    I just heard that MNR were ticketing motorcyclists entering the riding area off 2 Line W at Primrose. Don't have details of what the offence was, but this area seems to get well used and I'd assumed it was OK to ride there as the tracklogs are posted on the GPS page on this website.

    Does anyone here know the official status of this area?

    Hymm I dont know the status, but will admit I was there this past Sunday and I believe other than a guy i stopped to chat with, with his truck in there picking wild mushrooms I didnt see another soul around...

    Friends of mine were there on Saturday aswell as the last 3 saturdays and they didnt mention any problems. would be a shame as my first time there was Sunday and it seems like a great place.

    Doesnt the Bruce Trail go through that area? It is definitely a no-no to ride on the Bruce Trail.

    We were up there a few weeks ago and got some not so happy looks from some hikers. We decided to move on before they called the cops.

    The Bruce Trail goes through Boyne Valley Provincial Park which is on the EAST side of Prince of Wales Rd (the paved one that goes north from Hwy10/89 crossroads) and we don't ride there. 2nd Line W is just west of Prince of Wales and most of that area is OUTSIDE the Provincial Park boundary. Every time we've ridden there we've seen several other bikes. A few weeks back we rode south on 2nd Line and it was OK at 6pm on Saturday. At 10am the next day there were several barricades erected on the portion of the trail (legal road allowance) north of the river crossing. I don't think the local farmers like people riding there.

    BTW, it's not automatically a no-no to ride the Bruce Trail. There's many areas we ride around Orangeville and Creemore that are the Bruce Hiking Trail (white rectangles marking the route), but that's because they are using a public right of way. It's only when the Bruce Trail is on private land that you cannot ride it - not even on a bicycle.
