The Boundary trail was created as a way to by-pass using the double track. With features like Gnome Rock, skinnies and rock walls and rock drops this trail is great fun and a good challenge.

       This trail should be black diamond at least. Go for a ride at any trail network within 50km of here and try another blue trail for comparison. An intermediate rider doesn't stand a chance of clearing this kind of trail without dismounting multiple times.

       I agree with the other comment, this trail is black diamond or double black diamond. Comparable trails anywhere else in the GTA are marked as such. The rocks, roots, and difficult terrain make this a very challenging ride, with parts that require dismounting.

       Rocks almost the entire length. Much more difficult than other blue trails. Very hard on the bike, peddal strikes and bottom brackets strikes were nearly unavoidable.

       Folks, the collection of trails in any trail system are ranked relative to each other.

      When visiting a new trail network it’s best to start with the basics and see if they’re like the basics at your home trail network. Every trail network is different. This trail is blue because it’s harder than a green and easier than a black inside this trail network.

       I love the Boundary loop A & B. Great job HAFTA maintaining the trails! What a gem. I'm glad the people above will be staying away from the trails. Why chance to break your kickstand.
