    Where to MTB near Toronto

    Hi - I will be staying in Toronto for 4 days for a workshop in May and can bring my MTB along. I was wondering what would be the best trails to hit in the area (let's say within an hour or so). And, what is the biking like in May? Are most trails open and dry, or are they iffy that time of year from the winter thaw? Thanks for any info!

    You should be fine to ride in May, though we have a lot of snow right now. Theres quite a few trails within an hour drive.

    In Toronto itself you have some trails on the Don Valley (not great, but if no car access it's something). About an hour north is the Durham forest trail system which can also link with Dagmar and Glen major trails. 30 mins west of toronto are Kelso trails . Lots of others too, as I'm sure people will post below.

    If you give enough advanced notice maybe someone will even be your guide

    I second Kelso and Durham Forest for good destinations specially if riding alone. Both are easy to navigate and are on Trailforks. Both have a decent amount of traffic should you have any kind of issue or loose your way. Post up when you know and maybe someone can show you around. I'm at Kelso or Hilton Falls once a week. If you like technical rocky terrain, this place is a must. Would not recommend riding it alone though.

    There are some very interesting sections of the bruce trail that are fun to ride. On the site advertising, I see Albion Hills every time I login here. It too looks like there could be some fun rides in that area.

    If you are into a bigger ride, both Halton Regional Forest and Kelso Conservation Area make a really good time when put together. And both are on Project MTB. I liked Halton more than Kelso and Bent Rim at Halton is a great time if you enjoy tech.

    May should be fine so long as it has been dry for a couple of days before. When I was there in June 3 last year, it was completely dry.

    Cool to see an out of towner destroy these two areas like that.

    Well done.
