Trail pass or membership in Get Outdoors Parry Sound required to ride!!!

Updated for 2017, this is the race loop used in XTERRA Parry Sound. It consists of a balanced mix of doubletrack and technical singletrack. The doubletrack is largely on wide ski trails with ample room to pass. You are typically never on doubletrack for more than 1000m at a time.

The singletrack is all purpose-built, MTB-specific trail. It mostly follows the natural contours of the granite terrain - and there is certainly plenty of exposed granite! On a couple of sections, boardwalks have been built to cross sensitive wetlands. Ramps also exist to facilitate climbing onto or descending from some of the granite ridges. Faster racers can complete the course in approximately 40 minutes, but novice riders will find the singletrack sections challenging.

This is a course that rewards pre-riding!
