One of the oldest trails on the mountain with a major overhaul in 2013/2014 still retains its technical nature with a little more flow. Used to access C Buster and John Deer, the trail starts with a steep and stepped chute and rock roll (this section can be bypassed via the new “Dickie” alternate), a flattish pumpy section then takes riders to the main descent just after the John Deer trail head. The trail gets steeper as it approaches the Good Sir Martin intersection then steeper still just after before it’s final flowy section to the exit onto Bridle Path. The trail includes a few skinnies all low to the ground, and several small rock rolls, some of which may be dropped, and a few wider ladder bridges.

The trail is popular with hikers and runners alike and mountain bikers should be prepared to expect foot traffic on the trail. The trail is downhill only for mountain bikers. Do not ride uphill.

Access Info

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

       Large tree fallen which they’ve decided to turn in to a feature. Breaks up the flow (for the time being)

       I’m mainly a mountain biker but today I went up hiking with my dog looking for my garmin I lost yesterday and getting way out of the way of the incoming bikers. To this guy that told me to get off the trail I say( and I do wish he reads this)
      GO « F » yourself!!! The only reason I said nothing to him today was because my son was with me. I love this trail and I also volunteered on it few years back. But remember riders, it’s not only for us bikers, hikers are allowed also.
      Cheers

       Seems like there is one a-hole in every crowd. Most bikers are not rude like the guy you mentioned. Hope you found your Garmin.
