Trail in the Lower Seymour Conservation area - accessible from a couple of points and can be done in either direction. A good option after doing Ned's Atomic Dustbin. Connects to the Seymour Suspension bridge that links Lynn Valley to Seymour.

Access Info

From the bottom of Ned's continue down the trail, and turn right at the 1st intersection. From here continue until you see another trail heading to the left and up a small knoll to Nuggies Bench. From here turn right to Bottle Top which starts out flat then descends. Exit was rerouted to connect to the Seymour suspension bridge.

       Super fun little trail going down. It recently had some work done to smooth out the janky bits (thanks you!) and is now much more ridable for beginner/intermediate riders. Good for skills progression. The north shore needs more trails like this!

       Long ridge with ups and down, the end is pretty fast. It's fun and ideal to access the LSCR

       This trail is definitely a "Dark Blue" at the very least - the ending section is quite steep.

       Good to have this trail back. Some loose sections, which always test your skills.

       I agree with @beestrangler. Its a dark blue. Some steep bits and tight turns that really test my nerves. I'm a beginner riding hardtail, and as I get better this trail won't be as intimidating. Still, no regrets!! I'll be back.

       Thanks to the builders for the nice new reroute of the climb up to Bottletop Knoll. Much needed!
