What is the hardest trail in Nova Scotia?


#1

I had this on my mind today. What’s everyone’s opinion?


#2

Anything at Wrandees if you limit yourself to the original 1 metre width of singletrack.


#3

Wrandees definitely popped in my mind. Also the beginning of Flat lake Loop before going up to Halifax Rock. I’m assuming flying in the air and being on a skinny 50’ in the air is not included.


#4

The “Neil Route” through Wrandees. You can always count on it to destroy you even when you feel that you are at your strongest.


#5

Technicality:

  1. Gords Gold then do Lake loop reverse.
  2. Ebirch
  3. Flipside reverse, death march and Suzie q
  4. Any NS Mtb Race against time.

#6

Wrandees for tech, no doubt. Gord’s is challenging.

Evil Birch going in is tough, fitness wise if you push.


#7

Define “hardest”?

for someone super fit, but with only mediocre bike handling skills, a really steep climb may not even phase them, but they will be challenged by a flat technical trail. others will fly over the tech, but find the steep climb very hard.


#8

Both physically demanding and technically chalanging.


#9

Through Hell and Back at Grey Mountain is a pretty tough trail. I think trying to find the toughest is obviously going to be very subjective.


#10

Yeah, Hell and Back is probably the single hardest trail to clean without a full on heart attack, huge climbs that keep coming and a nasty awkward rock garden in the middle.


#11

I guess I should have worded the question as “ what are some of the “hardest” trails in Nova Scotia”. It’s to specific as is. Thanks to everyone that has left a note. :+1:
