    Upset Dagmar closed...

    I'm new in Toronto area, and wanted to do some biking in Dagmar. But it's posted closed for biking permanently! Do people still ride it, and what happens if you get caught?
    I bet this happened because too many riders avoided paying the entrance fee, and the owner got upset...

    Dagmar Closure

    Stan - ...Was at Dagmar on last day of opening in 2004 and spoke to owner. Reasons for closing were economic. He said that he made more in 1 day during ski season than the whole season of riding. This didn't make sense to him given that he had difficulty finding reliable ticket attendants and often had to do this himself. He had been hoping that business would increase over the many years that he was open but this had no happened.

    Anyway he said that he leased the land through which the singletrack runs and hoped that others would continue to ride it (if you know the back way in). I believe that the land is owned by Durham Region.

    Cheers

    I can easily believe this economic problem.
    It sounds like I could ride there if I new the layout. Since I've never been there before, could you tell me where this back-door is, and where I could leave the car? From the way the no-entrance-sign is verbed, I wouldn't think of leaving the car at the main entrance...
    Do you also know where I could get a map of the single tracks?
    Thanks

    Dagmar Closure

    Sorry - Wish I knew myself. I believe that there is an entrance somewhere off the Durham Forest trails but everytime I intend to find it, I end up having so much fun racing around Durham that I skosh the "hunt" until next time.
