    my hubby and his friends hit the trails alot. but they always go to hiawatha. there is ft. creek, but there are tons of dog walkers there so you have to be careful, and there isnt as much as hiawatha. stokley creek used to let people ride or hike and they have miles and miles. new owners now, but you could ask them.

    hubby says any of the 4wheeler/skidoo trails also, like old goulais bay road, or the end of conners road etc...

    My son was a pro Mtb Racer and has been all over North America, lived in Colorado and Arizona. He says Hiawatha is one of the best places to ride on the continent. He really misses those trails.

    There is some pretty good riding at the end of Conners(or is it O'Connors Rd.) road.
    Not mountain bike trials per say, but some nice riding none the less.
    Also the end of 2nd line past the ball fields.

    i know there is also a trail that goes all the way from the end of old goulais bay rd to goulais, it follows the power lines, i think that would be a fun trail to tackle this summer.. i took it last year in my jimmy all the way to goulais.. also comes out at the top of mile hill depending on which way you go.

    conners road is off 6th line just past hiawatha and mockingbird farm. its only about a mile or so long then the road is gated. its skidoo trails. lots of us 4wheel there, but you could bike too. you can go forever and ever! check out the mnr crown use maps for the area and they show all the trails. same with the old goulais bay road, lots of other trails off it too.

    out at goulais behind buttermilk out to robertsons lake and the other lakes and skidoo trails. searchmont used to have summer biking on their x country trails, lot of single track - hubby loved it, but it was too much for me!

    there would be nothing to stop you from riding on the trails. the bike trails were not close to the ski hill but down the whitman dam road. they had a map, and good thing, too, they were hard to see since they were single track. you should call the folks at stokley, its so beautiful there.
