    Dufferin Forest trail map?

    Thinking about riding Dufferin Forest on Sunday - any suggestions, hints etc - am I likely to get turned around in the forest without a map?
    Looked around for a map but have been unable to find one

    Have a good long weekend everyone

    Cheers

    You can download a map from maprika. It is an intreractive map. It will track you on it. I have it on my phone. I found the place easy to navigate without it.

    Sorry it is Durham, and not dufferin. It happens after a certain age.

    Sorry I just saw this now. We ride Dufferin Forest most weeks at some time during the week. All the maps out there are very general and we have had some logging in there lately which changes things. If you ever want to get out for a tour one of us at Team van go would be happy to give you a guided tour. There are approx. 25km of single track out there. Keep an eye on our website Teamvango.ca for times we are out there. The "Contact Us" tab is the best way to reach us directly. Hope to see you out there sometime! Johnny

    Even with a map Dufferin is easy to get lost. None of the trails are marked and they cross numerous fire roads and double track. There is very little to reference to on a map.
    That being said, the lollipop loop is very well worn in and not to hard to follow especially if you are using a mapping app. At least that way you can just follow your track backwards.
