Mountain Biking

There are many exciting mountain biking opportunities in the Northumberland County Forest.

The Cobourg Cycling Club hosts weekly rides within our forest.  

There are three main mountain biking areas:

  • Beagle Club Trails
  • Woodland Trail
  • Single Track Trails, east of Beagle Club Road

Mountain bikes are permitted on all motorized trails. 

Beagle Club Trails

180 Beagle Club Road, Harwood

The Beagle Club Trails range from 1 km to 14 km.

Winter use: Please note from December 1 to March 31, the Beagle Club Trails are open for skiing only.  Woodland Trails remain open to non-skiers in the winter.

Woodland Trails

7363 County Road 45, Roseneath

The Woodland Trails parking and trailhead is located on the east side of County Road 45, across from Woodland Road.

The Woodland Purple Finch (3 km), Black Oak (7.5 km) and Sweet Fern (9 km) loops share some common trail. Users can choose to go right or left at the first split and will find signage for the loops in either direction.

Single-track trails

The Dragonfly, Stonewall and Elderberry trails are narrow, windy trails with some steep hills. These trails are shared with hikers but the layout is more in-line with mountain biking. New riders will find this trail challenging.
