I've been noticing this happening more and more! and not just here but other sections too.
Always at the crux section where you had to use a bit of technique and finesse to make it without dabbing. All made too easy now.

If the person doing this is reading this: if you simply must make the trails more like road riding, do it by _adding_ dirt. Or even rocks. Seriously: it will have the same effect, and when you finally decide to take up riding in a velodrome where you belong, the rest of us can at least undo your hack-job attempt at trail maintenance and enjoy the trails again.

A sign is sometimes a good idea. You'll most likely never catch the person.

I had a similar thing happen on a local trail; people where cutting a corner by like 10 feet, just to avoid some roots. I'd pile logs and trees over the shortcut, but within days they'd be gone. Repeated this process 2 or 3 times before I printed up a sign, laminated and tied it to a stick over a new pile of logs telling them to screw off.

They must have got the hint because that pile of logs is still there a few years later.

The left-curving banked structure that is seen in one of the photos above dated Oct 12 2020 should probably not be ridden. I didn't think anybody was riding it, until I saw some video footage just the other day from someone who did. The bottom part of the structure dropped about 18" in a land slump during sometime Jan-Feb 2020. After that, I believe some trail runners patched it back together, including some new cleats that assist them to run up it. As far as I'm concerned it was a hack job done by the light of the moon, and whoever patched it up certainly did not address the underlying instability of the bank there. And, those cleats are a good 2" high, just enough to kick the front wheel descending unless the rider is pretty steady. Bottom line, treat it with extreme caution as it is NOT a maintained structure.

jb-K (Jul 19, 2022 at 16:12)

The ground under this structure has continued to slump, and the exit ladder is now teetering off into space with a decided gap between it and the bank. whoever it is that insists upon riding this structure as it collapses in slow motion has dumped more and more crap and garbage on top of it to keep it 'rideable'. My cursory glance shows 2 layers of pallets, and 2 layers of 2x SPF off-cuts have been dumped in there within the past year. The original low ladder section is no longer even visible under this accumulation of crap. I hope whoever is dumping that garbage in there is planning to pull it all out again when the slump finally gives way for good.

You might want to do your research, on who built the trails before you go giving the credit to someone who's never taken part. That certainly wasn't my vision. And will never be. 2 sperate groups built the sperate trails. Timothy Charles owner of torba for foreplay. And Me and Hubble. Rollerflowster, however I was called Smiths Edge from 2013-15, before we finalized the trail from impatient riders.

From into the unknown did you go down the steep hill or continue straight? if you went down the hill you would be on noodle doodle, which continues through the wet section and then under the metal bridge.

Just retired to Nova Scotia (2020) and discovered Trailforks. Nice to see all the trails in the Don that I built thirty+ years ago are well ridden. I lived on Leroy in East York and spent many hours creating trail . Crothers woods, sewage plant, ridge, training loop, fruitloops, and many more. Man I spent a lot of hours in that valley. I'm back building trails on my property in Victoria Beach, NS. I have a mountain behind me. I forgot how much fun bench cutting and building impossible to ride switchbacks can be. Trailforks is amazing.

Cool to be able to see all the trails on Trailforks. I wrote this short description on my facebook page. Nothing to hide anymore - back then was not the same relationship with the city. LOL - coming out of the closet thirty years later. Back in the late 1980's, early 1990's I built mountain bike trails in the Don valley, Toronto. Mountain biking was in it's infancy back then. The epi center was Sunnybrook park. We would meet and ride crazy drop-offs and build crazy trails. The city decided to ban us because of erosion and being a public park . So I started building trails in the ravines of the Don valley. From Pottery road to Sunnybrook. Crothers woods, sewage plant, ridge, pre-catalyst - I spent many hours after work clearing away the undergrowth. My trails were very narrow, steep and crazy switchbacks. the harder the better! Initially the city was anti mountain biking and tried to close down the trails. During this time I started building in the East Don. far away from prying eyes. I built crazy trails with crazy drop-offs. They quickly gained a cult following. Others came in and built wooden north shore type features. The East Don was amazing. In the years since the city took over the west Don trails, removed all the crazy stuff, did a lot of rerouting. I was happy to see that. Only my friends know it was me that started it all. So why am I writing this. After moving to Nova Scotia I've been looking at Trailforks to find interesting trails to run and hopefully gravel bike next summer. I saw the trails in the Don Valley and started reminiscing. I came upon the write up for Boomerang, a trail I built in Taylor creek park. I never did finish it, the city shut it down. But today it is well established and in the description I'm recognized as the builder. I felt proud and thought I've got nothing to hide thirty years later. So that's my legacy to mountain biking in Toronto. Happy to see it so vibrant.

Damn that's a good trail. Old school. I don't think we've seen a new trail in the valley like that in about 10 years. Was only out for a light ride, and had my chainsaw with me for cleanup elsewhere. I thought this would be an over-rated blue and wasn't expecting anything like this. As an under-rated double-black It was too good to pass up, so I rode it with the saw anyway! And I don't see it noted here but it's strictly one-way, north to south. That means you'll want to ride the Breanne trail south to north, exit onto Clair and cross over the river to return.

Fun trail but way way way way more than a blue trail. Loved it!!!!

There are at least 3 skinny bridges that all have high consequences of failure. There are 2 climbs that are almost impossible if not severely challenging to extremely hard in effort.

I am being generous with the double black suggestion. It could almost qualify as Orange as two of the skinny bridges are unavoidable.
