Scenic Wheeling
Bruce County’s country roads lend themselves naturally and beautifully to cycle touring. They’re quiet, well surfaced, and jam-packed with diversity. You can cycle from sandy beaches in the west to rocky cliffs in the east. Roads climb up and over the Niagara Escarpment and run along some of Canada’s most stunning shoreline. There are plenty of ups and downs and twists and turns, along with tantalizing destinations. You can link lighthouses, visit rural gardens, string together a succession of beaches, head to Harley’s Pub and Perk in Mildmay for butter tarts, or ride to Big Bay General Store for ice cream. That’s the great pleasure about road cycling in the Bruce – you can spin it any which way you want.

Lindsay Tract Trails

Lindsay Tract
4025 Hwy 6 
Miller Lake N0H 1Z0

Trail Information

The Lindsay Tract is the largest of the County Forests consisting of more than 8000 acres.  This diverse property has amazing trail potential but also contains sensitive habitat for the Black Bear and Eastern Massasauga Rattle Snake.   Development began in May 2008 and we will continue over the next five years to build new single track trail and open old logging trails for multi-use users including horseback riding.

SEASON TO RIDE:

This property has great drainage, but beware of slick rocks and roots after a rainy day. Optimum time of year is May through October.

TRAIL SURFACE TYPE:

Packed mineral soil with rocky sections

WHAT TO RIDE:

This property offers a challenging fun ride, with approximately 8 km of single-track trail. A great trail to start on is Slow Ride. Just located off the parking lot, it is relatively flat with some easy turns. If you like this type of trail work your way through Thunder Road and take a left turn at Take it Easy before working up the main road to Rattle Way. For more of a challenge with some elevation changes try some of our intermediate trails. If those trails still aren’t enough hit Devil’s and Dust, Highway to hell and Between a Rock and a Hard Place. Rock gardens are abundant along the trails, so exercise caution.
