Forest Trails

Take a ride in the L&A Forest!

Welcome to the Lennox & Addington Forest Trails. Be immersed in 120 acres of rugged beauty of the Canadian Shield's tall pines and granite landscapes.

Take a ride in the Lennox & Addington Forest and experience 10 kilometres of logging roads and single-track trails designed with bermed curves, built structures and elevations that incorporate the natural terrain of the forest. 

The forest is ideal for mountain bikers and hikers in the spring, summer & fall, and for snowshoers and cross-country skiiers in the winter. 

What to know before you go...

Bicycle riders and hikers (& snowshoers and skiers) please stay off the Orange Marker section of the trail. It is a small section of the trail that is designated for motorized traffic only. There is a section of trail that runs parallel for non-motorized folks.

ATVers and snowmobilers, please keep to the Orange Marker 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.

The Pines Loop
Difficulty: Easy
Directional Markers: Green
Length: Approx. 2.5km

The Pines Loop will get you where you need to go, as most of the interior trails connect to to it.  The loop incorporates old logging roads and provides access to all the trails in the forest. Mountain bikers will enjoy the high berms at the main corners. 

Dipsy Doodle
Difficulty: Moderate/Difficult
Directional Markers: Dark Blue
Length: Approx. 2.4km

As the name suggests, the Dipsy Doodle Trails take you up, down and around the western-most section of the forest. Explore Little Rock & Big Rock and make a jump or two off the skinnies. There are many sections of this trail, some wide and some not-so-wide. There is quite a drop off along Ridgeline so be careful!

Southern Dip
Difficulty: Easy
Directional Markers: Purple
Length: Approx. 600m
The Southern Dip is a nice little hike that couples two old logging roads with a newly-created path that weaves through the forest. It’s not a long detour from the Pines Loop, but is definitely a worthwhile hike or ride near the southern border of the property.
Land of Enchantment
Difficulty: Medium
Directional Markers: Light Grey
Length: Approx. 1.5km

Enter the land of Enchantment! This trail is accessible from Dipsy Doodle and Southern Dip. The middle takes you through bright green moss at Emerald City before you head down to Fraggle Rock… it doesn’t get much more enchanted than that! 

Cut Through Trail
Difficulty: Easy
Directional Markers: Red
Length: Approx. 750m
Cut Through Trail meanders east-west through the forest, connecting with the Up & Down Trail at Crisscross Junction. The trail takes you through the widely-spaced planted section of the managed forest and into the most densely treed area of the property.
Up & Down Trail
Difficulty: Easy
Directional Markers: Yellow
Length: Approx. 500m
On the Up & Down Trail you weave through the forest, connecting with the Cut Through Trail at Crisscross Junction. The path takes you through mature pines, maples and birch groves for an enjoyable hike or ride.
Church Pass
Difficulty: Easy
Directional Markers: Light Blue
Length: Approx. 250m

The Church Pass provides a straight on view to the Flinton Church (or takes you directly away from it, if you prefer). It’s a nice straight trail with large berms at both end. Build up some speed and take them hard!

Lost & Found
Difficulty: Medium | Hard
Directional Markers: Brown
Length: Approx. 750m

You’ll be Lost & Found in this section of the forest. The name is appropriate, as we initially thought that the Derecho storm in 2022 destroyed this entire section of trail. Fortunately we were able to salvage most of it!

Motorized Trail
Directional Markers: Orange
Length: Approx. 750m

Only motorized vehicles are permitted in this part of the trail. Bicycle riders and hikers, please avoid this section.

ATVs, dirt bikes and snowmobiles are required to stay on this section of the County Forest. It is accessed from 5th Concession Road to the east, and from Old Flinton Road from the south. Motorized riders are asked to stay along the hydro lines east of the forest to connect to other regional trail systems.
