Biking, Cycling and Downhilling
The Central Ontario North region has some of Ontario's best mountain biking. Hardwood Hills outside Barrie in the Simcoe region is considered by most enthusiasts to be the best trail system going. The center is dedicated to mountain biking (cross country skiing in the winter) and the variety, condition and design of the trials reflect this. Just a short distance from Hardwood is another of Ontario's finest, the Mansfield Outdoor Centre. The trail system is well designed and challenging with a lot of variety. Like Hardwood, many of Ontario's races are held at the centre. To the west an array of other challenges await you in the form of the Kolapore Uplands, the Loree Forest and the Three Stage area. To the east, in the Algonquin/Muskoka regions, head for the Bracebridge Resource Management Centre, Buckwallow Cycle Center, the Minnising Trail or our favorite Porcupine Ridge.
The last five to ten years has seen the ski hills make a real push in the area of MTB trail development. The world class resort at Blue Mountain is one example. Further afield in the bordering regions you'll find excellent biking at the Haliburton Center, and the Durham and Ganraska Forests, each of which offers a variety of other outdoor activities as well.
Blue Mountain - The resort has a number of trails coming off the mountain and many more nearby. The mountain has chairlift access (fee) for mountain bikers on summer weekends. Onsite you'll find repairs, rentals and a mountain bike school. You'll also find fine restaurants and accommodations in the village and in nearby Collingwood. Take the 400 north to Barrie and exit to highway 27, take the 26 east passed Collingwood about 11km to Blue Mountain Road and the resort. It's about 2hrs drive from Toronto.
