Trail Description
About this trail
The Pines is a section of land leased by the Upper Thames River Conservation Authority to the local Woodstock Cycling Club.

It is a nice fast buffed singletrack loop all through the parcel of land. As you can guess it winds through numerous pines, with very tight fast corners. In addition there is a super fast bermed section that is a load of fun!

You need to be a Club member to ride these trails, 12 month membership starts at $30 and teh trails are open year round. More membership info can be found at: http://woodstockcyclingclub.ca/membership/

Review: As a newby to the sport, this was the 2nd trail system I've ridden. Keep that fact in mind when reading my review. I enjoyed my day here. There is ample parking. There is a pump track. The green trail is fairly easy, but it does have some climbs. I tried some of the intermediate trails. Some were above my skill level. Intermediate had more climbs, a few jumps, tight turns, obstacles. There was a ride around on a few obstacles. A membership is required here, or a $10 day pass. Membership is only $35, so I probably will be joining. And I'm told that if you did a $10 day pass, that can be applied to the yearly membership.

Review: Super fun trail to bomb through! Some wicked fast portions with killer berms that fire you out the other end like a cannon, technical rooty/Rocky sections that'll really test your skill, and a few fun climbs and short but steep doshills. There's also some obstacles throughout the trail that you can stop and mess arpund on :) this is my new home trail whenever I can find the time and I love it! Trails are all one way and for MTB only so your not having to worry about oncoming traffic of any sort. Only down fall I can see to this trail is that it's not long enough... for me though there's plenty to keep me busy for quite some time. They also just added a new 1km trail that has some pretty technical fun stuff in it. See ya there!

Review: Attempted to ride fat bikes today at this trail, only to be met with way too much powder to ride. I will avoid The Pines for fat biking until such time arises that I can get reliable information as to the conditions being acceptable for fat bike rides. As a note my buddy and I are using 45nrth Flowbeist/Dunderbeist rubber with 7-8 lbs of air and my bike wouldn't even steer properly as the powder was far too deep for decent trail navigation.

Review: That whole west area got alot of snow lately. I was trying to ride Fanshawe Lake and run into the same problem way too much snow. Try Hydrocut it's a busy place so trails should be rideable

Review: Nice quick unidirectional single track, well signed with many manicured berms through pines. Lots of flowing downhill with little climbing in the pine section (red trails). The interior black trails cut through slightly more challenging deciduous tree trails with some rock and more roots with a few shorter but challenging climbs attainable by intermediate riders. Some fun features like bridges and smaller kickers or larger rock/log features which can be bypassed. Overall great flow and very fun to ride but don't expect to ride for several hours. I GPS'd the red and black and it was under 12 km but was satisfied. If you re-enter the trail for more, the first section is the fastest, funnest and easiest and you can kick out to the perimeter trail rather easily.

Similar Trail: Turkey Point, Christie Lake, Puslinch (but better flow)

Review: You really need to like corners, or want to work on them, if you go here. Single track is in awesome shape, and the trail makes good use of its limited topo to keep you working. The advanced side tracks are well worth it. Not too difficult but still more of a challenge.

Review: Once again returned to The Pines with fat bikes loaded and proceeded to shred this gem for hours. This has to be one of the best trails in south western Ontario. I regularly ride Fanshawe in London, but now find myself returning to The Pines weekly. Check it out, you'll be pleased and get a great workout as well.

Review: After arriving via singletracks/The Pines/google maps, I realized this google map leads riders to the wrong area. On the same road go north 2 side roads to #4 and go left then 2 kms on the right is The Pines. Rode this awesome trail and return on a regular basis. Built up berms and winding pines, along with fantastic flow make this trail superb indeed. highly recommend for all trail riders searching for adventure.
