Trail Details: 
A great selection of fast, flowy and technical single and double track trails.  Its a bit of a maze with little signage, so best to have a guide or join a group ride if you want to find the best trails first time.  But it a small well traveled area bounded by roads on 3 sides, so don't be afraid to explore on your own. Someone will be able to point you back to the lot.

Go north on Brock Road to Durham Road 21 (aka Goodwood Rd) at Coppin's Corners. Head east on Durham Road 21 for 5 km to Concession 7. Go south for 1 km;  the trailhead parking is on the (east).

Durham Forest & EDH ground now frozen solid. Rain yesterday followed by 2-3 cm snow. Many icy patches now masked by snow cover - studs required or be prepared for multiple hard landings.  Currently -10c and snowing lightly. Not yet enough... more

The trails in Durham Forest have refrozen so it is ok to ride them again.

Be aware though that there are quite a few sections of trail that are icy.

Conditions were great today.  Lots of snow in the forest. Snow is super grippy so traction is awesome.

Lots of trails to choose from.  Burnt Toast, Bowes, Bowes Too, Big Butter, Baby Butter, the Maze, Logs Over Easy, Ogre and Out, Stone... more

The east end of Big Butter (From the start at Bowes Too) was extremely muddy today. Muddy enough that I'd suggest it needs some more work or it will continue to be a problem.
