    Heading up to Tobermory this weekend. I'm pretty sure there are ATV/snowmobile trails in the area. Just planning on doing some MTBing.

    Can anyone post or PM me with some insight/location on some trails local to this area?

    Thanx

    Re: Tobermory area bicycle trails

    It's not quite up that far, but if you haven't already ridden it, Brant Tract is some really nice (and well signed) riding:

    It's just south of Paisley, so you could hit it on the way up or back down. ...riding the widow maker section will make the stop worth while!

    The brant tract will be a bit out of my way, but the Lindsay tract(from the site link) might work.
    Thanks

    Also, I think I may have found some possible trails right local to Tobermory. I'll check them out and see if they're useable. Be cool if I could pedal right from the cottage.........

    You might want to take the DRZ with you. There are trails but it takes some work finding them. Last time Mel and I were up there I noticed a lot more no tresspassing signs than years before.

    The lindsay track looks good only did part of it due to downpour and the trail at wiarton is quite rocky and good if you like stunts but all of the stunts are on optional routs.
    PS the bakery by the lindsay trck is quite good ist about 2k befor the trail parking lot.

    True, but sometimes when I go MTBing the 'scenery' is much better :wink: . Also, I need more cardio....

    Hey grew up in Toby not off road bike friendly all the crown land is owned by Parks Canada and the natives don't like outsiders riding on the trails . Stay south of Dyers bay road anything north of that beware. You will go in and they will block your way out. That said good luck.MTbing is native friendly I think try Cypress Lake is nice Halfway rock lots to see on foot.
