Trail Overview

A crossroad trail located in Grimsby, Ontario, sandwiched between Mud Street and Ridge Road, the trail consists of a thick clay-covered pathway littered with large ruts and mud. It can be very sticky and difficult to navigate in wet conditions as the main hazard of this trail is the large 5-foot deep ditches on both the eastern and western sides; they can easily consume an unequipped vehicle if they slide off the trail, forward momentum isn't consistent, or the wrong tires are used. This crossroad is mainly used by heavy farming equipment and can be heavily rutted and soft in the wet months, while during the dry seasons, it can be much easier.
