Approach this trail with caution.

There has been no maintenance on this trail in several years-the only work this trail has seen is by Metro Vancouver to remove expired structures. Much of the trail bed is severely eroded, suffers from significant drainage issues (some sections are a creek bed in the wet) and much of the aged armouring is blown out and strewn throughout the trail. Much of the trail is in a severe state of neglect and is a former shadow of the the crown jewel it once was. However, it can still be ridden although a DH bike would be the recommended.

This trail still sees winter closures which has little of the original intention to protect the trail from impact.

Access Info

Park at P1 in BC Parks, ride down the road to the trail access at the radio tower roads. The trail starts at the corner of the two radio tower gravel roads.

 Any chance of seeing an early opening of CBC due to the mild winter? *wishful thinking*

 Open now - lots of riders on the trail last night. In good shape for this time of year, although I had not been on it in 2 years so my take may be a bit off...

 Prime example of a classic northshore trail being destroyed by passive decommissioning. The trail isn't being closed outright but since no one is allowed to work on it the features are rotting away one at a time and erosion will soon make this unrideable.

This is being done by metro vancouver and they are doing it this way because they know there will be outcry if they close it outright so instead they just don't let anyone work on it. Same plan as Ned's
