Oh, Old Buck. It's mostly a wide gravel access trail following a buried power cable straight up the hill. A few grade reversals were put in years back but it really hasn't lost much of it's grindy nature. However, if you're on the East side of Seymour, this is the most efficient way up. Riders will almost exclusively use this as a climb but it is a fully multi-use trail with lots of hikers and dog walkers. Although the trail continues to Mt Seymour Rd above the first switchback (and beyond for hikers), most riders will choose to take a left onto the Baden Powell and climb toward Pangor/Boogieman and the Severed/Adonis/Dale's area. The second left onto the powerline road also gains you access to Pingu.
