water. The rocks in various areas and full length of some trails in other areas make for a good technical workout. Amazing area.

    Noon to late afternoon warmer temps turned snow to slush and water. Major ice on main hiking walkways making it easier to ride than walk. Amazing technical rocks sections, and areas of the Bruce trail . trailforks can guide you through the maze.

    If you like rock gardens, then this is the place for you. Not very well marked, so take a GPS. Definitely going back.

    Awesome trail. Lots of very rocky technical trails in there but many of the really gnarly sections have bypasses. Even still, it's probably not a trail I would recommend to beginner riders. Got totally lost in there and ended up at Hilton Falls and came back to my car at Mohawk via the road.

    My gf and I just road this trail Saturday. Not our favorite. Lots of rocks, really tough to get up to speed on the blue and brown trails. If u are into rock obstacles this is definitely for you.

    Was in here twice the weekend of April 11-12. Saturday to assist with a trail cleanup day. Sunday to ride the sweet single track. There is still a lot of water in the low lying areas, but the high ground is perfect.

    As the ground thaws take advantage of the overnight sub zero temperature and ride early. You won't damage the trails and you'll finish with a mud free bike. Old man winter returned last night and covered the ground with 2-3cm of snow. The morning trails are frozen firm with predictable grip on the rocks.

    Great everything trail. You need to run off the smooth limestone double track into some of the most treacherous and difficult single track in Ontario. Others are just fun single (Beaver Dam), and the ultimate pain (Bent Rim). Enjoy, but bring bug spray and maybe wear kneepads for the inevitable endo. Mostly flat terrain with little climbing.

    Awesome conditions today. No mud, snow or ice. Mid summer condition but no bugs.

    The riding here requires much more skill than at Kelso, but when you get into it this can be an incredible place to ride. I look forward to improving my skills with rock gardens and this is certainly the place to do it. I'm a 1st year rider and was able to get in a great ride on December 7 so it is not as hard as some people let on. Expect a challenge, and push yourself to keep going.

    the Lynx section is bike only which is nice.
