    GTA isn't very hilly. I think there's one at Kelso, which is Milton.

    Keep us informed if you find any good ones

    Not sure if they do downhill (I thought they held a race series at one of the two few years back though?), but maybe like skyloft or dagmar (lakeridge road north of Oshawa).

    Yes there are some, many of them are hidden and will remain so to prevent them from being cut down. I suggest you chat with your local lbs to see if they might be able to point you in the right direction.

    Here are a few I know of.

    -Ravenshoe has some fun stunts that were put in this year
    -Bayview Stoufville has a few stunts as well
    -Waterdown has lots of stunts to play on but there's significant climbing

    Anyone else care to add a few more stunt/drop/jump spots?

    Dagmar has now shut down its MTB program permanently(?) and Skyloft is land belonging to a private downhill ski club. They have held races at Skyloft in the past but the trails were only accessible for race and pre-ride.

    If you want a good down hill course then you'll have to go to Blue Mountain in Collingwood, unfortunately they are closed for the season.

    yeah BikeMech is right as far as downhill goes, Blue is pretty much the only game in town.

    They have a booth at the Spring bike show, usually early March, and you'll be able to get more info or pick up a discounted season's pass there.

    The place is definitely fun but not very technically challenging, then again it could get better next year.

    After I watched those Red Bull Rampage promos I guess it's technically possible to ride down certain cliffs of Scarborough Bluffs facing the park?
