    Metro Vancouver

One of the North Shore classics. Much of the optional skinnies have rotted away or been removed by Metro Vancouver.

Technical with plenty of roots and rocks, there is one big optional log ride that still exists. Follow the trail out to Incline for a rowdy ride to the powerlines or take one of two options into Salvation for some old school tech.

This trail intersects with incline where you can ride down to the powerlines and up to Pingu or down to the lower trail network. You can also access Salvation part way down Corkscrew.

Access Info

Easily accessed from the road, by riding up the road or parking at the "Vancouver Picnic Area" parking lot.
