    Kolapore if wet

    Hey guys,

    Can anybody tell me what the trails at kolapore are like if it has been wet. Some of us are planning on riding there Monday of thanksgiving but i see it is supposed to rain a few days the week before. Would a few dry days get the trails back in shape to ride?

    that trail is fully ridable when wet. lots of rocks and root so bring your "A" game (wet or dry).
    Just be extra careful on some of the wood bridge crossings. they can catch you out if you approach at the wrong angle.

    I'd avoid the Northwest Passage when wet.

    Avoid the whole thing except the stuff from Metcalfe Rock east, but frankly I'd avoid all of it. There are better places to ride in the rain. (Hepworth, Allan Park, just gravel roading, some of Blue Mountain).

    Looking more for a place you could ride single track for a few hours without repeating much and trying to keep it around an hour drive from home. Kinda limits things. As long as it isnt crazy wet, we will probably give it a go. Thanks for responses

    Duffern forest is a great place to go when it is wet out. It is very sandy so it drains fast. It is just north of Mansfield, about 40 minutes from Collingwood.

    I avoid Kolapore altogether if it's wet.

    Rocky/Rooty/Mossy mixed with water and mud is a bad combo.
