Hey everyone I ride these trails 2 or 3 times a week im 26 and enjoy these trails very much. I bike from Sharon/hollandlanding all the way to bayview rd ( I think ) .The trail ends after you ride over a bridge and come to the main road does anyone know if this trail continues. I really enjoy the ride but would love to go even more with out turning around .If anyone has any more details on this trail please email me with map details.Ive look on other websites with map details but have found nothing ...

This trail is a relatively easy ride. I've done it with my munchkin riding in the back seat so you know its not too rough.

Just wanted to add that you can start at Mulock Dr near Holland River and park behind the Rogers Cable building. For the GPS equipped its here: N44 02.465 W79 27.505 There are 2 trails (either side of river) that will take you north through Wesley Brooks conservation area. Here you can pick up a further trail that goes up to the Tannery Centre on highway 9. Here you have a choice of trails either side of the river which both go up to Green Lane. Primary trail continues north of Green Lane on the west side of the canal and takes you up to Rogers Reservoir and continues west of Main St North almost to Holland Landing. In fact you can cycle into Holland Landing, but I'll let you figure out how. From here you can ride on the road north to Mt Albert Road east and then pick up a rough trail on the abandoned radial railway ROW just west of Leslie St N44 06.287 W79 26.835 Follow this back south to Green Lane (east side of canal) and then back towards town. Round trip is about 20km with next to no elevation change.

This is the crappiest trail I've ever ridden. I live 3 minutes away and I refuse to ride there, I would rather ride the curb in front of my house. If you have never ridden a bike before, this is the place to go.

Customer Service

None, stay away.

There is a hidden 'North Shore' type section in the area though. Go up the hill, around the corner, the entrance is behind a pine tree.

There is a double track along the south side of the trails and some single track up to the river (and one single track on the other side of the river). The trails are good for beginners or locals but I wouldn't recommend it to out-of-towners.
The area has a lot of potential but it hasn't been worked on enough.

Good side:
There is one neet trail down the bottom of a small gulley, it's kind of fun to fly down.
There is a half-decent jump made out of the roof of some small building, (no joke). the days Toad...

that's about it.

Customer Service

Don't do the gravel trail that bends between Green lane and Main, its not worth it. If you are going to ride there cross Main (or 2nd concession) to the west side near the dam. There are some half decent trails around there. There is a metal gate at the enterance.

these are hardly what i call trails. if you enjoy a leasurely stroll that won't take very long, go here. i used to live like 3 minutes away from these, and like the other guy i'd rather just go play around in a park on my bike.

To reach the west section, travel North on Main St. until you reach an entrance on your left, prior to the bridge. The entrance is marked by two large boulders and a gate that is usually closed to cars. Once you pass the gate, look for a path leading to the right. This will take you to a trail that at first runs directly alongside the Holland River.
Now, judging by the reviews given, none of you have visited this section. Though I totally agree with your reviews of the eastern section, it's really meant as a walking path, as opposed to a biking trail.
The western section (again WEST of Main St. North) has one of the gnarliest sections of trail I've ever been on -- and yes, I've been on a fare share. It has switchbacks, singletracks, a water-crossing, and jumps galore. Trails travel along dried riverbeds, underbridges, alongside a river, and are mostly hard-packed dirt. The section alongside the river, though, is covered in woodchips, no doubt designed to slow down the riders. One small area to look out for, full of jumps, is actually used as a playground for BMX bikes. Really, the only flaw that this area has is that it is relatively small compared to, say, Ravenshoe, a much larger (and slightly better) trail network to the northeast. Overall, this trail is designed for the intermediate rider, who's out to just have some fun on the trails. For those of you who are more adventurous, there's the massive jump at the BMX area. Remember, next time you want to ride Rogers, GO WEST, and don't forget to EXPLORE.

There are two sections: east of Main St. N. and west of Main St. N. Take the latter.

I read the last guys review and I just had to comment. For this guy to say that Rogers has some of the gnarliest sections of trail he's ever been on is hiarious. These trails absolutely suck, including the west section (Boy scout camp). There is no challenge at all for any serious mountain biker. The so-called playground for bmx bikes is full of jumps built by kids. They are around 2 feet high with flat landings. The 'massive' jump is basically a big ditch. You ride down a hill and you can catch some air when you come up the opposite side of the ditch. Too bad that the landing area is level with the lip of the jump, making for a very hard, very flat landing.

Customer Service

But bike back in car, drive East on Davis drive to Woodbine. Follow Woodbine North to Ravenshoe Road. Go East on Ravenshoe to McCowan. Go south on McCowan for about 200 meters. Park in parking lot, take bike out of car and go for a real ride.

There is another section of trail that is near these trails. I haven't been there this year, so I don't know what the conditions are like. If you are at the back of the Boy Scout Camp, you will see a really big steep hill on the other side of the train tracks. Push your bike up the hill (if you ride, you're crazy). When you get to the top, follow the treeline on your left. It goes for about 100 ft then you can make a left around the corner. Follow that for about 30 ft and look for a trail going into the forest on your left side. There are some good stunts in this area. The problem with this is you will spend a lot of time pushing your bike uphill and the bottom can get really wet.

2-5kms of mainly sleepy single track winding around a gut wrenching smelly Reservoir with a few silly ( and I mean silly ) BMX jumps. To wake-up you may play in Main St. busy north bound traffic. Overall Rating( one bent out of shape wheel :)

Customer Service

I't doesn't really matter!! If you have an Uni-Cycle you've found the right place, go east or west from the Main St. parking lot to a waste of time.

You can enter this trail at Mt albert road 1 km east of Leslie south side . The trail will run south west until you get to limestone screening pathway . It will go from double to single track along the holland river . Go underneath the bridge at green lane and south into Newmarket . Pretty easy , good for family riding . Watch for Dog walkers.
