We just went and the trails are closed due to forest beetle infestation maintenance.

Beautiful hiking, biking, snowshoeing, and cross-country skiing trail that offers an array of forested environments with their own unique plants and animals. Although, the trail is peppered with numerous winding trails (optimal for mountain biking), which can be disorienting and may get you lost if you don't have a map handy. Despite this, these trails offer excellent obstacles for mountain bikers, with varying difficulty levels, and are not limited to bikers, as you may choose to walk them if you're interested in a change in terrain. Overall, the bikers and hikers on the trail were very friendly, providing users with a friendly experience.

Brownhill Tract offers excellent opportunities for biking as well as hiking. Featuring tracks ranging from simple to technical there is a wide range of difficulty for all types of trail users. The Jack Track which flows from trail to trail is 16km long. The trail is however prone to both bugs and poison ivy so dress appropriately.

The AllTrails isn't accurate. Very easy to get lost here. But it's beautiful and serene. Many trails to choose from.

Not too bad for snow shoeing. Terrain is woody, loopy, and pretty flat. Variety of trails to choose.
