Claybank Hunting Reserve - TRAIL

Claybank Hunting Reserve - Trail, Avonlea, Saskatchewan

Lots of epic downhills, badlands riding, even some technical. Is this in Saskatchewan? You wouldn't know it...

Please, if you ride this trail, be respectful! The land-access around Avonlea is really touchy, we don't need some jerk to come and leave garbage or erode trails...

There's some really nice downhills here, and some pretty hefty climbs too. This is a special site, it has virtually nothing in common with other sites in the area. It's just too bad that the site is far from civilisation, so the trails get really overgrown. But this is a site you should try, it's fun.

At the trailhead, go west and take the red-marked trail up and descend on it. It's pretty nice...

The riding here is great, I'm from Australia and as a rule the riding around Regina (with a few exceptions) is not to flash. So claybank is a pleasant surprise, lots of heavy decents and nasty climbs, and can be tecnical in spots. It just needs a lot more peaple to ride here to get the singletrack nice and worn in and it could be stelar. A great place to get better on the bike, not for beginers

Customer Service

There are all sorts of ways to ride here, just hop on and go. If you get to the top of the climb in good shape you are a fit fella, but the down hill switch back is ace.

This is a fun place to bike around for half a day. Very small badlands area, not to much to ride on. Some neat singletrack right above the brick plant including the "three-part drop". The tree riding would be nice if it was more cleared out. I wouldn't say that there are any epic climbs here, but definitely medium ones. There aren't any downhills that an average recreational MTB'er couldn't handle.

Customer Service

Same as other reviewers.

thanks to the hard work of a few people, this area is getting better than ever. The new routes are amazing. As soon as the snow clears (2 more weeks?) and drys up completely check it out. Lots of new trails. Go out with someone who has been there a dozen times and can link all the trails and you will have an adrenalin blast.

Pretty tame stuff but fun none the less good place to muck around some steep decents short and not well planned out. there are lots of little trails but only a couple are worthy!!

Yes it's George I am from Saskatchewan. The important part of this review is that Claybank may be taken off the "able to ride" list in the near future. The Claybank Historical Society (private org) has put a bid in to purchase the lands which the trails are on. Anybody who has been accosted by the caretaker at the plant knows they don't like mtn. bikers. I have informed the S.C.A. and some of the clubs in the area to see if something can be done but received no response (typical).

Otherwise this is a great place to ride (and one of the few) in Saskatchewan. Badland terrain and probably the toughest stuff outside the Greenroom at White Track. Great if you like challenging technical riding without going "North Shore" type man made stuff.
