I used to think I was not a fan of Langford Park because the trails weren't technical enough.
However I now revise that - it is the pea gravel surface when it is dry that I don't like!
In winter, on a cool and damp day - the trails flow nicely and are quite enjoyable. Not always technical, but still enjoyable. This is NOT the case on a hot and dry summers day - when it is just slippery hell.
The published difficulty ratings are well over-stated. Let's assume that is to stop families getting in over their heads.
The "watch your head" trail is my favourite, and the "valley of opportunity" is quite good also.
