    Hydro One

The Hydro-Line is one of the most challenging trails in the area. You WILL hike your bike on the way in, for a decent chunk. Don't Get Discouraged. Even tho this one is a burner on the way in, the view at the end of trail is spectacular. Swamp, mud holes, and grass covered bog that eats trucks are just some of the highlights. The ride out is sloped downhill, making the egress easier. Late summer blueberries abound, so be aware for Back Bears. Also take caution for the odd 4x4, or berry picker.

Access Info

Alltho this trail is totally on Hydro One property, it has been used without issue for decades all year round.
