    -6c temp , a few inches of snow with more on boardwalks
    Ground is just about frozen but minimal ice and snow

    With drastic variations in temps from low to high and now back cold again , the trail is an ice field. The areas around the lake all drain into the lake so what is muddy in the summer is currently ice is most areas. Studs on tires recommended or you will go down numerous times like I did.

    Mud, very little features. Felt like a walking trail. More mud then I have ever seen and no rain the last few days with only mild before ace is a swamp for the majority of the 20k

    With recent rain and small amounts of snow the trail was very slick and lots of mud on about 40% of the 24.5k loop . Wood walkways were icy and very slippery. Trail in pine sections was dry. With the lake levels lower , shore lines were good Fat bike Over all still a good ride

    Rode Wildwood today on fat bikes and came away somewhat disappointed. Poor trail markings and endless wet spots made this trail ride less enjoyable than others close by like Fanshawe Lake. Seems Wildwood requires more time to dry out than some others. Will check this trail system out again this winter for some snow riding.

    good singletrack... will test your lungs early and often... has some decent climbs and good technical sections... can be a bit wet early/late in the year, but who doesn't love that...

    Great ride today! Trail had everything (I) enjoy... good climbs, technical bits and some fun things to try. Will be back to try reverse direction.

    Good track but poor signage at highway 9 I ended up on a snowmobile trail and in a cornfield then back on the original trail. Stepped in a water hole and had to walk my bike out. Will have to come back on an even day and try the other way around

    Good all a rounder. Lots of ups and downs and the black diamond sections are fun. The trail was very well taken care of with an easy to follow route. It will take you between 1.5 and 2.5 hrs depending on your climbing and fitness levels.
