Porcupine Ridge Trails



*PLEASE NOTE: The maintenance of the Porcupine Ridge Trails was taken over by MORCA (the Muskoka Off-Road Cycling Association) in 2018. As a result, the trails will be closed until upkeep has been completed. 

Rated as some of the most technically challenging mountain biking trails in Ontario, Porcupine Ridge is a long standing favourite to those riders seeking to test their skills and endurance. The mountain bike park is designed, and caters to advanced and expert level riders only. Riders are rewarded for their efforts with stunning landscapes, including a bird’s eye view of Lake Muskoka, many rolling granite outcroppings, and moss carpeted woodland. Trails continually surprise with countless rock gardens, roots, drop-offs, and many man made technical trail features including bridges, teeter-totters and jumps.

Notes from MORCA:

– A highly anticipated Spring 2019 re-opening of Porcupine Ridge!
– There is no potable water supply at Porcupine Ridge, so please ensure you are bringing enough water for your entire ride! Please “Pack in Pack out” and use the garbage bins provided in the parking lot. Please DO NOT leave bags next to the garbage, as these will only attract unwanted animals to the area.
– Currently, there are no picnic tables or benches for lunch or snack break. Bear with us, as we are working to have some in place before spring riding begins.
– As this is a volunteer based club, please let us know via Facebook/Instagram/Email ([email protected]) if there are any trails requiring immediate maintenance, trees down, etc.
– No motorized vehicles are permitted on the Porcupine Ridge trails.
– Trails are approximately 10 minutes from downtown Bracebridge, with many options for lunch, coffee, local brews. 
– Santa’s Village is also located across from the trails, which is a huge attraction for the area in the summer months. Check out their website for more details of what they offer. Santa’s Village also has a camping area, and cabins available for rent during the summer months. You are able to ride directly to the Porcupine Ridge trails from this campground.

Please note: a day pass or membership is required to ride these trails. For details click here
