Off-Road Bike Trails

Ready to shred?

Go off-road biking on the new Lennox & Addington County Forest Trails. Be immersed in 51 hectares (127 acres) of rugged beauty of the Canadian Shield’s landscape of tall pines and granite.

In L&A we take cycling seriously. In fact, “The Pines” section which is a portion of the Lennox & Addington County Forest is a mixed-use loop of trails perfect for biking. Riders can experience 6 kilometers of old logging roads and single-tract trails designed with termed curves and elevations that incorporate the natural terrain of the forest. 

What to know before you go

Motorized and non-motorized traffic are asked to share 250 metres of The Pines Loop. Bicycle riders and hikers (& snowshoers and skiers) please watch for ATVs (& snowmobiles). If you want to avoid this short section of trail you can use Church Pass.

ATVers and snowmobilers, please stay on this section of the County Forest. It is accessed from 5th Concession Road to the east, and from the north-most section. Motorized riders are asked to stay along the hydro lines east of the forest to connect to other trail systems.
