A classic bypass for Catalyst, this trail meanders by the river, crossing at the end towards the defunct Sky Pilot. The extension has been bushwhacked and reopened in Sept 2017.

Be weary of erosion along the river bank, especially after a storm.

 think someone needs to edit this section - the part north of the river crossing is 100% not a green trail - was in the don yesterday and some beginner riders i ran into were upset as they used to app and it told them that gnarly descent was a green / they walked it all

 It's been a couple of years since I rode this section. I'll have a look today.
Thanks for the feedback.

 Should be noted this trail was always called "Beaver Flats" by the original builders in the Don, not lower cat. Added a request for name change to suit.

 Agreed. A Beginner level trail should be just that: a novice can ride it without a dismount.

 I'd suggest that lack of maintenance and the lack of a beginner connection to the trail are larger issues, both of which are things that app users can be advised of in the trail description rather than designating it more difficult. I've walked this with the dog more times than I can count and the overgrowth, downed branches, and lack of traffic leave this trail looking far more difficult than it is. The features along Boo Trail are similar if not more difficult, but Boo Trail is well traveled and looks easier while these trails are extremely similar.
