    North Perth Riders?

    Just wondering if there is anyone from around North Perth area ( Listowel, Palmerston, Harriston, Atwood, Wingham, etc. etc. ?

    We have some fairly boring flat rail-trails here so was wondering if there was some secret/hidden riding spots ( XC riding ). Some new riding buddies would be welcomed as well!

    I grew up in Wingham although live in Toronto now.... As you are finding, its not exactly a mountain biking mecca. You may want to check out the Carrick Tract ... south of Mildmay and a bit north of Fordwich. Not a tonne of trails ... but well built. You can have a fun 2 hour ride in there .... although you're going to be doing multiple loops on the same trails. They are the best I've found in the area. Check out this website for the collection of trails the guys in Bruce County have built, of which Carrick is the closest to you: Mountain Bike the Bruce | Ontario, Canada.

    There's also the Waterloo Hydro Cut which I assume you are already aware of. Probably a 45 minute drive for you from North Perth.

    Good luck .. and condolences on getting attached to such an awesome sport in such a sucky area of Ontario for riding!

    Thank you for that info bro!
    I will check our Carrick, always wanted to go bike the bruce as well.

    We have hit up the hydro cut a few times this year, probably the best we got going around here! And yes, about a 45min drive.

    We did find Maple Keys Sugar bush. It is a Maitland Valley Conservation area but poorly maintained and seems to be overlooked when damage occurs.., tons of 4 wheelers ripping everything up.
