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 climbs and descents. There are a few optional jumps, drops and skinnies on the trail if you turn left and head down the hill after crossing the small river instead of continuing up. 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 edge most of the time, make sure you ride with caution

Access Info

Enter the bronte creek campground at the end of Upper Middle either by bike or by car (you may have to pay if entering by car). Make a left and head down the gravel road until it ends in a parking lot. Turn right past the small building and cut through or around the group campground. Follow the trail at the other end of the campground and turn right when you hit the ravine and you will be headed towards Dundas.

This trail is unsanctioned.
