    Really there is no trail maintneance done in the Rouge. It's pretty much the way it was 4 years ago but with more erosion.

    I thought there was no riding allowed in the park? Aren't there signs at the entrance?

    As far as I know riding is not allowed, but that was about five years ago, so policy may have changed.

    Supposedly it isn't but everyone pretty much ignores it. And no one complains. Just be friendly and nice to each other.

    From sources I have talked to, they know they can't stop mountain bikers from riding in there. All the signs are really for is to decrease the CofT's liability.

    ya, there are signs, i was there today for a ride b4 fathers day dinner... a like 55yr old hiker swore at me after calling me blind..etc... he was a douche, i tried to be nice, but he was an arsehole...

    there are many rules on signs that tons of people break,

    ie. dogs off leash, not supposed to be
    people feeding birds and shiet, not allowed.
    hell some people sneak like fishing gear into the lower river area and thats not legal...

    so, do what i do, be nice to hikers, people with dogs off leash, and then they cant complain...if we get kicked out, ill find another place to go, but for now its close...

    I was particularly impressed by this lovely example of land reclamation.

    The dump is even worse. Its a giant land slide. I don't get it.

    I was in there for about 4 hours today. Brilliant. The Don Valley can suck it.

    The Rouge is a TORBA free zone.

    The rouge is a nice change of pace from the Don thats for sure and especially no aroma from a treatment plant.
