The South March Highlands is a network of trails that have been in the works for over 10 years. In recent years the local mountain bike club entered into a stuartship agreement with the city allowing for the addition of signage and for the trails to be identified as "mountain bike trails".
These trails are are very technical with a large range of rock features. There are some man made bridges crossing some ponds and swamps. The network has been designed as a stacked loop with the trails near the trail head being rated easier than those farther in. The majority of local riders ride these trails with medium to long travel full suspension bikes. Club rides are every Thursday evening from mid may till early Nov depending on the weather and trail conditions. Very popular for fat biking once there is a good base of snow.
Local club web site is www.ottawamba.org where you can find details and local trail maps.
