This nice trail in William A. Switzer Provincial Park. Not many people they riding this trail, why not? Park at Kelly's bathtub and looking for gated trail with a big maps. Double tracks trail with lots of roots and spongy mosses. You see a moose, fens, plants and karst and kame geologic, whalesbacks, kettlespot formaetions. Beautiful riding this trail. Mr. Scott infocenterman and Mr. Randy is warden of Park they are nice man. Go ride bike at this one, a guaranteed.

       Is this suitable for riding with a bike trailer (it's a single child trailer but will have a cat & small dog in it)?
