  • Bonnevile Lakes Loop

    Start at the Fish lake parking lot and head up the lake.  Alternatively, you could head down the creek towards Jackson lake and do it the other way.  Starting up the lake means you have a push up to Bonneville, but you get a super fun long downhill ride.  If you do it “backwards”, you have a long, mellow climb ending with a short, steep plunge down to the lake. Pick yer poison.
  • Birds Hill Provincial Park Oak Ride Mountain Bike Trail

    7 km loop. Dedicated mountain bike trail in the South West section of Birds Hill Provincial Park. Single track. Very minor elevation changes. Many sections are built on deer trails and have extremely tight corners and very narrow passings between trees. Other sections open up a bit and have super sweet S bends with great flow. Some corners have low berms with more berms added each year. This is the most frequented XC race course on the competition calendar with short XC races held every 2 – 3 week during early and mid summer. The trails dry quickly but many of the lower sections are not rain friendly and are easily rutted when wet. When foliage is grown in during summer months it’s difficult to see ahead so be careful about approaching other riders coming in the opposite direction. In winter, the trail is packed for excellent fat biking.translate

  • Torrance Barrens

    In 1999, Torrance Barrens Conservation Area was designated as the world’s first permanent Dark Sky Reserve. The 4,700-acres of Crown land is bedrock and wetlands, with trees and bushes that are stunted in height. For star-gazers this means a spectacular 360 degree view of the night sky, unhampered by light pollution. Even an amateur’s telescope can see the rings of Saturn. Late in the summer and in the early fall it’s posssible the northern lights (aurora borealis) could put in an appearance. The Barren’s also doubles as an exceptional hiking and mountain biking destination, with 3 well marked trails for public use. Encompassing 1,990 hectares (5,000 acres), the Torrance Barrens Conservation Reserve is one of the most striking geological areas in Muskoka. The lunar landscape of the Torrance Barrens is characterized by low ridges of Precambrian bedrock, separated by wetland and peat-filled hollows.  The barren landscape contains scattered boulders and little soil.  The prevalence of bare bedrock is a direct result of wave washing of glacial lakes Algonquin and Nipissing.  The nationally rare Eastern Bluebird, and Cooper’s Hawk can be spotted from the Barrens, along with diverse vegetative species.  Ontario’s only lizard, the five-lined skink can also be spotted here.
  • Walden Mountain Bike Trails

    The Walden Mountain Bike Club was formed in the fall of 2008. We are an incorporated, not for profit club that is run by a volunteer Board of Directors. We are affiliated with the International Mountain Bike Association. We currently have approximately over 420 members.

    Our home venue is at the Walden Trails. We maintain the single track trail system, and help Walden Cross Country with their ski trails. Thousands of volunteer hours have gone into creating a trail system that has something for everyone. Mountain bike riding now has a home in our city.

    In 2009 the Walden Mountain Bike Club was asked to host the Sudbury Fitness Challenge Mountain Bike Tour MTB race, and hosted a very successful event, with races for all ages and abilities. 82 racers provided us with an exciting day of racing.  This has now become a popular event with the local and regional cycling community. The SFC MTB Tour made its return in 2015 after a two year break to allow for the Canada Cup events.

    The “Wolfpak Racing” Team was formed in 2010 and has competed at Provincial and National Series events. The team members also participate in Enduro and Epic racing events in Canada and the USA. Since the Wolfpak formed, there has been a team member on the podium at every Ontario and Canada Cup event we have participated up to the end of the 2013 racing season. We are hoping this streak will continue. Wolfpak Racing and WMBC is now highly respected in the mountain biking world as a fun loving and  “ambassadors for the sport” . The race team is competitive, but bring a huge fun and friendly atmosphere to any event we attend. We are very proud of this. The Wolfpak team has now evolved into a factory sponsored team with sponsorship from several companies.

    The Walden Mountain Bike Club has hosted several provincial and national series racing events at our home venue in Naughton. In 2011, WMBC hosted the Ontario Summer Games MTB event. In 2012 we hosted the Plastiglas Ontario Cup Series event and the Canada Cup XCO Series races in 2013. These events were a resounding success and received national media coverage and high praise from the sport governing bodies and the racing community. The club is set to host the Canada Cup again July 11-13 2014 in Naughton and will boast a world class field including World Champion Catherine Pendral, our national team and many of the major trade teams.

    The recreational side of the club is also active and we now have weekly group rides at venues around the Sudbury area. The focus on the riding groups is to have fun, make friends and to learn how to be a better rider. The group allows riders to enjoy a low key and casual environment with a variety of skill levels.

    In 2015, the Club started to host the Take a Kid Mountain Biking Day and the Global Fat Bike Day group ride.

    In 2016, the Club began to host monthly Social Group Rides in the summer.

    In January 2016, the Club worked with Walden Cross Country to allow occasional fat bike riding on the skate trails.

    In 2017, the Club began to host a summer evening race series – The Bush Pig Open.

    In December 2018, the Club worked made a agreement with WCC and began to groom snowshoe trails for winter Fat Bike riding at the Walden Trails.

    In the Spring of 2019, the City Park, known as the Naughton Trail Center, was renamed The Walden Trails.

    For the winter of 2019-2020, the WMBC and the ski club, Walden Cross Country, entered into an agreement to offer winter fat biking at the Walden Trails, with WCC selling Fat Bike memberships, selling day passes for Fat Biking and renting Fat Bikes to trail users.

    In 2020, the COVID-19 Pandemic brought more users & Club Members to the trails, along with more volunteers to add riding features and develop new trail segments. During the summer, a Canada Summer Jobs grant was used to hire two summer students to complete the day-to-day trail maintenance task.
