Easy trail with a few small obstacles, perfect for introducing someone to mountain biking. Can also be fun to ride flat out on as there are just enough twists and turns to keep it interesting, but keep your head up for oncoming traffic!

Metrolinx fence builders have installed another fence at north bridge under tracks. Very annoying. Can't they allow passage below the train bridge...

Tree down by Lazy Possum. Can hoof it around the tree, but... either is going to need to be chainsawed or the detour will turn into a trail.

 Rode it South to North today. Very dry and fast. Trail elves did a great job on the downed tree, thank you!

 Terrible visibility in the summer months. Keep your head up and watch out for oncoming traffic (announce your presence on blind corners).

 Agree. Very hard to see oncoming traffic, narrow and super tall grass.
But nonetheless, lots of fun !
