Puslinch Conservation Area has rolling terrain, some sweet, twisty trail through pine and hardwood forest.

Much of the trail is cut for the MTB rider.

Lots of quick ups and downs, and one large hill (if you want to climb it), plus a few sand and gravel patches.

Though there are no signs, if you start your ride in on the north side by the hwy and work your way east to the back, then south and back you can’t get lost. This also starts off easy.

As you cross the north side of the pond you will enter a stand of planed pines with some nice twisty sections.

From there a more hilly, gravelly area opens up with hardwood and open sections to criss-cross through.

Work your way clockwise through this section to the south side and back.

Not much is marked in here, but one of my favourite loops in Ontario is on the south side.

It flows and really rocks…if you can find it. It is an oval loop that starts and end at the same spot off the main double track.

Watch for hikers and dog doo too close to the trailhead.
