    Puslinch conditions

    50 wet, 30 %mud, 20%ice

    single speed 29er, walked about 2-5% either deeper mud or dirty ice

    doable, but some trail environmentalists might get upset

    Puslinch was good Rollin today, no complaints. A little mud, but not enough to have to wash the bike afterwards.

    Curious if anyone has an update on Puslinch conditions. We had quite a bit of rain on Monday... not sure if they would be in good shape for a ride this evening?

    Is all good to go up there, some friends were out last night with favourable reviews. The NW corner from the main lot to the second pond is still messy, and likely will be that way until May, but everything else has firmed up well.

    Go Give'er Hell!

    Yeah, it's confirmed the Puslinch trails are in great shape. Had a nice rip tonight, no mud or mess in any of the pines, hardwoods or connectors.

    Feels good to go fast again!

    Looks like Puslinch is the next destination for me. Only been once before.

    If anyone would like to share a favoured route with me that would be much appreciated.

    If you have the map printed that's available in one of the threads here, or google it, that's helpful if the trails are unfamiliar.

    I like starting left of the parking lot and heading East, like your riding beside the 401. Trails are easy here, so a good warm up. The trails are marked with painted arrows/blazes. Once you reach the most eastern section of the trails you can start on the hardwoods, which are more technical.

    Yeah, pick a trail and ride it thru. Get lost, then get found. I've been riding there for 5 years now and I still get lost, it's a bowl of spaghetti in there....

    See that's the thing - Due to it's location Puslinch isn't very convenient for me, so it's sort of on the list of destinations I go to when not much else is open. To this date I've only been once. I will go for my second time in the next day or so, and likely that will be it until next spring.

    Generally if a location is somewhere I know I'll be riding lots I do just that - go out get lost and over time learn the network.

    However at a place I know I won't be back to very often I ask for peoples favourite routes.

    Hope it makes sense, just wanted to explain a bit how my head works lol.

    I've ridden Puslinch for 5-6 years and still don't understand the 'proper' route, always get lost after the pines / before hitting the big hill in the east end

    Navigation has gotten much better in the last couple years.

    There are paint marks on the trees. The most obvious loops are the green, red and yellow loops. I have the same loop I do every time I ride there which includes these. Makes for about a 10k loop. The trails are also designed to be directional..although I can't blame anyone for not realizing this.

    Apparently there's an 18km loop that is fully marked that hits every trail. I have yet to ride it though..i've tried.. but these marks certainly aren't obvious. Ill take another look this evening.
    Some great sets for the trainer:

    I was there today trails are nice and dry, first time in a few years, yea I wouldn't say the arrows are obvious but they do help with finding your way around. I deffinetly did do some of the more technical trails backwards. This time I ventured into some of the more technical stuff there were some short steep punchy climbs I just lost traction on, any one got any pointers for these ones.

    ^^^ Go the other way, those trails in the hardwoods can be no fun if ridden the wrong direction...

    Reviving last year's thread with the perennial question: Does anyone know what the trail conditions at Puslinch are currently like?
    I love riding my bike!
