Described as mostly blue with a couple 'black diamond' moves, this is primarily a downhill XC trail complete with climbs, some pedalling and a downhill section at the end with rock faces, berms, some high speed and even an optional drop. Going through some stunningly lush micro valleys, this trail was primarily built with efforts by the NSMBA. Continue straight across Bridle Path into the High School League trail, another NSMBA project, to feel the full power of the FLOW

The name is a combination in tribute to the Trails Forever Fund, from which funding was derived to complete the project, and the utilization of existing portions of Aftertaste.

       I'm new to the shore, but this trail was so hard for a blue. Even compared to some other blues in the area.

       You're not the only one who thinks that. Last summer, there was a piece of tape on the entrance sign, right under the word "Harder", that said "...than any other blue trail". Call it navy blue.

       Good to know I'm not the only one Smile The trail looks a lot more mellow in that video from 2014 too.

       Was just up there yesterday and it had a black diamond on the sign. They must have changed it quite recently.

       This is a good low elevation winter track, that's about it. Otherwise, boring pedal with only a few fun moves.

       Such a good trail. Has the most diversity of the trails I routinely ride on the shore. Mixed technical XC and all mountain. It’s a blast through beautiful forest. I would say a must ride after Dale’s, in addition to Pangor my other favourite on Seymour

       Forever After is my favorite trail on Seymour! I like how it's mostly downhill with a few XC sections in between. It makes it seem a loong ride! I think it deserves the black rating. It's harder than other black ones like Corkskrew in my opinion.

       Great trail. Nice ride from 2nd switchback parking lot from Corkscrew to Mushroom to Dales to Forever. Yes, probably deserves the black - a few spots are a little tricky if you are going slower (I'm sure the faster just float over this rough stuff). Not a flashy trail but still a good ride.

       Nice conditions today. Good grip on the rocks. Just a few puddles.
