Amazing views atop the Niagara Escarpment at Kelso Conservation Area will make you feel a million miles from home. Here you’ll find easy access to some of the region’s best mountain bike trails with onsite parking at staging areas and access to trail maps. The 22 km of trails are well marked and rated by skill level for convenience.

Beginners on Kelso’s trails are recommended to try the green and blue loops (about 10 km) and spend only an hour at a time on the trails. A proper fitting helmet, padded cycling shorts, a partner and a water bottle are needed for this trip.

If you’re looking for an up-hill challenge, kick-start your ride up the ski-hill at Kelso. Follow the blue and black trails or extend your ride and try them both (22 km). Some even do it twice! You’ll be rewarded with a downhill slope at the end, so treat yourself to a chicken wing feast in Milton after your ride.

Be sure to check out Kelso’s Mountain Bike Skills Zone, which features wooden bridges, rollers, rocks and logs so riders of all ages can learn to properly tackle technical trail features.
