Dead moped is a lower Burnaby Mountain trail which starts at the end of North Road. It is an XC style trail which has an optional intermediate raised ladder trail feature.

Access Info

Dead Moped is the natural continuation of North Road Trail. At the northern end of North Road Trail, turn right, and follow the trail on your left until you see it duck back into the trees. This trail has two main sections. A left hand trail linking up to the Trans Canada trail divides the two sections.

      The broken ladder bridge rung mentioned below has been replaced, probably at the trail day today. Thanks to the volunteers that attended!

      A plank on one of the bridges has split in two. Rest of the trail is running fine.
