    Copeland Forest Trails!

    Here is a video of our adventure at Copeland Forest about a week ago. Loved the trails there, some really cool downhill runs, and just loads and loads of trails!
    Make sure to have trailforks loaded as nothing is marked and it's easy to get lost. Check it out!

    Copeland is a special spot. And yes, there are bears in the forest.

    Now try riding 5th Dimension in the snow.. Not the hardest trail, but its definitely a fun one.



    Its one of those places that is such a spiderweb of trails, that even with TrailForks, you're more likely going to still get lost. Its best to just go in and explore. I mapped it all of it last summer when my shoulder was busted. There are a few trails missing...

    Do these trails lead to horseshoe Valley? Did you get into their trails?

    Horseshoe valley is literally across the street. You can go under Horseshoe Valley Road using one of the golf cart tunnels.

    Can you post entrance of your ride? The default entrance to Copeland forest is plain parking lot near railroad tracks. Is that where you park? I did not see the tunnel leading to horseshoe resort.

    You can park at the Horseshoe's Nordic Ski center. It is literally across the street. By that, if coming from the 400, instead of turning right into the main Horseshoe resort parking, just turn left instead and park in the dirt parking lot.

    Its all on Trail Forks.

    I went to Copeland forest on Saturday. It was really fun but the long drive wasn't fun. I didn't see any bears there

    nice! the long drives certainly aren't fun, but I personally have nothing that close to me that is that great, so it's just what I have to do....

    When does hunting season begin? Do I have to to wear orange vest so hunters won't shoot me?

    You need to look up the different hunting seasons and what is allowed in the forest.

    Wearing an orange vest is at your own discretion, but if you get shot, well....

    Rode the Copeland Forest trails for the first time this weekend. Great place to ride. Rode around in circles at first, but with the help of trailforks, found a nice 20k loop, for a total of 27km. My only gripe is that the trails are not marked.
    Well-worth the drive from Bolton, will go again.

    I like especially the rail trail at the bottom of the ravine.

    I was lost on Saturday in the woods. I rode way off course toward private properties.

    OK, I've been there before but need advice. Where is the safest place to park when you have valuables in the car?
    Stopping by Copeland on my way on a camping trip. I'll be alone, so the car will be unattended for a few hours.

    Park at Horseshoe resort and ride across the road/through tunnel into Copeland via Nordic chalet. Lots of staff out and about getting things ready for summer.
