Rattlesnake Point

I've been doing light trail riding for a while, but I'm getting bored of my usual spots (Erindale Park, etc.). I've been looking at Rattlesnake Point for a while, but I don't want to go up there, then find out it's more MTB stuff than BMX.can anyone from the GTA shed some light on the issue?

You live in Mississauga? I do too. If you know where steven louis is, the new highschool, theres a bmx/skate park pretty much beside it. Theres always the Hershey Centre and some places by Square one also. Riding around in the street is pretty fun too.

yeah, I have a list of like 15 skate parks in the city, but I'm looking for trails. speaking of parks, how is Hershy? I haven't gone there yet. I usually only go to Central and Port Credit.

Never been there before. I ride mostly trails on my MTB, and some street stuff, but I dont usually go to any skate parks. Its pretty big though. Lotsa poser skateboarders and bmxers there though.

If you know where Erin Centre BLVD is, there is a forest trail off of it. Go into the forest, take the first left, than the first right and keep going forward. Look to the right when u take the right turn and theres these pretty cool small dirtjump like things in this dried up creek or somthing. Theres berms and stuff. I dont know what you can handle on your Bmx though.

Why do you want to ride trails anyways? There's street, vert, flatland. And that BMX racing thing thats like 4X.

Ive done trails before on a BMX, not much fun... The place in the forest I told you about doesnt have huge jumps, its like this curvy flat trail like thing. Theres also trails you can explore in that forest. Seriously, just go into a forest and there's likely to be trails if you look. Find some other people that ride seriously and see where they go.

Other than this, theres not many trials in the suburbs.

nah, they're more fun. they're lighter, have more torque, and have only one gear (so you don't have to worry about it). I still do mountain bike stuff, I just use BMX bikes.

Riding a bmx on mtb trails is dumb.
