The North Shore Mountain Bike Association (NSMBA) will begin work to create an “all access trail loop” by upgrading three existing multi-use trails on Mount Seymour in North Vancouver to create a fun, inclusive mountain bike experience for individuals who use adaptive mountain bikes (aMTBs). The loop incorporates three existing trails: Old Buck to Bridle Path, Bridle Path to Empress Bypass, and Empress Bypass descent.

      More work on twinning the steep section east of McCartney Creek. Should open up pretty soon - will be nice to have a dedicated bike descent lane :)
