One of the oldest trails on Mt Seymour, the trail has seen a major overhaul thanks to the NSMBA TAP program and it need be mentioned, this re-birth was only made possible with thanks to the hard work from Martin & Penny. The boggy swamp traverse across the top has now become a fast & flowy pump track that puts you into a rowdy descent. Includes a few skinnies all low to the ground, and several small rock rolls, some of which may be dropped. Lower Severed (after the Shorn turn off) has a very steep section with some black/double black optional lines. If you wish to avoid the technical descent, turn off at CBuster to take a cruisy descent on Asian Adonis or bail out lower down at Shorn Scrotum to connect to CBuster. Unfortunately, both options means you'll miss the happy ending on Severed, one of the trails' best parts.

Access Info

The trailhead is accessed either from the Baden Powell or via the New Severed Entrance from the powerlines. Severed ends at Bridle Path.

Not a huge issue but about half way down someone must have got caught on a dead tree on the right side of the trail. Dislodged it and makes you...
