This is not a biking trail like the five of diamonds over at falcon resort which is biking trails but requires a good downhill full suspension bike. You will kill yourself if you attempt the falls section on the southwest side along with the loop which goes around McGillivray Lake. The blue highway route is the section you want for mountain biking and is probably the best trail in Manitoba for intermediate mountain bikers. 1 star in 2017 because the falls washed out the trail and made it difficult to just hike, 5 stars for blue highway route though!

great trail...though has been washed out at the start so some boulder climbing and navigation was required. But the wife and 4yr old son made the whole trail easily. Will definitely do again!

This would be a 5 star review if the trail wasn't closed! I went yesterday and the hiking path has been completely wiped out. The walk ways and foot bridges have been wrecked by some weather conditions and so its not walkable. We followed the bike trail and it was ok but it didn't lead to the lake like we had driven out there for :( hopefully this path gets repaired soon!
