    Grouse (top 20m) + District of North Vancouver

Contains optional TTFs, steep rough terrain and moderately steep natural TTFs. Quite technical. Definitely very different from the new school trails and a step up in difficulty as well. It is well maintained and can be ridden with a decent amount of speed. A good introduction to the more challenging old-school trails.

Access Info

Accessed off Mtn Hwy past the 5th switchback at the large clearing about 20 meters
past Ladies Only.

Running great right now, the new wood on the lower section is a fun addition. Thank you builders for the repair work that is apparent in a few...

Trail crew was able to finish a much needed section that during the wet conditions was at best bad... Also tighten line and added vegetation.

 "Considered one of the easier North Shore trails". Maybe 10-15 years ago...
