For people who like light freeriding and aggressive XC, the Bruce Peninsula Mountain Biking Adventure Park is paradise!
The trails: The land is fairly flat, so most of the challenge comes from the technical terrain. There are several loops ranging from 1-3km each, so there is easily more than a dozen km altogether. But because of the technical difficulty, you will probably find that you won't be able to cover all the trails in a single session.
Technical difficulty: The trails are very technical, with many rocks and roots, and as a result it is a very slow but challenging ride. At not point can you expect to ride over 20kmh, I averaged well under 10kmh. I noticed several novices who were forced to walk sections because of the technical difficulty of the trail, so it is not really suitable for pure beginners. But experienced riders will just love the technical challenge and difficult terrain, especially the "expert" trails. Riding this trail with a rigid would be immensely difficult, so having a good front suspension would be an absolute minumum. This is one trail where you'd be well served with a dual suspension bike, although it's certainly rideable with a good hardtail.
The stunts: This is the best part! Alongside the trails, throughout the park, are well placed and superbly designed northshore-styled light freeriding stunts. Most of these are rated according to difficulty, and given appropriate names like "Mount Everest", "Teeter Totter of Shame", "Don't Try This at Home", "The Serpent", and "Cannonball Run." Several of these are in the parking lot, including teeter-totters ("Peewee" and "Free Fall"), a northshore ride ("Junkyard Dog"), some jumps ("Bush Pig" and "Ride the Sign"), a rock garden, and a skinny ("Mr Completely"). These features are easily the highlights of the trail, and there are probably at least 20 of them scattered throughout the park. They are optional and placed slightly off the main trail, so less experienced riders can just stick to the main trail and avoid them. This makes it possible to a group ride with riders of different abilities. Some are fairly easy (even my 8 year old could do "Boardwalk"), but others are insane. Each stunt has a "filter", ie harder stunts are deliberately difficult to access, so if you can't get onto it, it's too hard for you!
Travel north of Wiarton on Hwy 6 and turn right on County Rd. 9 follow for 8 kilometres and there is a sign for the park showing you to turn right.
