In Jackson's Park, a trail runs parallel to Fairbairn RD. This is Peterborough's newest, fastest, hardest and most advanced course. It has existed for many years, but has recently been given a facelift by a small group of dedicated riders. Expect berms, tables, a 20 foot road gap, a 27 foot sender gap (currently nonoperational), and a 15 foot wooden creek gap. It is possible to ride the trail without hitting the gaps. Ongoing work is being done to provide alternate lines for the those with less airmiles. Future plans include improved drainage and trail restoration.

Access Info

Difficult to find. Travel through Jackson's Park, take a right turn into the forest while heading north down the path, if you get to the first wood bridge with a open field to your right, you have gone too far. The entrance is the last one on your right before the bridge.
