I see it's been a while since the last review. Well, these trails have really grown up. On the north side of Taylor Kidd Rd things are just about the same. The dirt jump track is still in good shape but the trails are more like 4 lane highways now. Just across the road is where the fat tyre fun is. None of it is marked so give yourself time 'cause you will likely get lost. There is a great mix of singletrack (some I have built) and doubletrack and sloppy 4 wheeler track (but we try to avoid that crap). New features too. Wooden bridge over a rock. Oh, and two wooden bridges over two rocks to a fast DH section. Lots of new stuff since the last post. A great workout for skill and endurance.

Customer Service

South side of Taylor-Kidd at the bridge is parking. The trailhead hides amongst the trees. Not hiding too hard, though.

There is an amped up trick park being built by Nitro Injected Bikers (Google it)in middle of town. Not sure of directions but be ready for big drops and big hits if going.

In the summer I ride this trail every day. It has a bit of everything, but if you are a freerider (in Kingston? really?) you will be disappointed. There is a lot of really technical, rocky and rooty stuff. You will end up on your ass unless you are really nimble. A few fast downhill sections, some nice single and double track, and even a small set of dirt jumps. Really a lot of fun if you can find everything, the trail is not marked at all. You can easily get lost, and there are often walkers and dogs, so be careful and be respectful.

Customer Service

Take Bath road to Collins Bay road, and make a right at the gas station. Go over the railway crossing and head down Collins Bay road to Taylor-Kidd. Make a left on Taylor Kidd, and head down 100-200 metres, just past the little bridge over the creek. To the right is one entrance, and there is another to the left. The right hand side has the dirt jumps, some fun single track through the woods and some fields, and some fun obstacles. The left side is far better though, if you stay on the trails close to the road there is some really great techincal stuff. If you go lower, the trails have been destroyed by idiot ATV riders. Once you get past the wrecked sections you find some really fun stuff.

There aren't any. Fort Henry is closed, The Rideau Trail is for hikers only, and the only other I know of is on private property. Head to J & J and you can get access and a jersey for $100.

Good trail overall, could use some signs or something to help riders get a direction of where the trail goes, there are lots of routes that will take you for 30 seconds before a dead end, good trail with good gardens and some nice objects to show off your trials skill

Customer Service

if you find yourself at a river with a bunch of intersections, get out to taylor kidd blvd as fast and possible and cross the street, here you will find the fastest toughest and most fun trails, loaded with bugs though

It's a great trail to hit right after work if you live in the area. Can't say if it's worth a drive over an hour but it is fun. Some good climbs and the rock gardens are great. Bring bug spray. I'll give it an overall rating of for location and because it's a fun ride.

Customer Service

Not very well marked.... best to ride and explore. It seems to always look different when I go.

In the immediate area Fort Henry. Anything else is a bit of a drive.

If these idiots would tell us how to get there maybe I could actually review this trail. I guess they just want it to be their romantic little hidaway.

The trails to the right have some nice fast trails, with lots of rock beds. The Left is a real fast single trail, up and down.

Customer Service

Well you go out Taylor Kidd until you just pass Collins Bay road. You will see a stream on the right. Just park on the side of the road and there are trails to the right and to the left.
