need some help from riders in Toronto

Hi guys, my buddy and I just got into MTBing and i remember seeing a thread here a couple weeks ago with a bunch of pics of the DonValley trails. Are these the ones that start at Bayview and Pottery Rd? They looked awesome with all the stunts on them as well the singletrack. I'd like to go ride these this week sometime if they are the same trails. Could anyone here lead me in the right direction and maybe give me a few tips on what to expect? Just to give you guys a little background as far as riding skill is concerned, we both used to ride mountainbikes when we were younger and we both race motorcycles so we're pretty comfortable on two wheels. We haven't done much steep singletrack stuff though and some of that stuff in the pictures looked pretty steep!

thanks in advance!

I usually enter the trail at the Don Mills/DVP entrance. There is a park there with lots of parking. The Don can be as technical as you want to make it. Some of the stunts are pretty crazy but there are lots that are very doable. Have fun.

I enter the trails by the Bayview and Pottery road area. Like Chubbs McFatty says there are lots of stunts but most of them can be ridden around. I would say that you should be of intermediate skill to ride these trails even if you avoid the stunts. There is some easy singletrack next to the river for the beginners.
