A North Shore classic, technical with plenty of roots and rocks and some optional woodwork.

The old long skinny has been replaced with a coaster, but there are other skinnies to enjoy along the way.

Connect to Salvation for more woodwork and skinnies or continue to merge with Incline and exit via Power Line

Access Info

Easily accessed from the road, by riding up the road or parking at the "Vancouver Picnic Area" parking lot. Can also pedal up Mushroom Trail to access where it intersects with Incline.
