All trails have a variety of amenities. Our benches and picnic tables are the perfect place to rest up between rides and outhouse washrooms are available seasonally from May to November. Our trails are maintained bi-weekly and have signage throughout helping you match your skills to the level of difficulty found on the property. Be sure to remember your helmet.

Trail Rating Chart
Trail Rating Chart

Every cyclist rides at a different level. Some trails may be easier for some riders while others are more difficult. Our trail rating system will give you an idea on what to expect in all our parks. Trail ratings are relative to the level of challenge found on a particular property.  An easy trail at the Lindsay Tract could be more difficult than an easy trail at the Brant because of the unique terrain and the abundance or rock. New riders should develop confidence on easier trails before moving on to more difficult ones. If the trail you're riding on seems too difficult, get off and walk.
