There are actually two sides to Greenwood. The South is where most people ride which has a good 7-8km loop of singletrack and doubletrack . The trick is knowing how to put it together. There's also a good section of man-made stunts and drops if you look carefully. However, the gem of the area is Greenwood North, north of the fifth concession. Park at the parking lot by the bridge. Explore this area and you'l find over 10km more of mostly winding, hilly singltrack with creek crossings, bridges (one 40ft'er), nice downhills and tons of challenge. Both areas have a good mix of riding for beginners and experienced riders once you know where to go. The two areas together give you about 1.5 to 2 hours of riding if you find all the singletrack.

Customer Service

In the south follow trails around the perimeter for the longest ride and work your way in. The best singletrack is on the West side along Church st. In the North start at the bridge on concession five and head up (north) the trail along the creek - it's the most easterly trail. Once you're at the top of that trail explore towards the West while heading back south.

This is a good trail for MTB beginners. Not too tough, but enough logs, roots, twists, downhills and uphills to be challenging and fun for the less experienced riders.

This is an awsome trail. There is a lot of getting to know this area before you know where the best areas are, but when you find them, they are great.

Customer Service

Go down the Duffins Trail, take your first right. Keep riding until you see the bridge and cross it, take a left from there. Once on that trail,take your first left, then a right. Once you climb the "stairs" keep going straight and turn right. Explore from there!

Its a good single and double track. Great ride, not too technical but has some challenging downhills. The uphills can give you a nice workout. Watch out for dogs though, it might be nice if have a bell. Also some bridges needs some repairs. The place also has a beautiful scenary and some animals along the way. Overall its a nice trail to go to for beginners and seasonal bikers.

Customer Service

Not much of a route here cuz its just a loop. Just go inside the forest and enjoy the ride

I recommend that you do the race course that was there. Then do it backwards, it is fun both ways. If you plan on going here, people tend to bring there dogs. This is a dog walkers heaven. If you haven't been here take some time and basically go exploring. There are some fun bridges which cross the creek. I give Greenwood a five because it is really close to the cities, and it has stuff fo everyone. Also it has a lot of potentail for future trails.

Customer Service

Head north on Westney, past Taunton look for entrance on the left.

Greenwood is a nice ride but not too technical. Riding there last year I ventured into the sandpits for a bit, all of a sudden people, decked out in army clothes, started jumping out of trenches in the ground and running around. It turns out that some local army cadet group likes to train or whatever there. Greenwood is great for a nice relaxing ride but is busy so bring your bell.

Customer Service

Avoid sandpits

Close to the city, I can ride there from my location. I can consider it my local. It has some tough uphills and screamin' fun downhills. Both singletracks doubletracks, it is fairly smooth. Watch out for dogs!!! I take beginners there, but they find it a real challenge. There is trails for the first time rider to the seasoned expert.

Customer Service

Turn Left after the first downhill and your on your way.

Great trail. I only ride it once a year for the Northern Gnarly Charly bike race, otherwise I just ride in Uxbridge area forests cuz I don't have a license. There is some sandy spots that can make hills hard, but fun. I came third at it this year! Again it's a great semi technical trail.

Nice sweet single-track in a beautiful hilly ravine forest. Larger than it may seen, and some sections great to have all to yourself. Beware of snobby local class folks who feel they own the place (while they walk their dogs). Ride on the west and north sides for least confrontations.

Customer Service

Try the racing trail that is easily found on the west side.
