Mountain Biking Turkey Point Provincial Park

****   Add a review
#25 of 312 mountain bike trails in Ontario
#1008 in the world

This is a very well maintained and signed system of trails. Trails are not overly difficult nor hilly, however have enough technical challanges to make it worth the trip. The club that maintains these trails have done a great job!!!! I will try to add some pictures of these trails at a later date.

Getting there
From either Hamilton or London, take the 403 to Hyw 24 SOUTH to Simcoe, ON. Stay on hyw 24 for approximately 9 km to Turkey Point Road. Turn left (south) on Turkey Point Road and drive for 2.5km, on the left side of the road you will see a parking area. There is a steal gate that blocks vehicles from entering the Provincial Park, several bike trails enter and exit this paved road.

    Only certain trails open due to excessive amounts of snow . Local club had run their groomer but the soft snow and mild conditions made for a slow grind with lots of sliding and spinning .

    The Turkey Creek MTB Club builds/maintains the trails at this Provincial Park and on private lands. There is ALOT here to ride of various skill levels. Some areas are a bit sandy. Alot of roots.

    Lots of fun. Nicely maintained. Beautiful forest. Can't wait to go back but will bring some serious bug spray. Deer flies are bad right now. (August)

    This place is awesome! Fat bike snow wonderland for sure. In Southern Ontario I can't think of another place that has more single track then Turkey point. I put in 3.5 hours of riding and I think I only did fifty percent of what is open. You can easily ride here for two days and not hit the same trail . Just a little warning the trails are very tight. On average trails are about foot and a half wide so if you are more experienced rider and enjoy natural groomed trails like me you will love this place. I am a downhill guy but starting to love fat biking more and more. I Love the way forest looks in the winter. Go ahead and go to Turkey point you will not regret.

    I am not on Strava buy when you wish to come just post a comment under Durham forest reviews and I will see it. I update conditions at least once a week.

    Thank you. I will go on Sunday and hopefully it will be snow covered again. I am a member of Durham Mountain Biking Association so if you ever want to ride Durham forest I can always show you around. We groom our trails constantly so you will have a good time.

    Thank you very much for your feedback on conditions. I love to ride at Turkey Point but didn't want to come all the way from T.O and be disappointed with icy conditions. It supposed to snow today some more so hopefully all of the ice will be gone by Monday and I should have a good time riding. Thanks again for your update.

    Hopefully it snows a bit soon so al.of the icy can be covered with snow. I was there a few weeks ago after when they had a race and it was pretty icy. That was the first time this season when I felt I needed studed tires. I guess icy conditions are normal for Turkey Point in the winter.

    I was planning on coming down from Toronto to do some fat biking. After this big snowstorms do you know the conditions of the trails?

    Awesome place. Got some tight spots here and there so if you are riding a bike with wide handlebars be careful . Trails are in great condition and for the most part fun and flowy. Enjoy!

    Great trail system with something for all levels... good length, fun berms and switchbacks. My only beef with this trail is that it is not that difficult to get lost into unmapped/private territory...

    Fast flowing singletrack. Not much climbing but still a good workout. Sandy trails with some roots. Definitely a hardtail course

    Nice flowing singletrack through the pines, smooth trails with few roots and rocks, sandy in a fair amount of spots but does little to disrupt the flow. No real challenging climbs, signed well enough to get around the park. Overall a good novice ride and fast enough to have fun as an intermediate.
