    Good ride on Sunday, little bit of everything (over 4hrs). Was fun going through the bog, but once is enough for now. Thanks to Brandon for coming out and waiting for my slow ass on the singletrack.

    Ride heading out again this Sunday to Creemore. Need to bring lots of water, it's going to be hot and dusty.

    Ice Cream stop on the way home at a local dairy on the way back. Was really good, milk used from cows out back and local strawberries.

    That's the creemore area. You need a scorra trail pass to ride there. Though there are right of ways you can go on, just not the trails without a pass. Once you join they give you access to the maps.

    As an ODSC-OFTR member Jeff would not need to have a Scorra pass. What is needed is an OFTR sticker which he should have. Ottoride as an ODSC-ADV rider would not have an OFTR sticker so what he describes applies to him. Many ODSC members are also Scorra members.

    When I look at the general SCORRA map showing tracts available for riding, there is nothing specifically near the town of Midhurst. "Hendrie" is north of Hendrie Rd, between Nursery Rd and Wilson Drive. "Orrock Creek S" is possibly closer but I don't know if that is considered Midhurst. Trails that are used on specific rides (ie Midhurst ride) can be "one-time-only" based on arrangements with local land owners. It's best to stay out of an area unless you know for sure.

    When you join the OFTR next year consider joining ODSC + SCORRA + OFTR if you ride in the Barrie area. I'm sure a SCORRA member would be happy to show you around. https://www.scorra.ca/

    Thanks for clearing that up with the OFTR and access to trails. I'm headed up again on Sunday if anyone is interested. Have a route pretty much nailed down that is all sideroads. Will explore a tract just north east of creemore.

    If you are heading in to one of the Simcoe County Forest tracts up there, please be sure you have an OFTR membership. If caught without the membership, you may be charged.
    If you don’t have a membership you might want to stick to roads and road allowances.
    I’m happy to send you some past Creemore ride routes if you pm me.
