    Where to ride in Markham Ontario?

    Hi all, Im from Michigan and looking to make a trip to Markham Ontario this weekend. Last fall I stayed in Markham and rode the trails in Durham Forrest, they were a blast! Ever since then I have been talking to y buddy about how much I loved those trails and I wanted to take him there and ride.

    I was wondering if there were any other awesome trails nearby to ride? I spoke to somebody when I was there in the fall and they recommended Durham Forest, and another trail that I thought was right in Markham, or close by anywaus.

    Any info would be awesome Thanks!

    Also any suggestions on Where to stay would be appreciated. We stayed at the Park Inn, in Markham but cheaper is a big plus! Any campgrounds near by?

    No idea on campgrounds in Markham.

    A few minutes north of Markham you will find the Jefferson Trails, at Bayview and Stouffville. They're at the northeast corner of the intersection of those two roads and the trails are great. Any of them with a sign on the trees where the trail cuts in off the main trunk are well worth riding. Check Strava or Trailforks if you need some more GPS intel.

    No mega large elevation gain in Jefferson, but ALL of the trails are either going up or down, so it's lots of punchy but short climbs, followed by fun descents.

    If you are in the Markham area, Durham Forest, Walkers Woods is not that far from you.

    Definatley durham forest. If you're there on a wedensday you could join the Durham Mountain Biking Association on a group ride. They leave the main parking lot at 6:30. I will most likely be there.

    We're basically going up there to ride Durham Forrest again, but I wanted road ride another trail or two while up there. We will unfortunately be up there Probably Friday night into Saturday. Otherwise I would love to meet up with you guys and ride!
