Mountain Biking Horseshoe Valley Resort

***   Add a review
#97 of 312 mountain bike trails in Ontario

Horseshoe is a lift access resort where you have presently 4 DH runs varrys in technical difficulty. Each run has options to hit a feature such as a jump or skinny or you can take the bail route. Decent but short. Runs are about two and a half minutes from top to bottom. The more technically difficult runs are fun with step downs jumps and skinnies.

    The trails are too short, they squander elevation too quickly using steep drops. The local riders are nasty people.

    I absolutely LOVE this place. I'm in my 30's and never rode DH until I was 28 - now that my healing times are much longer and thoughts of mortality are on my mind, I prefer entry-level DH (that also doesn't require a 40 lb DH bike with triple clamps), and this place is perfect. I ahvent been since 2012. when they had 4 trails rideable (and 2 brand new ones) so I'm overdue for a visit. If you want FAST exciting DH, and aren't quite ready for a 20' table-top, you will love this place, too.

    The trail builders are super nice dudes too; I went on a Friday and got to chat/ride with a few them. Great place.

    The trails at Horshoe Valley were easy but fun. There were only 3 ridable trails when I was there but I have heard they will have 8 by this summer. They are fairly short but I easily spent half a day enjoying the hill.

    Horseshoe entered the DH arena with lift access runs. Presently there are 4 trails open a few. With a plan for 6 more next year. For new trails they are decent. A bit short. about 2 minutes. Flowy trails with berms on the corners allowing you to pitch the bike. The terrain is hardpack to loomy with wooden features. Using a tire like a Fat Albert or Ardent is a good choice. The 3rd and 4th run are progressively harder with wooden elevated skinnies and drops ranging from 3 ft to a 12 ft monster drop into a step up. Fun for the whole family.
