    Legal night riding around GTA

    The Puslinch thread got me thinking about night riding in Ontario, and since I'll be back in Canada soon, I'm wondering if there are any legal night riding opportunities around the GTA. I know there are a few places where people night ride, but I'm not 100% certain they're legal.

    PM me if you don't want to post for whatever reasons.

    Is there anything legal south of Barrie? Anybody know if Coulson's Hill is legal? Is the Hydrocut legal?

    Speaking for Hydrocut, I've done it many times, seen many others out there too. I've never heard of any rules against it, so I assume it's legal.

    Agreement forest - the north tract of Hilton Falls trail system is great for night riding - as long as you like a bit more technical trails - lots of rock...

    Durham Forest and Ganaraska Forest are good night riding spots but make sure you know where your are going in the Ganny it's easy to get turned around in the daylight there.

    There shouldn't be any problems night riding in Coulson Hill given that it is a Simcoe County forest. We have rode at night in there many times, lots of fun!

    I often wanted to attempt the Ganny but like you said bad enough in the daytime. It is better now the trails are marked for Paul's although a few markers are missing now. I would love to do more night riding just trying to find the people to go.

    Is Durham legal? I always thought it was not. I love Durham forest and if I can night ride there I'll be there every chance I can get. I know Glen Majors and Walker Woods is not legal

    I just got a new light for my B-day. Now I need to find some folks to night ride with. Centennial in King is a fun swoopy night right.

    Stay in the "Centre" (non-motorized vehicles) forest of the Ganny. The trails elsewhere are quite sandy BTDT. We've ridden twice in the Centre & other than the poison ivy, trails are good.
