trail.

Access Info

Accessed off the High View Lookout and exits at the 21st Street exit off the Upper Levels Highway.

If you park where many mountain bikers park for the trails on Cypress, opposite the municipal yards, you will have to travel back along 99 for a short while to get back to the turnoff to to Cypress Bowl, and, back to your car. So there is a lot of pavement to this ride if this trail is all you are doing. You will see plenty of other mountain bikers in the parking areas we've mentioned, and they'll tell you about the other trails on Cypress.

This trail is unsanctioned, use at your own risk!
