      A collection of trails on granite rock faces and pine and lichen barrens. Much of the area burned in 2008, providing a unique, stark riding experience.

      The recommended entrance is Spar trail, from the grassy park parcel on Mica Crescent.

      Fight developed as unsanctioned trails on private and public lands, and trail has been lost to urban development. In 2017 the McIntosh Run Water Shed Association (MRWA) was granted permission by Halifax and DNR to bring the trails that are on public land into a permanent sanctioned system and build new trails. As part of this effort, some of the private land on which there are trails was converted to public Park Preserve, and those informal trails can now be adopted and made permanent. Volunteers are currently working on new access trails, upgrading structures, and providing signage. To contribute to this effort, please contact MRWA. The old entry/exit trail crosses private land and so will remain unsanctioned. SSS, Gords, and parts of the Flat Lake loop north of Flat Lake are also on private land so will remain unsanctioned, at least for the foreseeable future.

      Ride and enjoy.
