As mentioned already by most of the reviewers, Waterdown is not a place to go if you are a beginner or out for a Sunday afternoon joy ride. It's hard to find level ground on this trail system, you are either going up or going down. If you are looking for a good work out this is a great place for you. If your fitness or skill is not up to par, you will find yourself pushing your bike up some of the hills and along some of the rocky sections. Waterdown does offer a ton of trails, you can easily spend half a day in here. Your best to head in with someone that has experience with this trail system as trails head in every direction. There is signage but I found it hard to follow most of the time. The Bruce Trail and some of it is side trails run thru there so be prepared to encounter hikers, and some that will get pretty up-set if you are riding your bike on the actual Bruce Trail since it is a hike only trail. If you would like info or want to join a group ride to explore the trails stop by Bicycle Works on Dundas right in Waterdown, they can point you in the right direction.
