CMHA's Dirty Enduro EPIC Mountain Bike Trail
The CMHA's Dirty Enduro EPIC Mountain Bike Trail, designated by the International Mountain Bike Association, is a unique 60 km route that winds its way through some of the most beautiful woodlands of the majestic Ganaraska Forest. Retaining its prestigious designation as one of only three EPIC trails in Canada, the course is primarily single track trails that are physically and technically challenging while winding through a natural environment.
The West Forest and East Forest areas permit motorized use, snowmobiling and hunting in certain areas. Check with Forest Centre staff to determine where you can participate in your favourite activity.
