Waterdown - Trail, Burlington, Ontario

Waterdown - Trail, Burlington, Ontario

DESCRIPTION

Great valley system with lot's of great downhill, and uphill challenges. So many inter weaving trails that it would take months to ride them all (or to learn your way around). Not "technical" per say, but with nice logs and extreme climbs and decents

Haven't seen any updates in a while so i went back to see how things were progressing, I used to live in Hamilton and ride here alot, after moving away for a few years and coming back alot has changed. all the wooden features (not just the random fun stuff, but the needed wooden bridges for crossing water) are falling apart. It looks like they are putting in an extension to the Bruce trail, maybe a rail trail or a walking path but some nice treed sections have been removed and cleared. I would take the time to fix some of the stuff here but with all the walkers on the trails now and the new Ontario Regs, any type of wooden feature is being tore down by the town in fear of being sued.....Welcome to Ontario

These trails are composed mainly of rocky limestone at the west side of the top of the trails, and as you progress south deeper into the valley, you find smoother clay and dirt surfaces. The rocky stuff can be intimidating for beginner riders because it seems and all there is on the trails.

Customer Service

I suggest newer riders start on the east side of the trails on Dennis St. and ride down the fire road into the valley. There's a much more progressive learning curve at that point. AM enthusiasts and advanced riders are recommended to start at the Rona parking lot as the trails are connected directly to the back lot of Rona.

I'm from waterdown, and this a great place to ride. On the oposite side of the train tracks of the bike park, their is a nice course with a huge berm. There's a tiny ladder jump halfway down that says made by Sony. I made that.

A Blast - the 1st time I rode here I thought I would get lost and never get out - so many trails to follow - great variety to chose from - climbs are challenging - for those skilled enough, logs, and home made bridges I came prepared for my second trip - bought a map - recommend you do too :-) so far I have come across 3 trails which are colour marked - Yellow, Green, are found north of the tracks and Red is south of the tracks - Yellow requires some skill, step hills and logs, Green offers the same with fewer obstacles - I have not attached Red yet but will post as my adventures continue. Ran into a few guys (1st timers from Milton way) who were lost, tired and impressed, "a hell of a workout - hope we find our way out before dark :-)"

This trail system is very fun and well put together. There are some pretty technical trails, lots of roots and logs, and a ton of quick ups and downs.

Customer Service

I've never found much of a "regular" route. It's all fun and all trails seem to loop back.

I love this place.. It's really fast, very large, and above all FREE! I've only begun to explore this place, but so far I have found lots of waterfalls, lots of limestone, lots of hills, and lots of fast ups and downs. Jumps, train tracks.. You name it, it's here. Navigation is the key here, plan on spending around 4 hours to see a good chunk of what is available. If you just want a long trek, with out worries of getting lost, just stick to the bruce trail. I did 20km in here one day and didn't cross the same stretch of trail once. With that said, it's big.. how big I dunno.

Customer Service

Follow the White blazes, and pull off where you feel like you want to venture.. The white blazes are the Bruce trail.

I have ridden alot of the trails in this area, and by far the best route is the orange trail. Some parts are really technical, with lots of ups and downs. The trail keeps getting longer every year! The newer section is a real thin singletrack.

What I like best on these trails is no rocks!

Customer Service

The fun starts on the orange trail. The best way to get on the orange trail is go to the bike shop in Waterdown, they'll tell all you need to know.

Out of all the trails within 50 km (Kelso, Dundas Valley, ) these trails are by far and away the best! But I think I'm biased because the trails are about 5 min. from my front door.
