too short, too many candy-asses wearing thier full bike suit and are walking down hills cause thier scared of busting thier bikes, get out of the way if you are one of these full xtr weeners who should really be riding through the beaches. but other that that and the semi-short length they are good to play around on.

It's actually a pretty cool trail system that I've rode so far. Crothers woods is not bad. Some just cruising path to get to another section which I didn't mind since its right in Toronto. It's more of an exploration I found which is pretty fun. I've found some pretty crazy areas that blew my mind!

Customer Service

Just find your way. I had too lol. I said before, you have to earn these trails. It's makes it an adventure.

A solid 30+ km of moderate to advanced level riding with a few "expert" sections thrown in for good measure. Locals have brought a lot of life to this system in the past few years making it an incredible resource for Torontonians. There are lots of places to ride in Southern Ontario, but the reality is most aren't as fun, or fun enough to warrant the driving out of town, when you can bike to this trailhead and find hours of fun.

The most popular route is the section referred to as Crother's Woods/The Ridge, which will be busiest, easiest, and the widest. Don't judge this trail system by this 4.5k stretch.

Not too bad, it will do cause it is close. I start at the bridge and the quck left down the dirt to the skid bridge bypass under the Go Track, you can go over, and go from there. After the Overlea bridge go left, some cool stuff in there. Come out to a little race track near the end, before you go back over/under the Go tracks. Keep going up the hill towards the bayview extension and near the top, go left down single track to the fork (take not this way) and you end up at pottery road with a bunch of posers standing around in spandex in a parking lot. Turn left to cross the bridge and left up the DVP trail and your next right, cross the tracks at the level crossing and go till the bridge, right after the bridge and right again into single track....that'll bring you back up. there are other off cambre trails near the loblaws but they arent that fun in the wet.

Forget what the last guy said, this is the STUFF! Lots of difficult singletrack, and even the unrideable stuff is rideable. It is busy sometimes, but never unbearable. It's about 1 hour round trip, and the trail is VERY different in each direction.

Customer Service

Go in through "Checkpoint Charlie", which is on the East side of Bayview about 1 km north of Pottery Road.

I love this stuff..I get a great 1 hour work out
starting with the huge hill at the railroad tracks
at bayview and Pottery. This trails runs through the valley and has hills, tight turns..rocks, stumps
and all of this on about a 3 foot wide trail. with oncoming bikers as well. Watch you don't fall down the valley hills!! Ive been advised NOT to ride when wet.

This trail is like a 7 km roller-coaster ride and not for the faint at heart. It's a challenge to first time and intermediate riders but the fun would out-weigh the intimidation factor. The path can be muddy depending on whether conditions. Since it is located within Park land, one must be careful to mind wandering pedestrians going for a stroll or walking their dogs. Aside from that, give it a try; you won't be disappointed.

Customer Service

From Don Mills Road, follow the path leading into a revine. It will take you along a dirt and muddy trail up and down the south slope of the Don Valley. Keep following the path until you reach a bridge underpass just west of Victoria Park Avenue paralleling Wilket Creek.

Not sure about this trail but Eric 'Konakiller' and King of the World are walking (presumably dragging their knuckles), breathing examples of why we should allocate more of our tax money in Canada to education. Please don't review any more trails guys. Its embarrassing.

Sweet trails if they are not wet or covered by snow or maple leafs.

Customer Service

If you are serious: try the roller-coaster single track in the hills and woods west of the railway.
