East Side of Bronte Creek - TRAIL

East Side of Bronte Creek - Trail, Oakville, Ontario

Single track with some downhill and water crossing. Watch out for the horse riders and walkers. This is not by all means a technical trail but good enough for those who just starting out. Try riding here at night and it becomes a lot better. Watch out for the 100'drop on the left, never heard anyone falling off the cliff. So don't be the first.

Enter at the campsite and follow it to Hwy 5. After there it gets good. Real singletrack with berms, rock gardens and a few jumps. Go past the 407 and it gets even better. Worth a ride if you live close by. Its a solid 45 minute ride.
Look for the 3 tracks that go down the side of the ravine just past the creek. There's a few log rides, jumps, and teeter-totters down there.

Enter at campsite, continue past hwy 5 to just past the 407.

It has been lengthened quite a bit since some of these original reviews were written and now goes past the 407. The farther north from Bronte Campground you go, the less people you see. Follow the trail from the cliff-face going north, till you hit Highway 5, cross the road and look slightly right for the continuation of the trail, it is a dirt parking spot 2 cars deep, look left and you see the trail. Keep going and it gets a bit gnarlier and technical, there is a section where you can stay high and bypass an old broken bike maze that used to be cool. there is also a couple steep climbs to get back to the top if you opt to go low. Either one will get you there. You eventually come out right under the 407 bridge, keep going and find the trail past it, it eventually ends at a horse farm, or goes left sideways down the cliff to the river and dead ends. I usually sneak out the left side of the horse farm, but beware they have big dogs that will occasionally chase you. The other option is to turn around and go back. If there is an alternate way out, I'd love to hear it. I agree it is not as good as Kelso, but for a local quick sprint, it is quite good and I think it is useful. The higher end of it is more challenging, especially if you go hard.

Ride into the campground off the end of Upper Middle, bear left past the washroom at the carpark and look for trails, turn right and follow your nose. Don't fall off the edge, I think that might suck as it gets off camber and sketchy at the upper end.

Yeah, it's a campground and people walk the trail.

Keep riding and look towards your right when you get to where the left drops off. If you do, you'll see the trail built by some hard core dudes that has a load of ladders, teeter totters, alley oops and some half decent technical riding. It's about five meters off the main trail, but you have to keep your eyes peeled for it.

the trail through Bronte Park is okay, but keep your eyes open for the other trails cut through the area. lots of ladders, a teeter totter or two, some good technical rocky downhills are here.

when you're about half way through, where you can drop off 100' on the left, stop and look to your right. about 5 meters off the main trail is the one cut by the hard core cyclists.

This trail is now a Provincial Park campground. So unless you want to ride around looking at campsites in a forest in the middle of suburbia....don't bother!

Follow the directions to any place else!

this trail is garbage.
a sidewalk is more difficult.

DO NOT WASTE YOUR TIME DRIVING TO THIS TRAIL! This trail is convenient if you live within biking distance and want a fast 30-40 minute trail ride. I live around the corner and I ride there in the morning before going to work.

This trail is a multi-use trail. Mainly used by dog-walkers (like me), hikers, and runners, so share the trail. Most of the dogs (and owners) are safe. Watch out for dog poop at the beginning of the trail. Sometimes the dog owners are too lazy to pick up after themselves.

I figure that it is at least good for getting out for a 40 minute ride before work and do some skill building.

Customer Service

There is only one trail in this part of the park. Heading west along Upper Middle from Bronte Road, there is an entrance to the left. Fairly obvious.
