Trails on this side of the mountain were not enjoyable. Did jolly rancher and baggins. Have not had a ride in the Fraser valley that I enjoyed less in my 6-7 years of ridding. Note that I am more of a decent focused rider. Unless you are riding purely for exercise avoid these trails.

This trail feels pretty sketchy, but it's freaking fun! Top end could use some fresh dirt and a trim, but I'm not complaining as the steep loose rooty shoot is a blast to bomb down, lower half is more flowy but still rough and old school feeling. Good one to end the day with.

Not sure why this is a black, the downhills are pretty easy. There's one or two punchy climbs but it's a pretty tame trail.

Can you shuttle to the trailhead of this one and other DH trails in the area/on the mountain?

EDIT: I see there's a gate saying you cannot.

Trail Lorax
Is this trail a mtn bike only trail ? Because I ran into several hikers going up Lorax. It’s pretty dangerous for us riders and the hikers because of the speed of the trail and some blind corners. I love the trail but in all honesty the hikers are ruining it for me. If it is a mtn bike only trail I think big signs should be posted at the top and bottom of the trail for safety.

Very fun trail for those you like fast, technical, loose and rocky. Rideable for both hardtail and dually. Blue difficulty. All ladders or drops can be rolled.

Trail gets pretty sketch in the top half but is totally worth doing!... if you’re in the mood for careening down a rock slide riddled w roots and the odd drop. At least there are no surprise switchbacks... pretty straight. Then just after the intersection w BTLC it swoops through some beautiful woods, and gets really flowy! W the odd root drops. Overall this trail is for those who want to find their tech limit and then truly appreciate the flow below.

Good continuation of the climbing network, little bit more challenging then the lower green trail. Couple fun rock faces to scramble up. Tricky in the slick. Yeehaw

As an intermediate north shore rider, this trail is one of my new favourites. Quite an easy blue, super fun, flowy, and there’s nothing but berms, easy rollers and very little technical aspects to this trail.

First timer here. I just completed merv’s it was fun but pretty hard for me, I had to get off a lot. It’s marked as a BLUE run and not green. Since it’s the only run I have done I can’t say if it easier or harder than a green.

Thanks for the heads up. Probably more of a green run with a blue streak, but one of the easier trails. Granted creek crossing, and some other sections are challenging for a novice rider.

Upper half before it crosses the green is a disaster of loose rocks and pointless obstacles (1/5). Lower half is better but still not awesome (3/5), maybe worth doing short laps on from the green if you're short on time I guess.

I rode this trail for the first time today. It's a great trail. Technical but flows too. Really cool bridges and some fun rock sections. Great views too.

The start is not obvious, ride up the road till you approach what looks like a weather station. The trail starts to the right of the station.
