      The Trowbridge Forest network of trails consists of 30km of mountain bike optimized single-track trail and 15km of Nordic double-track. The trails are broken out into two main areas;

      Trowbridge Forest & Kinsmen Park: Trowbridge Forest consists of approximately 15km of double-track Nordic/ multi-use trails and 10km of single-track spread throughout the rolling hills above the Current River. The forest is dominated by a single large mesa and many of the trails in the area either climb or descend the slopes. All of the trails are accessible from the parking lot at Kinsmen Park on Copenhagen Rd. Make sure to check out the views of the iconic Trowbridge Falls from the footbridge into the trails. Key trails in the area include:

      - Prospector Skills trail: A short beginner trail off the parking lot that offers riders a chance to learn all the skills they will need for the more advanced trails in the system. The main link is a pump track with rollers and berms. Two optional lines will introduce riders to large sections of rock work and a series of wooden technical trail features.
      - Conveyor Belt: This 2.2km machine built beginner access trail will provide riders with the best way to enter the heart of the single-track system. The trail is dominated by the rocky tread, high ridgelines, and even a few views out to Lake Superior.

      Shuniah Mines: Found in the center of Trowbridge Forest is the original legacy trail area know as Shuniah Mines. This section of the system contains 20km of purpose-built mountain bike single-track that winds through the century-old silver mine grounds and takes full advantage of the unique topography of tailing piles, rock features, and small ridgelines. The heart of Shuniah Mines is accessed easiest from the west end and the Balsam St trail head. Be on the lookout for the following signature trails;

      - Grand Chasm: A 1.1km hand-built tech-flow intermediate trail that is known mostly for its iconic ‘Chasm Bridge’. For locals, it is a playground of optional features and unique lines. Keep an eye open for the old mining relics.
      - Drift: A 1.6km machine built progressive flow trail that is the first of it’s kind in the region. High speeds, big berms and plenty of options to get airborne can all be found on this single-track rollercoaster. This trail is rated as intermediate.
      - The Otherside: An advanced trail that defines the identity of Shuniah Mines, this trail is dominated by large bedrock knolls, hand-built tread, and hand-cut cedar features. The signature feature “The Waterfall” consists of a large section of pure rock tread that descends over nine meters to the base of a small cliff line.

      In the heart of Shuniah Mines riders will find the Hydro Field Dirt Jumps. These advanced table-top jumps consist of a 6-pack main jump line ranging from 1.2 meters (4ft) to 4.25 meters (14ft). The optional B-line allows riders to opt-out before the three largest jumps.
