Review: A mix of multi-use (horse, hike, bike) trails and purpose built mtb trails. The multi-use trails are just OK but the dedicated mtb trails are fantastic, kudos to the trail builders. Can be ridden in both directions but it seems like the intention was to be ridden counter clockwise.

Review: Trails have some serious erosion in parts. A few sections are still wet. Totally rideable but please walk the wet spots!

Review: Creative network of trails with many switchbacks. Over all conditions varied from mud in the sunny areas to some snow and water with lots of ice through out the forests Still a great ride and now have to go back when it's summer to check it out at speed

Review: Fun and flowy IF you go the right direction. I didn't enjoy it the first time out, but today, I rolled in the opposite direction. What a change. Palgrave has fantastic flow -- sharp uphills on well-planned switchbacks and GREAT downhills. My fat bike ate the place up. If you park off Hwy 50, go RIGHT on the first singletrack you find. Counterclockwise is the only way to go (unless you enjoy cursing).

Review: This place is awesome for fat biking in the winter. When I came here today it looked like a hard packed snow but it was a snow powder with ice underneath. It was snowing so as I was leaving it locked like the snow was sticking to the ice and making it less icy but there will be still a good amount of icy sections. If you got studded tires bring them because you will need them for the next couple of days. Take your time on the trails because I am sure there will be still some tricky sections. Other than that the place is awesome and trails are super flowy. The reason I gave this place 4 star and not five is because it's pretty smal for me and I usually like to put in a least three hours of riding. Also the place is alot bigger then what it says on Singletracks. I would say about 15-18 km. Awesome place go ride it!

Review: As with previous reviews: excellent flow, excellent maps at trail heads, well maintained. Really impressed how well trails shed water. Had planned to ride Albion Hills, but closed due to rain. Palgrave completely dry morning after huge thunderstorm. Not a mud hole to be found.

Review: Great trails! You will love the flow once you get a bit familiar. Lots of nice descents, and some challenging ascents. I think the trails are marked pretty well, but I would recommend having a map handy for your first time there.

Review: While what I rode was well maintained, I couldn't find flow anywhere here. I felt like every damn trail I entered I was riding backwards. It would seriously help this place out to add some decent signage. Even some small pin-in-the-ground arrow signs would do wonders. I was tired after 4 hours at Albion Hills and little patience to try to link the trails together to find flow. Can't get lost here, which is a plus but definitely disappointing since I was told this place was a hidden gem. I'm sure it is once you know the trail. I would have loved to experience this place as it was described here and by others. If the trail maintainers read this, please consider adding some better signage! Thanks!

Review: Amazing trail! Worth the drive 5 minutes North of Albion Hills. The trail it self is well maintained, and very well constructed. Overall Palgrave isn't as challenging as some of the others I.e. Hydrocut or Don Valley but it is worth the drive. Lots of up hills and downhills and some jumps. I am coming here again! Only thing I do wish to happen is to add some more trails, there is enough of space for say about 10-15km of trails. But eh it's not up to me it's up to the people building the trails.
