Lower section of Shore Play below Fern Trail. The area was approved for development in 2008. In Aug 2016 tree falling began and the trail was permanently closed.

The top section of Shore Play remains open.

Full of steep fall line pitches and technical features, it was typical of early trail development on Cypress. In particular we will miss the signature rock face big enough to see on Google Earth.

RIP Lower Shore Play.

Permanently closed in August, 2016.

Previously the trail was poachable. Below 1200' it's now unridable. Totally logged and prepped for house construction. RIP Lower Shore Play.
