    Night riding is prohibited in Walker's Woods and Glen Major (to the SW of Durham Forest across the concession road). The confusion comes from the fact that in getting the word out about this ban, they chose to put notices on vehicles parked in Durham Forest.

    See this thread from the fall:

    Who put's the " night riding not allowed " flyers @ Durham ?

    I've ridden Durham @ night. I have a GPS, so as long as the batteries are up I'm OK. Not spooky @ all. I saw a deer during 1 ride. It didn't run away frightened towards Courtice as the TRCA folks would have you believe.

    1 of the nights I rode in Walker Woods before the ban, I saw 2 deer. They just stood & looked @ the light. Either that or they had died of shock & hadn't fallen down yet.
