You have to be in the mood for rocks no matter what. Just found this:September 1, 2015 at 9:22 am #806575

The Trailforks map is a must your first few times through the AF, I still pull my phone out from time to time and i have spent a lot of time in there this year.
As far as comparing the two, like others have said you really can’t. Kelso is fun if you wanna fly through groomed trails and hit the odd rock if you choose. Whereas HF/AF take some getting used to as the rocks are unavoidable, and the pace is considerably slower your first few rides. That being said, you can build speed and have a ton of fun there.
I am always drawn to the AF, unless conditions are wet/damp. Then the rocks get slick on the tech trails. Oh and i’ve only ridden a hardtail at both.July 29, 2016 at 2:53 pm #811616
Missed some of those posts. I actually like AF in the wet, since it’s actually ridable still because of the rocks! Wish it had more drops and stuff to hit, but we have kelso/waterdown for that at any rate when you want to ride fast and have some descents to play on. AF/HF is ‘technical’ by way of rocks being everywhere (and a few mild features, sure), kelso is technical (on certain trails) by way of features and available line choices. Waterdown is just awesome singletrack.August 13, 2016 at 9:04 pm #811809
you can ride both with a very short paved section to get the full Halton experience, and if you need more you can connect it with st Helenas which is the toughest of the the three
