*Please note that The Pines in Woodstock is currently experiencing a high volume of cyclists using the trail network. We recommend considering a different trail for now.

Home of the Woodstock Cycling Club, The Pines is usable all year round (for fat biking in the winter). Lush forest and a range of trail levels make it a sure bet for cyclists. Located on the east side of Woodstock, The Pines has approximately 14 km of trails suitable for all skill sets ranging from a 1 km kid-friendly loop and pump track to the more difficult (and aptly named) black diamond trails like Bloody Lung. Enjoy the pine treed forest that offers up a unique ride experience, while getting your heart rate up on this fun and well-signed trail network.
