Buckwallow is a great mix of flowy singletrack, and technical Canadian Shield rocky bits.

Features -none-


Buckwallow is a privately owned cycling centre in the heart of the Muskokas. For $10 you can ride all day at these pristine trails.

This trail system combines doubletrack access roads with a mix of singletrack that range from easy to extreme. There is great signage throughout the centre so you always know where you are and what you're about to get yourself into. The singletrack trails are rated from one hoof (easiest) to five hooves (hardest).

The staff provides an overview of the system when you arrive and explains the directions of the trails, which are indicated on the map - trailheads are displayed by a dot. The trails can be ridden in both directions, but you must give way to riders that start at the dot.

There are currently 18.5 km of singletrack and an additional 12 km of doubletrack, but Mike and his team are constantly building new trails.


Buckwallow offers about as much fun in a day as you'll find on your bike. A great system for all levels of riders. This "ride" provides a great mix of doubletrack and all levels of singletrack, including the most difficult trails in the system.

From the entrance, get acquainted with the system on one of the four hoof trails, Loam Rider. This will be a good gauge for the difficulty you'll encounter for the rest of the ride as there are only a couple trails that are rated more difficult.

When you exit Loam Rider, keep traveling along Muskoka Road away from the entrance and try all the singletracks that peak your interest. When you come to an intersection on the access roads, stick to the right and head down Mohawk Trail. This will bring you to West D'Nile, a fun, rocky ride.

Take either Burnt Pine Trail or continue along Mohawk Trail until you reach Inside Track and make a left. There are several singletrack trails along here that are worth checking out, especially Bear Bluff if you're up for the challenge.

As you finish this section of trails off Inside Track and Mohawk Trail, you'll come to the outhouse, which is extremely clean if you require it's services - if not, hang a right on Marsh Trail. From here, this ride has you doing the final three singletrack trails (Hoof Hearted, Spur Line, and Moose Mayhem) in reverse. In either direction, these trails are a lot of fun!

Moose Mayhem will bring you back out at the Buckwallow gate. Grab a bevy and a snack and then head back out to do it all in reverse!
