      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.

      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 private parcels were converted to public Park Preserve. Volunteers are currently working on a new sanctioned access trail, upgrading structures, and providing signage. To contribute to this effort, please contact MRWA. Most of the current entry/exit trails are on 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.
