    Is that in the Ganaraska Forest or another part of the trail? It's confusing as there is a trail that runs from the Port Hope/Cobourg area towards Midland w/ the same name.

    Can you be more specific? I grew up in Midland and don't remember that area at all? WHere is a good trail head?
    MTBR is serious stuff.
    You never get better until you get out of your comfort zone.

    Actually, calling this a hiking trail is a bit misleading...the part that heads towards Creemore and Glen Huron is on the roads...a great road ride up to Duntroon and Collingwood, about a 80km round trip

    the forest section is a maize of unmarked and unmapped trails...no real traihead, i'm fortunate as part of it is at the end of my street and i can use a combination of trails to make an interesting ride...I wouldn't recommend going in alone for the first time as getting lost is not a problem, but it is easy to get turned around. ...most of the trails are close to the Nottawasaga River

    Up for a guided tour?

    Oh, NOT the 80km round trip one though. That Section 23 part would probably be enough to tire me out. (pun not intended)
    I ..... need ..... DIRT!!!!!

    ... and cookies. :D

    The Ganaraska Hiking Trail's trailhead is in Port Hope... The other one is in Wasaga

    There are parking areas that exist, they're known by a lot of the hike leaders. for example, I know for about three in the southern end of the trail.

    If you let me know what sections you're looking for I'll take a scan from my guide book.

    For the most part, this is an A to B trail, but it covers a large amount of non-road area, which is always impressive. The Oak Ridges Trail is also a great trail. This runs from Ganaraska Forest, West to King City and past.

    If you're riding in Durham, Walker, or Glen Major and see white rectangle blazes on the trees that's the ORTA that you're on.

    If you're into backpacking, the Wilderness Section of the Ganaraska is amazing. I've done it end to end a few times, and it's one of the only places you can do 66km of backpacking without crossing any roads or seeing anyone.

    that bike looks a bit overkill for those trails. is that the main pathway that leads to something a little more exciting?
