Access – Drive north 11km past Bolton on Highway 50 just beyond Albion Hills turn west on Patterson Side Rd. then north up Duffy’s Lane 2km, look for the parking lot down the road on the right just past the curve in the road.
The start and end of the trail is a bit odd. From the parking lot (#24 on the map) you can ride straight to #26 which is already into the ride. A better start point is to ride the road (did I say that?) to #5 sign post/map board. There you can start a more logical loop.
