Fun rip on the Burnaby Mountain lower trails... start off with Dead Moped and head to Ben & Jerry's before a short climb up the TCT. From there, a bit of a steep up the classic Mel's trail to head across the mountain towards the fun and flowy Gearjammer. Take the fork right and take Uppercut which connects to Lower Snake to finish on of the best long intermediate descents on the mountain. Scoot back up the Powerline Trail for a climb to finish off with another long descent down the entire North Road Trail. At the bottom, head back up the Powerline Trail and back to the parking area... or hell do it all again!?

Relatively snow-free now but very wet due to melting and rain. Cleared drains and removed debris from trail. Some larger debris still buried in remaining snow patches.

Mostly clear of snow but very soft and very wet!! Cleared some drains and removed debris from the trail. Significant puddle next to bridge near bottom: water can't drain under the bridge. Very muddy and sediment flowing down in the middle of the trail.

Several snags overhanging the trail and branches/small trees hanging low over the boardwalk. Icy at the moment on the bridges due to packed snow but finally starting to melt.
Pipeline Trail

Tree across tree near the bottom of Lower Snake. The tree isn't very big around but pretty long. The more pressing issue is also a snag right beside it, which could fall onto the trail.
