No riding today :(

December 28th, 2020 by in Everything

Trails are way too soft today, even the adventure trail. We are back our grooming again right now so please don’t head out as it will be a mess. Cold temps tonight…trails will be amazing tomorrow!

Thanks!

Trail Update

December 27th, 2020 by in Everything

Trails have been groomed by the groomer crew yesterday. 5 1/2 hour 2 person tag team effort.

During lock down we need to observe the Provincial regulations. Stay close to home (ride trails close to where you live), social distance, park spaced apart and please don’t congregate in the parking lot.

The “south parking” area (field area, take the roadway to the south as soon as you turn off Airport Rd) is still accessible and it would be a good idea to park there instead of the Main parking lot if possible to spread things out.

Enjoy the peacefulness of the Forest.

Trail Conditions

Lots of awesome snow! No grooming yet, just some snowshoeing.

Dec 19th trail and weather update

December 19th, 2020 by in Everything

Well yesterday they said it was going to rain Sunday. It’s snowing right now and the rain is no longer forecasted so trails should still be great tomorrow. It’s forecasted to be plus three but things are pretty hard packed so hopefully the trails should stand up. As always,  just use good judgement based on the track you leave behind.

Sat 11am

Looking at the weekend weather K&I are heading out at 11am on Saturday. Sunday is warm and wet so we want to avoid that as it’s likely going to just ice up the trails.

If anyone wants a ride posted at a different time/date let me know and I’ll pop it up for you.

I was out for a run today and the trails looked awesome!!!

 

Dec 14th trail update

December 14th, 2020 by in Everything

We got out for a night ride tonight. A couple of cm’s of fresh powder snow on top of the hard packed base. It was awesome. We rode all 18km’s of the groomed single track plus 10 km of “bonus” groomed trails. Conditions should keep getting better all week. And just when you thought you had first tracks….

DCF trails update

December 13th, 2020 by in Everything

I got out for a look today and the trails are surprisingly in really good shape. Still lots of snow in the Forest and the trails are a combination of dirt, hard packed snow and ice. All ridable. Looking ahead at the forecast we should be set and in good shape. So pop out for a ride…

Trail update

I got out today to check things out. Still lots of snow in the Forest but the trails are getting down to ice and soft snow. There is a mix of snow and rain on the way so it should be interesting.

So no biking this weekend (maybe Sunday aft if things get colder than expected, but likely still on other trail not the groomed single track).

I actually got a 15km ride in on other trails completely avoiding the groomed single track.

I met some folks out today making some respectable choices of where to ride. So nice to see. Then there was this one…

Carved up the entire Max Extension. Great…so I had to go and get the groomer and flatten out the ruts so they would not freeze in like that. What a mess one bike can make. Ugh.

I also then groomed another 10-15km’s of other trails that can be used for Hiking, Dog walking, XC Skiing and Fat Biking. They should harden up quite nicely when then temps drop.

The trails should be awesome next week as there is a bit of fresh snow and colder temps coming up!

 

Trail Update

We got out last night to DCF to have look at the trails. The trails actually didn’t look that bad..but they were soft. We quickly avoided all the groomed single track. So we headed off on an “adventure ride”. The awesome thing about DCF is that there are still km’s & km’s of other trails, fire roads to explore. The “other stuff” was awesome. Due to a combo of other sections the groomer had been on as an experiment, rogue ATV’s, trucks & snowmobiles we found plenty to have fun on. We ended up way back in Simcoe. Still lots of snow in the Forest so feel free to head up this weekend and explore. Ken’s Trail may even be ridable which is ok as we do not groom that one. If everyone (including FBers) avoids the groomed trails we will be in awesome shape for next week. Thanks & have fun!
