Default Good Friday Ride near Ottawa

It was +15 and beautiful so the boys and I went for a ride to check the roads and trails near Conley and Copleland west of Ottawa. Secondary dirt roads were fine but trails and unmaintained roads were still snow covered/muddy. Good check ride and bikes ran well. Stopped at Macs in Munster for Ben and Gerrys ice cream.

Nice! This is an old thread but this is my neck of the woods too. I have had my bike down that way last week but haven't explored too far off road. A lot of dirt roads connecting farm fields but I'm not sure how many folks are OK sharing with bikes. If you know any good trails in particular, I'd appreciate any reviews.

Hey, good to hear of other riders in the area. I use the Backroad Mapbook and just explore every trail I can find. One of my favourites is off of Ashton station Road on the south side of Hwy 10. Turn right on Kings and when the road stops...keep going! Nice un maintained trail, there is a shallow creek to Ford. Google Pinery Road, in the same area, packed sand sweepers you can make it all the way down to Smiths Falls on the dirt. Send me a pm if you want to go for a ride sometime.

Sounds good. And thanks for the info, I'll definitely have to check those out.
