Trail Information

The Brant Tract has approximately 20km of trail and is located just south of Paisley on Concession 12.  Trails range from tight and technical, to open and flowing concepts, and are able to satisfy beginner riders to the more advanced cross-country rider. While riding the property you will view spectacular vistas of valleys, wetlands and towering pines. Don’t forget to pack bug repellent!

Season to Ride:

July, August and September are the best months to ride the Brant. Most of the trails have a clay base, and are hard packed and fast when dry, while slick and daring when wet. Avoid after a heavy rain.

Trail Surface Type:

Boardwalks, bridges to mineral soil and clay. Slippery when wet!

What to Ride:

The Brant tract provides great riding opportunities for all ages and skill levels. If you like open and flowing type trails with little challenge or elevation change, then try the Brain Buster, Rabbit Run, Red Pine loop and Rolling ferns. For the more seasoned rider who likes tight and technical trails with lots of elevation change, take the Brainbuster to the Express and over to Devil’s Elbow and through the Shocker and Razor’s Run. For more of a challenge include the Widow Maker, the Maples and Rick’s Retreat. This is a great circuit and is guaranteed to get your heart pounding.
