Tight single track in abandoned farm fields down to Mill creek, then it opens up a bit, up some steep climbs and along the bottom of the escarpment.

It's easy to miss a turn after the steep climb going westbound from Mill Creek. After the climb there's an old stile into a farm field. Take a left to stay on this trail (can be a bit overgrown for a 100m through the farm field). If you head right, you end up on the Bruce Trail.

It is often wet until late May, and the next section south of the 6th side road can be very wet in the spring. It also tends to be overgrown sometimes.

The trail can be ridden both directions but it is easier to start on the 10th Line. Note the trail does continue on across the 6th side road and connects back into the Kolapore trail system. There are 2 fences that have to be climbed with ladders provided.

Note Kolapore Trail maps are available for $5.00 at the Ravenna General Store on Highway 2.

Disclaimer

Some of the land is private and hunting in the fall is common. Do not ride the first week of November.

       It was in brutal shape in 2017 due to rain, and lack of volunteers to weedwhack. It's riding great right now.
