Trail Description
About this trail
From the trailhead parking go into the gate and take the gravel path to your left, pick up the singletrack shortly and follow the blue and yellow blazes on the trees to ride the complete loop. The blazes can be hard to see so keep your eyes peeled if you've never been there before. Total loop length is about 20km, try not to get lost on all the cheater lines (there are lots of them).

Trail starts as great winding singletrack through a pine forest and slowly turns into a slower and more technical ride with lots of roots and rocks. Quite a few short steep bits up and down to keep you working hard.

Review: These trails are fun and flowy, and there's enough difficulty in the black diamond sections to challenge good riders. The trails are well-kept and easy to follow, even without markers. The proximity to the 401 makes it a bit noisy, so this isn't the place for you if you want to hear the quiet of the forest. But there are enough trails that you won't run into too many people, even if the west parking lot is full. These trails are fast and really good riders wouldn't be out of place on a cyclocross. In fact, I saw a couple riders on old-school rigid bikes with the skinniest tires. All-in-all, this place is a BLAST!

Review: A little tough to get to but closer to home than Hydrocut. I preferred this to that for the simple reason this seemed more diverse. The inner tracks at puslinch seemed more challenging in a technical sense, short, steep, rocky, roots climbs with switchbacks. The outer rings are much more sedate. Hydrocut offers a similar feel, up and down creek beds, but is more clay based and therefore flowy, longer uphill slogs and once you're in the mix it's harder to get out. Bugs at both. Will ride both again.

Review: Rare Perfect combination of precipitation , 3" of fresh wet snow , just packed by fellow fat bikers. Add in a sprinkle of rain and a -1c temp made for amazing traction and quick rolling tires..... But rain soon started to freeze. Until then made for near perfect conditions.

Review: Super fun, lots of choices, new sidetrail around every corner. Which leads to some confusion/mis-direction, but that was the best part ;) A little rocky and rooty, a good place to get in a lot of distance.

Review: Some fun easier pine forest trails plus some more challenging rocky, rooty technical trails with tricky, punchy climbs. Bring the map (http://ontariobiketrails.com/item/puslinch-mtb-trail/) or you will get lost. Great job of building the trails. Just wish they were longer:)

Review: nice area. few people. only thing was that its easy to get lost. trail are not clearly marked. i dont recommend riding alone first time (i did and got so lost). bring someone that knows the place to show you around. another weird thing is that there are a number of entrances and exits. i found my self on a dead end dirt road by consession 2 and sideroad 10 when i gave up and took the road back to the start... spent about an hour on the trail. if i had more than 2 liters of water i might have stayed but ill def. be going back.
