    Humber Heritage Trail (answer today if you can)

    I'm riding to a friends house later this afternoon and will be using the Caledon trailway from Terra Cotta. When I hit Albion Hills, I need to head south for a bit, and then across 50. I came across this Humber Heritage Trail and it goes really close to his house. I found conflicting info on whether bikes are allowed (I'll be on a cx bike, and given how hot and dry it is, I won't be harming the trails). I would prefer trails to roads as it's around dinner time and would like to avoid cars on roads (who doesn't!).

    ^ The TRCA have been doing some trailwork since last year in patches along the HVHT (taking out wooden stairs and rerouting some sections etc. so the trails don't all connect right now) I'm not sure if you can reach your destination if you enter at Hwy 50 (across from the wellness centre). I've been able to run most of the trails (I was in there last fall) and we ride short sections but it's a crap shoot.

    Thank you for the quick response! Iím only riding to the homes around Columbia and 50, so Iíll ride what I can on the trail and use sideroads as needed.

    Are these trails not signed as No Bikes?

    I did read that when I came across the trail. I didn't end up riding it. It was more of a single track and my cx bike and the pack I had on the bike (not to mention my skills) didn't suit the trail. I was hoping it was more of a gravel / non technical trail.

    When I moved here to Bolton 15 years ago, they were No Bikes. I rode it and got some dirty looks. Too bad too because those are great trails, and the farther you go, it's obviously much less traveled. It would be great to put them to good use.
