Bird's Hill Gravel Pits - Trail, Winnipeg, Manitoba

Bird's Hill Gravel Pits - Trail, Winnipeg, Manitoba

DESCRIPTION

Not the best place to ride, as most of it's packed gravel but there is a very interesting trail that runs along the hill(?) side full of crevasses and tree roots, fairly flat but still challenging to cut a good line and technical tight, rough corners uphill. Coming down some of the rock faces has proven to be a good challenge, warning, pick your line carefully! It's nearly impossible to avoid various rocks/trees when sharp, deep crevasses make it impossible to turn without flipping/ sliding. An nearly invisible 10ft. drop wrecks havoc on many ill-equipped bikes. Do not try it unless you have a Monster T fork or something equipped for North Shore stuff. Quite scenic, WATCH OUT FOR DIRTBIKERS! They're not too common but keep the eye+ear out. Take the uphill trail to the right immediately after park gates, work your way around.

I hit the Bur Oak Trail yesterday and it was fun, but watch out for poison ivy, its everywhere!!
Going to try chickadee trail today, and hope to find some drops and climbs.

It's always constantly changing, sometimes for the better and sometimes for the worse. You can hit 60+ km going down the hill but don't fall into the water! Watch for sharp rocks to bend a rim or pop a tire. And watch for trenches because youll get stuck and it'll throw you clear off your bike.

Start from the top on the outside and find a nice trail from here...

There are a lot of gravel pits in the area and some fast trails on spring hill. Its a really large hill with some nice but rough trails.
