      The trails at Porcupine Ridge are expert-level trails. Please be aware that all trails - including the main trail - include technical features, climbs, and in some cases built features. Once you begin on the trails, there is no easy way out.

      A rocky technical trail system located across the road from Santa's Village, 7 km from downtown Bracebridge. Make the initial climb up and be treated by trails that will test your skills at navigating rocks, roots, and even some build features. The trails highlight the Canadian Shield by weaving up, over, and through many technical features. Make sure to bring water, snacks, and some bug spray along for the ride. Please note that wearing a helmet while riding is mandatory.

      E-bikes must meet federal rules of 500 watts output @ 32 km maximum. Units exceeding this or modified are not authorized. All e-bikes must have 1 million liability in force while using club trails.
