    when we first rode in we passed another rider riding out by the parking lot.
    we said a clear and loud hello.
    no response.
    must have been a roadie on his 1st trail ride.

    Garmin data...

    Anybody has GPS data for Garmin about a decent loop up there?

    We are planning to ride there tomorrow just for the second time and I couldn't find any decent map to navigate the place...

    I found the course of the half marathon but half of those trails are on private land if I know well so I don't want get into trouble....

    Thx,

    were you wearing a red or orange jacket?
    If so may have seen you about a km in from the parking spot through the bush about 100 metres away.
    nice meeting you.
    good thing we got the ride in yesterday.

    ^^well I was in all black, but my camelbak was red. maybe me, i was about a km in.

    know anything about the other side of the road? i guess that would be the west side of airport rd. there's a bunch of trail building that happened there once, everything still seems solid, but there's so many trees across the trails it's not anything too recent.

    I road the west side a couple of years ago but there wasn't much there. I did meet a hunter though. Said "HI' and went to ride on the east side!

    Rode there last weekend and it was good - someone is building NEW TRAILS !!!

    log overs, roller coaster.....its new and soft but we all rode it - very cool. Maybe Dufferin can get some of the attenttion that Copeland has been getting over the last couple of years.

    NICE....and thanks whom ever is spending the time to build - I promise to ride it and pack it down ;-)
