    Buffalo Pound Provincial Park

This is an amazing run to continually repeat and challenge yourself on. Roots is a tight, twisty trail with several challenges. While mainly a downhill trail travel is in both directions and the trail is a challenging technical climb. The trail is not rideable in wet weather and due to the tree cover can take several extra days to dry.
