    Red Hill Valley Parkway trails info needed

    I believe there was a thread here or I followed a lead to bike shop that rode it regularily .
    THeir ride was actual single track not Chip n Dust crap .

    They had a satelite map too .
    Can anyone steer me to this .

    I suck at searches

    Check out Hammertownmtb.com (you get this long funny link name when you attach the link)Hamilton and Burlington Ontario's first mountain bike specific on line community., there are maps of rides posted on the "blog" part of the site.

    This one has a large part of the good stuff...tuesday night ride, no flats! by pwmueller at Garmin Connect - Details

    Where you planning on starting out?

    Let me know if you have specific areas you'd like to focus on, you can get about 3 hours of riding in without riding the same stuff.

    you just need to get to limeridge and mountain brow. wherever you start from is going to change depending on where you live. the start from the gps is a subdivision.

    Ccaddy, this map https://hammertownmtb.com/wordpress/...desept0910.jpg shows more of the trails. An easy to find trailhead is on the west side of the Red Hill Parkway @ the Greenhill Rd. exit. There is a small parking lot, you head south on the multi use trail to the bottom of the hill and the end of the paving stone surface. To the left is a trail that goes up a washout and becomes the Fence Line trail, it's the trail right along the highway, goes south and into the pines. Keep going, you get to a junction, stay left and go under the Red Hill to former Mt Albion road - go left for a little technical loop along the creek, come back out,then ride up the road to the top of the escarpment and then left onto the Bruce trail, past Felker's Falls to some very nice single track that loops back around. (lower right of the map above)

    Lukey's map link on the Hamilton Area Trails Maps thread gives a good Google Earth view of most of the trails, but he doesn't have the Fence Line trail on his example (clidk on Hamilton-master-map - Google Maps ) ( Easier to see the trails if you have it on Map instead of Satallite)

    (Lukey's map shows an excursion through Glendale golf course on the technical loop off of Mt. Albion Road. - the actual trail comes back onto Albion road south of the golf course, no need for trespassing - don't know if Lukey's GPS was off a bit or if he was riding in the snow that day)

    Finally got to this after finishing an earlier ride in the area .
    Parked at the Greenhill exit and rode down the multi use trail .
    Went to the right ,,,,,ended up at a parking lot/ball diamond .
    Backtracked and then pass Greenhill .
    The day was winding down and I wasn't finding anything so I pulled the plug .
    I should have brought more detail maps/instructions with me .
    My fault for thinking it would just jump out at me .

    Keep in mind , this is Map My Ride and their GPS mapping isnt the most accurate

    I know I'm coming late to this but if you check out the Facebook page of Hammer City Cycle, we ride in there pretty frequently with our Wednesday night group ride, you'll find a garmin map of a ride done in the Red Hill fairly recently. If you'd like you can stop by the shop and I'll draw you a map. Cheers, Jason
