Trail John Deer
A guy at the trailhead told me this trail was "easy, fun, and flowy." I actually found it quite challenging, with 2-3 steep areas and many, many roots. Not a black but definitely more challenging than something like Half Nelson. I loved it but my more beginner-intermediate gf was having trouble.

Rode a section of this today for the first time. Climbed GSM and wanted to get to Forever After, so we took Baden Powell. BP to Severed D was pretty fun. More black than blue, in my opinion. From Severed towards Forever it got even steeper and more treacherous. You've been warned!

This trail joining to Asian Adonis is a blue in my opinion, the section that splits off from Asian is extremely steep, with large roots, rock, very tight sections. No room to recover from a error, high probability of injury. In my opinion the second half is beyond double black.

I’m an intermediate/blue-trail rider; can fairly comfortably ride John Deer... wanting to work my way up to easier blacks. If I wanted to ride Asian Adonis, what’s the top section of this trail like, from Baden Powell to the entrance of Asian? Some of the comments here have me a little anxious, like this is black-pushing-doubleblack trail, closer to Boogieman than John Deer so I don’t wanna get on something that’s outta my league... but would give Asian Adonis a go!

Challenging and enjoyable. The trail is pretty steep in some sections with tight switchbacks at steep grade with some rocks to traverse coming through the switchbacks. Physically and technically challenging. I find myself clipping rocks with my pedals and have yet to ride the whole thing without putting a foot down, but I’ll keep trying.

This may be rated double black, relative to the rest of Seymour. This mind bender is significantly and consistently more tech than Boogie (at least the top part before Boogie nights turnoff), Deer John and Empress. It may just be due to the time of year, erosion and raw nature of it, but cleaning this requires deep focus/skill, apparently neither of which I possess. There's a crank deep water rut forming on last steep section, too.

Possibly my favourite section of the Seymour climb. The corners are open enough that you can get some good uphill flow going. And it takes you right to the rowdy part of Severed, perfect for tacking a little bit more onto the end of a ride.

I am a definite "intermediate" level rider and I don't get how this is black?! it's awesome and flowy, less tech than Espresso or Forever After.

Phenomenal climbing trail. Thanks for all the beautiful work Martin and Penny. Rode GSM for the first time today and enjoyed every inch of it. It's so great to be able to loop back to Baden without having to head over to Old Buck or Hyannis. Awesome. I'll definitely be heading up to ride some Seymour loops more often. Thanks again!

Great climbing trail. It climbs through a beautiful part of the forest, and the grade is nice and moderate.

My son and I rode Good Sir this morning which allowed us to do a couple of laps up there which doesn't happen often for us. The trail meanders beautifully through pristine forest and feels like it's been there forever - a testament to the fantastic engineering and careful planning that went into this right down to the precise fern transplanting! "Isn't this awesome!" was echoed by many of the other excited riders we encountered along the trail today. Congratulations Martin and Penny and to all the other volunteers! Good Sir Martin will be one of the most enjoyed trails on the north shore.

This section gps'ed on Seymour is mostly all rideable. The section from "Old Buck" to the Powerlines was upgraded last winter for an easier climb and is used a lot.

The descent portion from the powerlines to the "BP to Powerline Connector" was upgraded for the BC Bike Race. The trail after this point is not rideable, it gets very steep with steps. Once it hits "Bridle Path" its rideable again.
