The Forest Lea mountain bike recreation trails are developed and maintained by volunteer riders in the Ottawa Valley. RIDE AT YOUR OWN RISK!! trails are located at 1846 (the end of) Forest Lea Rd., West of Pembroke, exit S. off Hwy. 17, travel 5 km to end of pavement. A trail map is posted to the right of the xc ski club cabin, where the mtb trails start. Trail news updated on this site regularly. Please contribute to these trails by purchasing a trail membership - details at the links below.
The Pines are dry and good to go, as is Cut Bars and Fenceline. The bridges over the beaver dam were moved from a flood, but they are back in position and safe to ride (you will notice the water level is lwoer this year due to a dam blowout below - with the low water I found a computer and pump in the mud about elbow deep, carnage from wipe outs on the bridge, I would guess. Not to worry, both items are garbage). Oliver's is wet/frozen. New bridge on Q to gap a perennial muddy spot.
