    Fun trails with some man made obstacles but most are falling apart so be careful. A lot of dog walkers - look out for scat. Park at education centre and have fun.

    This place is a fat bike wonderland in the winter. Good amount of hard packed snow trails so you can easily ride for two-three hours. I would say that most trails are cleared up and very fun to ride. If you are into fat biking in the winter then this is the place to go. I was here on Jan second and conditions were great but today Jan 3 it's raining so it might get icy tomorrow. I would recommend coming here on the weekend because by then conditions will get back to normal. This place has alot of single track and doesn't have anything super technical so it's a perfect place for winter riding. Enjoy

    Awesome place. Came here with my fat bike yesterday and had a great time. It was wet and slippery in some sections because it snowed a night before but it wasn't enough to fully cover up the leafs and snow was melting so that created a few tricky sections. As soon as it snows some more and temperature drops to minus this place will be perfect for fat biking because it doesn't have very steep climbs or crazy downhill. Stay away from man made stuff it gets very slippery in the winter. Thanks to however takes care of this place.

    Great fun no matter what you're feeling like doing. Lots of technical and manmade obstacles on some of the trails. Good exposure, but a fair amount of traffic. Park and enter at the ed. centre...

    Singletrack a little hard to find due to leaves on ground/time of year, but fun. Sandy soil seems to drain fast. Watch out for dog poo

    Great Riding, especially after a rain. When dry it's sandy. Some fun man made stuff, good hills and easy to find. Best spot to park is the Simcoe county education center just beside the main Simcoe building on hwy 26.

    Wicked Trail ! If you go and there is what looks like a race setup take it ! They are loads of fun!!! This place has little bit of everything here .Twisty , flowy , DH ,uphill , wood features , you can get a little turned around if your not paying attention - there isn't any marking far as I know . But very easy to spend hours here and perfect some skills.

    Be careful on the man made stuff some of it is very old if you look at it to hard it might break. As well some obstacles may be tampered with. Sometime last year a guy had to be taken out on a stretcher cause some fool dismantled half a ladder bridge system that you enter at a pretty good clip. Be careful and this place will reward!

    Great set of trails! Everything from beginner stuff to some tricky built obstacles and a killer drop. You could ride this for years and never repeat the same route.

    First off, hats off to the individuals or club that are maintaining and building these trails. Simply amazing work!! They are super flowy and have a little of everything, from rocky to rooty section and wooden structures scatter all over the place. Looks like there is some sort of color system to identify the trails, but most of the paint has faded over the years. You could easily spend a few hours exploring this trail system. Just a word of caution, some sections of the trail was pretty sandy and loose. I was there in the morning and not a sole around the place was all mine. I would probably rank these trails near the top of my favorite list.

    Great Trail system! Lots of features to make everyone happy, had a great time with the man made features and the fast downhills. as a first timer here got a little lost and there were some steep climbs

    My new favorite trail near Barrie i'd say!

    Fat bike mecca. The winter trails are awesome -- just about every part of the place is accessible, aside from a few of the human-made obstacles. First timers beware -- it's technical and the climbs can be brutal. Long and steep. I think it'll be great once I know it better. The view from the ridge is flat-out stunning. The place is busy in winter, but like a shopping mall in summer.

    I rode this trail on my way up North, and it left a lasting impression on me. There's lots and lots and LOTS of manmade stuff, bridges jumps and wallrides galore; as well as flowy singletrack. "Carnage Alley" is awesome, a small loop that is essentially all manmade stuff.

    The trail system is enormous too, it crosses traintracks and roads and goes all over the place. The trailhead is really easy to find, too: Drive to the Simcoe County building, and they're behind it.

    Awesome stuff!

    One of my favourite trail systems in southern Ontario. Lots and lots of flow, tons of man made features including bridges, wallrides, jumps, and crazy suspension bridges. Big climbs and descents with great tech - tons of fun!

    There are a wider group (actually snowmobile) trails that are far to sandy. Wouldn't be too bad but the edges are lined with posion ivy.
    Single track West of Nursury Rd are not too bad with some interesting decents to the pond. Not bad for being so close to Barrie
