When most people think about mountain biking in south western Ontario, they generally don’t think about The Pines. The Pines is a great trail system located on the east side of Woodstock Ontario. There is something there to test everyone’s ability. Whether you are an expert or a grom, everyone will have the same amount of excitement once they hop on the trails.
Each trail at The Pines is clearly marked by a visible sign just before entering a new section of trail. All the trails are specifically named to help keep the confusion to a minimum. Eg. Skidoo23. Getting lost shouldn’t be an issue either; all the trails are linked up together and run in a complete loop if you follow the directions of the trails. The difficulty of the trails will be marked with a colour code. Black is the advanced trails. Red is the intermediate trails and green is the easiest trails. When all trails are combined the full trail length is 20km.
Parking at the pines is very good. With a large size lot right at the start and finish of the trails it makes it very convenient for riders going on for more than one lap. Getting to The Pines is quite easy as well, with it being just off the 401 it is located at 745749 township road 4 Woodstock.
Hint the name, The Pines are in a pine treed forest and allows for a great atmosphere. The soil allows for riding in all conditions as well. Trails vary from flowy berm trails to rough trails with gnarly root sections and everything in between, this makes for trails that never get boring. If berms or gnarly root sections aren’t your thing there are plenty of trails that have flat corners with a smooth surface. Therefore it is a win win for everyone.
To make the most out of your experience at The Pines, it is best to ride with someone who is familiar with the trails. Sure it is easy to make your way through the trails and have a great time, but when riding with someone who understands the trails, you will be riding the best lines and having the most fun in the shortest period of time.
We definitely have to give a big thanks to all the trail builders at The Pines for putting a lot of hard work and effort into creating the trails and keeping them neat and tidy. Thanks guys!
