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.
