Closest thing to a downhill trail. An old corduroy road that turns into a creek in the winter makes Ned's able to accommodate a lot of traffic without significant erosion.

A great high-speed rush of adrenaline. If you are sitting at home and want to go for a great ride, come to Ned's. It is very versatile, and even a novice rider can ride most of it but really slowly. A good rider can do everything at about 30 km/h.

      Trail is closed. Please stay off this trail. It is an active construction zone, please use one of the many open trails instead of Ned’s.

      trail is closed at the bottom due to construction. so presumably closed at the top, too! NSMBA indicated not too long ago that some changes were going to made, i hope to hell it isn't turned into another Upper Dales.... Ned's is an old school classic.

      This is a trail that makes you feel good and I smile when riding it. Was a fairly wet ride which is how I hear it's best to ride it in.

      My favorite trail. Technical, rocky and fast. Only one little climb. A perfect DH trail.
      Warning, you may finish with arm pump.

      One of my favourite trails out there. All weather, well armoured, and tucked into a particularly beautiful part of the forest. Chunder and flow all at the same time. Different feel from other North Shore trails. A hidden gem!

      I rode Ned's for the first time today. Really rough and rugged and facing downhill, few drops, no big danger, long and really fast with no stop, a demanding experience. This surely makes it something unique!

      Garbage found on the trail by the last steep wood roll. Remember to take it all out with you and not leave it for the next rider.

      Much more fun in the wet than in the dry. Water turns the rim-deep marbles into a much firmer trail bed. Give Ned's a rip on a rainy day.

      most trails on shore are technical rocky trails that are slower steeper or more dificult, which is fun! But Neds is fun because its also fast.
