WCC Trails provide an unmatched mountain bike riding experience in Ontario. Born from the hard work of many volunteers year after year, the trails have transformed into the core playground for many WCC members, local residents, and visitors.
Ways to contribute
The trails continue to be developed year round by volunteers. Signing up for a trail day is an easy way to get outside and meet people who share the common interest of maintaining and improving the trail. You’ll automatically be notified of upcoming trail days by creating a web account on this site. The WCC Trails newsletter will give you a heads up of upcoming trail days. You can also just check the website, as upcoming trail days will get posted to the front page.
Aside from helping on trail day, you can contribute to our shared growth and success in other ways…
- Follow the WCC Trail Rules
- Join the committee
- Chip in for expenses
Directions to the WCC Trail Parking Lots
There are two parking lots. Make sure you know where your ride starts. It’s probably the Glasgow Parking Lot , but if you get it wrong, it’s a long ride to the other lot.
Glasgow Parking Lot (Main Lot)
The Glasgow Parking Lot is where you probably want to go to meet people or start group rides.

The Pines Parking Lot
This is also referred to as the Snyders Road Parking Lot. It’s a great way to get directly to the Pines trails, but not the typical meeting spot. It provides the best winter access.
There is an extremely dangerous rail crossing on the road leading to the Pines Parking Lot of the WCC Trails. This crossing was the site of a fatal accident. The Pines Parking Lot is accessed off Snyders road in Petersburg (not the Glasgow Parking Lot).
The WCC strongly recommends that the following rules be adhered to:
- All vehicles must come to a complete stop before crossing the railroad tracks which cross the trail access road immediately south of the trailhead parking lot.
- After stopping, all drivers of vehicles must roll down the driver’s side window and then deliberately look to the west and the east up and down the railroad tracks to confirm that no trains are using the railroad tracks in the proximity of the trail access road.
- Vehicles may only pass across the railroad tracks after steps 1 and 2 are complete and the driver has verified with complete certainty that no trains are using the railroad tracks in the proximity of the trail access road.”
