Rolling technical trail that offers lots of opportunity to work on your technical climbing skills. Best trails to learn skills to ride on the North Shore. Travels from Fishermans Trail in the LSCR, across District of North Vancouver land to Old Buck in BC Parks. An exit for most of the downhill trails on Mt. Seymour.

It's mostly flat, when compared to the rest of the Shore. Its other advantages include: you share the same parking lot with the hucksters; the bridle path has a few ladders; some technical climbs; and some tricky slopes; but won't get you into trouble like some of the more difficult trails. You'll see lots of other riders on this trail as most other trails on Seymour dump out onto it.

      Hid a few more big rocks in the climb east of McCartney Creek. Also some smaller ones to improve drainage at the bottom of the climb.

      Refilled trailbed in the climb east of the new bridge. Added a step to keep it in place, and hid a few rocks under the new dirt.

       Had some good rides. Probably easier with a full suspension bike.
