Rode this earlier this summer and it was a little overgrown. Hard to keep your speed when there is vegetation hitting your arms or face.

An addition to my earlier comment: the very beginning of the trail (starting from the north) to the first bridge is good. Then go over the bridge and pick up B. Lowtown to continue going south on enjoyable trails.

impassable towards ETC as there are many trees fallen over. The shortcut from Climbmax to Archery range overgrown with nettles and 2 new trees fallen - easy to port over.

Sky Pilot is the best option when the fences are up, then you can climb back up at the PA Upline to bypass it.

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.

It looks like someone cut out one of the roots in the Fourplay switchbacks... Please don't remove roots and other technical obstacles that have been a part of the trail for a long time just because they are hard... It's a double black trail after all.

This trail is unsafe. This trail is not fun.
Perhaps it was at one point, but the eroded hike a bike sections make this trail worthless in my opinion. Experienced riders of the Don likely know this, and can judge for themselves whether or not to ride this trail at their own risk. However newer riders rely on trailforks to explore our trail system. I know because three years ago I started riding the don for the first time, and the maps/ratings on here are how I learned what trails to ride, at my own pace.
This trail being labeled a blue is beyond misleading. It represents the trail as a relaxed, low risk, low consequence route through the area that is appropriate for riders looking for that sort of thing. This is contrary to reality.
I propose that the route on the map be truncated to the western section from don mills underpass to STD-Town connector. Unless I am mistaken this should avoid the deprecated sections. If we wish to leave the eastern section for informational purposes it should be rated hiking only, or very high difficulty to reflect the true level of risk/consequence associated.

That doesn't sound fun, for future reference, when you get to the train tracks, directly across them leads back down to a trail called standard deviation that can take you back to the main valley.

Or across the train bridge and then to your right is the start of Kitchen sink and Dr Quads.

Hope this helps Smile

With the amount of traffic in the don, it is better to over estimate the difficultly factor and hopefully keep under capable riders out of the big stuff, someone gets hurt and trails get shut down.. plus this party down exit is similar to the wallride section on flowster which is double black..

Trash Panda was built very recently & Garbage cow has been there long before. the builders were seriously in error to merge the trails. The Garbage Cow original route was perfect & works to this day.

Trash Panda might be popular but needs to be re-routed just before it meets Garbage Cow over the top of the hill along the ridge where a trail already exists & they can merge along the top of the ridge then split off.

That leaves one more issue where they again cross just at the parking lot. the real solution would have taken Trash Panda along the bush following Leslie south to leave the old Garbage Cow trail as it was. Maybe it should simply end when it meets Garbage Cow.

Anyway argue all you want, as usual someone will have to get hurt first for the right thing to be done or for the city to step in and demolish everything. Then we all lose.

The Don already has a ton of unnecessarily added trails that promote trail braiding, connectors and shortcuts.

IMO, the old garbage cow trailforks route was dangerous, it told you to ride uphill (backwards) on a much more popular downhill only trail.

I agree that you shouldn't ride the trash panda backwards, but the section where you ride north on the trash panda section was flat where no one would have extreme speeds.

IMO since the garbage cow was built before trash panda, it wasn't added to braid or shortcut the trails, and doesn't pose a great risk.

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.

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.

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.

The city of Toronto's account NECP has admin permission for the area, and they apparently didn;t approve of the trail, so they hid it from the map.

This is another example of someone who knows nothing about mountain biking trails irresponsibly submitting an inappropriate trail..

This trail is overgrown, traverses the pond, twice, which would be impassable when there is the usual wet season.

It is most likely a trail created by the homeless population that has moved into the valley during the Covid outbreak.

Should be removed or completely hidden

The best. Tons of fun features, but make sure to scope them out first time around. There is some exposure and a few blind turns, so take it easy until you know what’s coming. The trail has great flow with a couple challenging switchback climbs. Gap jump to wall ride at the end to finish it off, doesn’t get better than that!

This trail is not rideable, tried today. Some sections along the riverbank are totally gone due to erosion. The vegetation is way overgrown, and some parts have large wild rose bushes you have to negotiate with. It would definitely be worthy of reconstruction, but not worth your time in its current state.

I agree with prior poster. There are some super narrow, barely there, off-camber bits that give this trail exposure more like a black diamond. It’s not particularly challenging, but a little slip could equal a long tumble downhill.

With the ridge exposure and narrow, off-camber sections, this trail is no easier than a bunch of the other 'black diamond' rated trails in the Don Valley. A fun, flowy ride nevertheless.

Not really a black diamond trail if you enter from the bottom by the bridge as opposed to coming in from the highline (which is trickier). A lot of pedalling with few features, but worth the ride if you wanna hit PA which is a classic.

This is the kind of trail you have to ride twice.once to feel out the condition of the trail.make sure is good and dry.then realy giver!this is a fun trail.the jumps r simple and only require comitment.not the kind of jumps you want to slow down before u hit them.
I ride a teek superfly, 1x10 28 front and 11x38 rear.
100mm fox and 27.5 x 2.8 wtb rangers.just so a reader can get a better uderstaning of my experience.
Hate the comments ; easy trail .not hard at all.then u realize the person is ridding a 140 travel endouro bike.
That would make any trail in ontario easy!

I've ridden tits both ways. Going south is easier, the last section of switchbacks are carrying a soft tip later of soil with all the rain. Makes climbing harder.

Stay steady, easy gear and hard grunt!!

Immediately after climbing into the weeds and into the junk is junkyard estates. Which goes all the way to the top of the Sunnybrook estates. Next is Floating on a vine Before rolling down into a s berm into a wall ride a hill climb into the vines. Followed by the 2 jumps and exit.

STD is often badly overgrown whenever I’ve ridden. As others have mentioned it’s washed out in sections that run close to the river bank, at which point you pretty much have to hike. I regard STD as a necessary evil in that I only take it when I don’t feel like climbing back out of Motown.
