#17 of 28 mountain bike trails in Manitoba
#5276 in the world

The region is heavily developed with trails of multi use nature. At least two clubs: Sandhogs atv club, and Sandilands Ski club participate in maintaining trails in the area. Ski trails must be avoided in the winter.

There is a mixture of logging / forestry road, double track, quad track, and single track interspersed in the region. Getting lost is a possibility! The single track is a motocross development, and accordingly, some of it was poorly planned in the past. Fall line sections in gullies has resulted in serious trenched erosion.

Overall, there is interesting riding and the single track is very tight and constrained. Fun times to be had exploring the area, with little signage, direction, or mapping.

Getting there
From the wayside Marchand Provincial park on Hwy #210, East of Marchand. There are several options to accessing the trail network. West of the park, a quarter mile or 500 meters, there is a gravel / dirt fireroad that leads to a horse camp and the trail network. East of the park, the trail network crosses and runs adjacent to the highway in several spots. There are two established parking areas on the south side of #210. Approximately 3 miles, or 4.5 km East of the park, two gravel roads intersect with #210. The second is called St Labre Road North of 210, or Forestry rd 16, south of 210. Turn North on St Labre road and follow along until the second intersecting power line. A dirt road leads East along the power line a short distance to a parking area.

    The trail network is a somewhat maintained collection of segments. There is a relatively large loop of almost continuous singletrack, with an even larger network of quad, double and fire road around. The singletrack has been laid out somewhat ad hoc, and is extremely narrow. Much of it has been rutted by the action of motocross bikes travelling over a very soft sandy loam to sand base. As a result, the trail is a very continuous rut, that is often a foot wide , and can present pedalling challenges. Read here that you may have to time your pedalling!

    There are gullies at one end of the trails, which provide significant relief. They are generally of the nature to ride down, and push up. Well, at least for mortals.

    roots and deadfall over the trail which has been ridden over repeatedly by motocross bikes, will provide ample opportunity to work on hopping technique.

    The trail is an adventure, but requires some skill and considerable fitness to ride.
