Mountain Biking Destination - Wildwood

A visit to Wildwood Conservation Area can mean big time fun! For the avid mountain biker or for those just looking for a fun route, Wildwood has you covered. The area has approximately 30 km of trails, including a 24 km loop route around Wildwood Reservoir. The loop is mostly single track trails with some double track on the north side of Lake Trail. If you're riding with younger kids, explore the Green and Red trails located close the trailhead. If you're an experienced rider and looking for more of a challenge, ride the entire Lake Trail loop and take both of the Black Diamond trail offshoots. Lake Trail is a directional loop meaning that on even-days it rides clockwise and on odd-days, counter-clockwise.
