Going up to Buckwallow on Sat (now it looks like a chance of showers.. sigh) never been there - suggestions? any specific trails that I shouldn't miss? I'll ride almost anything (at my pace) but then no huge drops as I'm interested in self preservation... Old&Slow
I am planning on going on Sunday to be there by noon. I live in Mississauga and would show you around if you can wait till then. I am also old and slowish. There are no sudden trail features to surprise you. Dew Drop In and Weasel have some advanced rock features and those would be the only two I would give a pass if you are concerned. West D Nile is all whale backs and awesome. If you go at your own pace like I do, nothing sneaks up on you and you may have to walk a feature or two, but no biggie. Every trail is built with cycling in mind and has great flow. The trails are marked with hooves for difficulty level. You will see that the harder trail markings typically refer to a few features, while the rest of the trail is totally rideable. Just go in there and hit every trail head. You will not be disappointed.
PS shoot me a PM if you are interested in sharing a ride.
only 40% chance
that means 60% chance of no rain.
i believe the trails were marked from 1 to 5 hoofs depending on there level of difficulty.
i found some marked 3 were more challenging than some with 4.
i guess it all depends on what your specific riding strengths are.
Team Van Go
the older I get the better I was
SA thanks for the offer, Saturday is my day unfortunately .... Looking forward to this..
Ask Mike how much longer he plans to be open if you get a chance.
Bit bummed, just realizing I didn't reach there once this season.
Have fun! (pretty easy thing to accomplish there lol)
Yep...we love Mike and Buckwallow 8-)
In this day and age of miserable and self absorbed people.. I have to say what a nice guy Mike (and crew) are.. he took the time to say hello - talk to me about the trails and make suggestions.

A new trail opens, so there is the question of a name. Hoof Hearted or Buck Naked?<br /> <br /> </p>
