      The Three Stage trails are extremely susceptible to damage in wet conditions. If you find that the trails are muddy, please turn around and come back another day. Do not deviate from the main path to avoid braiding of trails. Keep singletrack single!

      Three Stage is a network of 40+ km of mostly advanced single track. There is a wide variety of terrain at Three Stage, everything from 10+ minute flowing descents to rolling hills and even some flat single track. Within a two-hour ride it is possible to ride five different forest types from wide-open hardwood to tightly spaced cedars, creating a feeling of riding totally different trail networks on your ride. The trails are on a clay base so things can get a little sideways in the wet and the rocks will be just as unforgiving even in the dry.

      The trails at Three Stage are mostly unmarked and can be difficult to navigate unless you have a keen sense of direction. Finding a local to tag along with is usually your best bet for not getting lost. Three Stage is accessible from six trail access points. four of the access points are located on the 6th Side Road at the top of the Escarpment and the other two are at the bottom off of the 33/34-Side Road/ Pretty River Road at the bottom of the park. The main access is located at the 6th Line and 2nd Side Road.

      The trails at Three Stage are built and maintained by local riders so please respect the trails and pick up any garbage and downed logs. If using Strava, follow the trail and do not cut corners. If you are unable to ride a section of trail walk your bike, do not create a ride around.
