    any riding near Valens conservation area in cambridge?

    Taking the family camping, figured I'd throw a bike in if there are interesting places to go for a mtb or cross bike ride in the area

    If you bring your cross bike, you can put together a good toodle right in Valens (we ski there in the winter) but if you're an out-of-towner, from there, you're just a stone's throw away from Puslinch, which is my favouritest place to ride in all of Ontario. Guaranteed two hours of single track riding if you do it right.

    PS. You can look it up under the trail review section.
    Please enjoy seeing this terrible collection of me - something wonderful is about to happy.

    I'm having difficulty locating the trailhead, a lot of the links are expired, is it on the east side of lake puslinch? Looks pretty close to where we are camping, i'm heading up there for sure

    There's a nice Google map of the trail head here.

    From that parking lot, follow the single track that leads north. Follow your nose for a bit and keep a look out for either blue or yellow blazes and you're all set!

    Oh, and be sure to stop in for fish and chips at the shop beside the parking lot. Delicious!
