Here's a spot that has two trails running parallel from North to South, connecting Colonel By, Sunnyside, Bronson PL and Bronson Ave. Up at the N. end are currently two medium dirt jumps, one sends you in between two large trees, over the path of the other. I like to start up on Bronson Ave, hit the first jump and then go down to the middle and loop back up around the big tree. Then climb up towards the N.E. and loop back into the bush at the top in order to hit the field goal jump and bomb through the woods to the apple tree.

Access Info

Between Colonel By and Carleton U. Lots of ways into the trail from every side.

This trail is unsanctioned, use at your own risk!
