Grab your bike, load up with plenty of water, hit the trails in the Ganaraska Forest and be prepared for a few challenges. We offer hundreds of kilometres of twisting, turning, hill-climbing single track trails and logging roads. You will need a whole summer to explore the forest.

The Paul's Dirty Enduro EPIC Tail is a 60 km mountain bike trail that winds its way through some of the most beautiful woodlands of the majestic Ganaraska Forest. The route retains its prestigious EPIC Trail designation from the International Mountain Bike Association by meeting or exceeding all minimum standards, including being a demanding, mostly single track adventure through a natural setting. Paul’s Dirty Enduro EPIC Trail is one of only three of its kinds in Canada and celebrates a true backcountry riding experience that is technically and physically challenging; often defined as the best of the best mountain bike trails.

Paul’s Dirty Enduro EPIC Trail is named for Paul Rush, who was an avid mountain biker who loved to ride in the Ganaraska Forest. Sadly, Paul took his own life in 1995. For 20 years his friends and family ran the annual Paul’s Dirty Enduro as a memorial to Paul and to raise funds and awareness about the tragedy of suicide. For 2016 the event is being “Tuned-Up, which means there will be no official “Enduro” and However, there will be an opportunity for 15km or 30 km rides if you would like to also participate in some strategic planning for the next version of “Paul’s” and take suicide prevention training. There is no “ride only” option. Bloomfield Bicycle is no longer affiliated with this ride.  If you would like more information on “Paul’s Tune-up” please contact Kerri Davies of the Canadian Mental Health Associationkdavies@cmhahkpr.ca  who is working with the Rush family on this fall’s event.
