Dufferin was great last night. Even dusty in one or two spots. Only one spot had mud (besides crossing some of the double track).
I like the leaves on the trail, but I’m weird… Either way, a lot of the trails were in the process of being leaf blown yesterday in preparation for the sausage fest race on Saturday.
Nice, looks good. Have not been to Turkey Point yet, might have to check it out maybe next weekend.
I could see some runners and one or two people riding in the Don from the DVP yesterday. Not sure of conditions in there…
Was hoping that Dufferin might melt fast and drain, which is usually has a tendency to do pretty quick. But some buddies…[Read more]
Wow, that’s a lot less ice than what I was picturing in Dufferin. I am guessing those are from around the central to ridge area? I assume Kens Trail is still a little more covered…
Heck if the warm weather keeps up and with a little rain, maybe we can ride regular bikes in there next weekend. Majority of Dufferin is sandy soil, so mud isn’t…[Read more]
Can we end this thread for the season yet? 😀
Rode some Simcoe trails last night. Was getting soft, but ride able mostly. Uphills after today will be impossible, I assume.
But yeah, lots of snow in there to melt….Pics from last night.
One can only hope!
Rode some of Jefferson last night, as well as the Oak Ridges Trail over to Bond lake. Pretty good conditions right now. Not a ton of snow in there, so the hikers have packed down the gravel paths pretty well (without the usually post holing). Some of the single track is rideable too.
Did you get to go into Dufferin at all?
We rode Copeland last night and it was pretty good. No ice and lots of fresh powder. The “pay” trails from Horseshoe are pretty well packed down; both the snowshoe and fat bike trails.
Should be a few good days of riding coming up, if the conditions hold up and the temperature doesn’t rise too much.
Yeah Durham is well packed. Lots and lots of traffic in there. And for some reason, the trails I’ve ridden on haven’t been potholed by hikers, unlike some other spots..
Had plans to ride on the weekend, but things got in the way. The rain didn’t help either. 🙁
The Creeks is solid up there right now. Would be a much better loop if we got some more snowshoe traffic down in the lower section. That big rock is now a giant chunk of ice; ask me how I know. 😀
Lots of grooming over towards Sugarbush too; but damn is it tough over there. While its been groomed to be about two feet wide, the solid part is only…[Read more]
Tons of snow up north now…
Someone was grooming the Simcoe Creeks trail last night with a skidoo. Still too much soft snow to ride it.
Copeland is filled to the brim with snow. Couldn’t bike in there either last night, had to snowshoe.
Hopefully the rain holds off…..FOR ONCE!!!!
Dufferin was pretty good yesterday. You could see the ice poking through where the tire lugs dug in, but there was enough grip to not be sketched out. Trails are nicely packed down; main trail from the main parking spot is the well worn path with the slicker spots. The ridge trail and single track back to the “upper” parking spot near the field is…[Read more]
The riding in Pisgah is awesome. I can’t comment on how wet it’ll be in March, but the temperatures should be great.
A group of us went last Christmas and the Christmas before. Trying to go for a few days in May before DirtFest in Pennsylvania.
Few pictures to help convince you…
There is everything down there. Flowy trail, rocks,…[Read more]
Looks like you had a good ride @FastTimes.
We rode in there last night on the creeks trail and besides it being absolutely bone crushing cold, the conditions were perfect. They got a little bit more snow, so the trail is narrow and grippy. Only one tiny foot long patch of ice was to be found.
And its always fun setting first tracks in the powder…[Read more]
I hope it snows, because you’re right, the closer you get to that kiosk towards the 8th line section, the worse the post holing from hikers gets. Its brutal in a few spots.
In other news, Copeland is completely covered in ice in some spots. We went in on Wednesday and it took two hours to go 13km. Some of the double track has minimal snow cover…[Read more]
I don’t know if many people read this, but I think sadly access to the swan lake portion of Jefferson Forest has been completely cutoff.
If you don’t know the history here, the Swan Lake property is managed by the TRCA and because they host school groups on the property, the area is marked as private property. They only started to post private…[Read more]
Rode Simcoe trails again today. If you have studs, now is the time to ride. We did 20km without even trying. I bet with the solid packed trails (some savage bumpy from hikers), you can probably do a 35-40km singletrack loop.
Not sure if the logging is done there yet, but the kids loops and other local to the main parking lot are all well packed.…[Read more]
