Machine built by Joy Ride Bike Parks in 2015, Upper Dale's offers park-style fast, flowy berms. For a more challenging technical trail experience, turn right at the end of the trail to continue onto [L=https://www.trailforks.com/trails/dale-s-trail-213/] Dale's Trail[L], a black-rated classic technical North Shore trail. Alternatively, turn left onto [L=https://www.trailforks.com/trails/dale-s-connector-3825/] Dale's Connector[L], an old logging skid road, to return to Mushroom Trail. This blue-rated bidirectional connector allows trail users to access the rest of the Seymour trail network.

       I saw 2 guys climbing this trail on a busy Sunday morning. Climbing this trail, especially at busy times, is very dangerous. People coming down are going fast and don't expect climbers.
