You can start riding here around late April as long as it's dry, the trails north of Dundas handle water much better than the trails south. South of Dundas the trail is easy and flat, with few roots, making it good for new riders. As the trail nears Dundas (from the south) it becomes more difficult. The trail is fairly tricky north of Dundas with some short steep climbs and steep uneven descents. There are a few optional jumps, drops and skinnies on the trail. The trail continues to get more difficult technically and physically after you pass the train tracks and cross under the 407. Most of the trail runs at the top of the bronte creek ravine and it stays close to the off camber edge most of the time, make sure you ride with caution! Note that the land past the 407 is private and sections are owned by an equestrian ranch and is frequently occupied by riders on horseback. Also of note is the land north of the CN rain tracks is Crown land and bow hunters are permitted during hunting season so don't be surprised to see hunters in November. Please use caution as this is an unsanctioned trail.

This trail is Unsanctioned, Ride at your own Risk!


Unsanctioned, technical singletrack

 Does anyone know who is managing this trail? I've been to the gap jump and skinny and they were all destroyed, I wasn't even able to get into the gap jump. If needed, I can volunteer rebuilding trails.

 We are. That 'gap' jump was ruined by shitty kids. The inner jump line was tables, built by a group of adults, and some kids cut them out, breaking the cardinal rule of trail building (poaching a builders line). If you know who these kids are, please let us know and tell them to stop altering the trails before we find them. That line will be shut down this weekend or next weekend by us, we don't f*ck around. Word is a group of kids on BMX bikes have been burning and destroying the features, if you know who these kids are, please inform us or tell them they are messing with the wrong adults.

how were the gap jumps on the trails themselves? Haven't been in in a few weeks.

 I went there about a week ago, and I was completely unable to access that gap jump feature. There were too much bushes grown, so someone needs to cut down. looked like the jump itself was still in good shape, however, needs a minor fix. lot of skinny features were destroyed(pallets were falling off from the log).
I haven't ride much yet as it was raining for weeks and dont live close to bronte, but someone really need to maintain this trail.

 we will be blocking off that line now that it's been altered by kids. The jumps on the trails will be maintained and that's it. Since it's spring, most trails will need maintenance and this is no different. If you have a weekend free let us know and we can sort it out.

 PEOPLE, PLEASE DON'T RIDE WHEN THE TRAIL IS WET. You are the ones ruining the trail.

 I was in riding with a buddy this morning and the gap jump and various other lines around it were completely cut off or destroyed. we tried to fix some of the skinnies but they need a lot of work. the big banked turns were completely destroyed as well. saw some tire marks that looked like BMX tires on the berms as if they rode it when it was wet.
