Shotgun is the mountain bikers home trail for the Maple Ridge Woodlot area, pretty much dropping you at your car door. It's mellow, smooth, flowy and natural, a good first ride if you haven't ridden the area before. From Hoots it's worth the short climb back up, but it's a natural downhill finish for Bloggy Style, Snakes and Ladders, and Lower Toadstool.

      reporter Pine cones are attacking! Watch out for these little buggers. Saw a rider almost get taken outwhen a tire flicked one, haphazardly, into the air.

       Trail fairies replaced the up and down on the big rock at lower Shotgun. Small drainage project and re opened the trail to the roll.

       New dirt work above and below the big rock is very soft due to all the heavy rain and will take some time to pack in and remediate. Please be patient.
