Another North Shore classic filled with mandatory A-frames, skinnies, steep drops and granite TTFs. Brought back from the dead thanks to the NSMBA TAP program, the 5 year rebuild maintains the integrity of the original while bringing the trail experience into the modern era with jumps, rollers, doubles and even a rollercoaster. One of the more difficult Seymour trails due to its exposure, steepness and consequences.

       I rode Boogieman today for the first time in years. It was awesome! When I rode it last a few years ago it seemed as if it had been forgotten and was kinda sketchy. Now its got great woodwork and the lines are all maintained. I felt like I was ripping the old school gnar but on a modern bike and the trail had properly built wood. Right on!

       This trail always delivers. A true North Shore classic.

       This trail is awesome. It has some rocks roots drops and skinnys but its also very flowy once you find the best lines. The only problem is the trail should be black except for the exit.

       Strava line opening up just after the short steep skinny option (vs rooty line to its right) that follows the big wooden roller, before the booter.

       Absolutely fantastic trail, one of my favourite on the shore with some classic shore features. Lots of rides arounds.

      Should probably be a single black trail. Nothing steep or too janky, just a couple mandatory 1-3 ft drops and the iconic tree ride over the ravine.

       The long log ride and the ending (past the Boogie Nights connection) make it a double black in my opinion.

       I’ve ridden it a lot recently and In my opinion this is one of the best sanctioned trails on the shore, it’s jam packed with features, and it’s not too hard for moderate to advanced riders

       People seem to not know where Boogieman earns its double black rating. Lower Boogieman (ride straight past the boogie nights start) and you shall find true North Shore classic double black gnar.
