    Dead End Loop begins at the end of Bob McIntosh Memorial trail in Squamish and ends at the beginning of Rock N' Roll (more like grind and groan).

    Hoods in the Woods, a blue trail featured in the BC Bike Race, is an awesome combination of features that keeps you entertained the entire way down. Some climbing to begin with, followed by rock slabs, fast and loose sections and finally awesome berms with so much flow. This trail begins up an access road from Power-Hoods or Powerhouse Plunge and ends out in the middle of nowhere requiring a decent ride back to civilization or your car. Squamish is located in BC, Canada about a 50 minute drive from downtown Vancouver.

    Just in time for the BC Bike Race I bring you Powerhouse Plunge, a classic Squamish black trail. I have also included the trails to get there including RIng Creek Rip and the Powerhouse Plunge Access trail, which are both smooth XC trails. Powerhouse Plunge itself features many boulders, ladders and switchbacks and is technical but not very steep. It's definitely not smooth, but lots of fun. It's doable on an XC bike but an enduro bike is recommended. Powerhouse Plunge ends about half way between Crumpet Woods and Quest University along a forestry access road. Squamish is located in BC, Canada about a 50 minute drive from downtown Vancouver.

    • technical rating: 1.5
    • distance: 1.1km
    Rollercoaster is featured in many bike races in Squamish and there's good reason. With its fast flowy natural and machined berms this trail is a lot of fun. There's also a sudden uphill that starts just around one of the corners, that gives this trail it's name. There are two entrances to this trail. For this ride I entered off Mashiter, rather than the steep uphill from the access road. The ending of the trail is just near the entrance to Lumberjack's on Perth Drive. Squamish is located in BC, Canada about a 50 minute drive from downtown Vancouver.

    Lumberjack's has been featured in many XC races, but this isn't just a boring flat smooth flow trail. Instead, this trail has some really good downhill sections and some technical pedally sections, making for a really enjoyable trail. This trail starts just at the top of Perth Drive at the exit of Rollercoaster, and ends on the forest service road much closer to Jack's. Squamish is located in BC, Canada about a 50 minute drive from downtown Vancouver.

    Angry Midget is located about a 4 min uphill ride from the normal Half Nelson entrance and is one absolutely awesome black in the area. It's got a few lips along the trail, some tight trees sections, and some fast flowing sections near the bottom. It also has two huge bridges, one that crosses Half Nelson, the other the climb trail. The exit from this trail is just up the access road from the exit from Half Nelson. Squamish is located in BC, Canada about a 50 minute drive from downtown Vancouver.

    Pseudo-Tsuga might just be the funnest blue trail in Squamish for those who can't jump. If it's not on your list of trails to ride, it should be! It is an absolutely awesome smooth berm trail that starts at the exit of Recycle, which I showed last week and ends by the main parking lot closest to Quest University. Squamish is located in BC, Canada about a 50 minute drive from downtown Vancouver.

    This beginner MTB trail in Squamish is over 2km of flowing berms. There are a couple of small rollers, but overall its just an easy roll to the bottom.

    The unfortunately named Man Boobs is a fun blue trail with a bunch of awesome smooth berms to begin with, followed by a non-challenging uphill section, and then some more berms.

    The extremely fun blue trail called Leave of Absense in Squamish, BC along with the way to get there down Jack's and up 50 Shades of Green. Throughout Leave of Absence trail are several black features including rock rolls, ladders and drops. Most features have optional easier lines so you can hit what you feel comfortable with.

    Brackentrail provides an excellent fun and fast exit from Jack's Trail or the forestry road leading from Perth Drive down to the Brackendale area of Squamish. This black trail has some optional hard and easy lines to make the cliff to the left less intimidating. Just be aware that the downhill after the ladder bridge always has loose rocks that cause your front wheel to wander at speed.

    • grade:

    • steep rating: -1.5
    • technical rating: 1.5
    • distance: 0.8km
    Asian Adonis is very similar to John Deer in terms of speed and skill level required, but it's a little more flowy with less small kickers and difficult features. In order to get to it you need to enter Severed D, then right right into C-Buster and finally the trail will naturally turn into Asian Adonis. Just take a map with you as the ending to this trail puts you in the middle of nowhere with many intersections. Mount Seymour is located in North Vancouver, BC, Canada and about a 25 minute drive from downtown Vancouver.

    Jack's trail is a mellow dual-direction XC mountain biking or gravel biking trail that is extremely well known not only because it is featured it many huge races including the BC Bike Race and Spakwus, but also because it connects to some of the best trails in Squamish including Rupert, Credit Line and Leave of Absence.

    Cardiac Bypass avoids the hike-a-bike section, and the downhill section, on Bridle Path on Mt Seymour.

    It's got flow, a huge steep ladder, mini jumps, technical bits, a rock roll...the list goes on. John Deer on the North Shore and the mini section down Deer John is absolutely awesome! and quite possibly my new favorite on Mount Seymour. It is not the most obvious to get to as you enter it from Severed D, but make sure to head down it if you enjoy a fun challenge. At the bottom you end up back on Bridle Path for an easy ride back home. Mount Seymour is located in North Vancouver, BC, Canada about a 25 minute drive from downtown Vancouver.

    Empress Bypass is the fastest and smoothest trail on Mount Seymour on the North Shore providing a welcome bypass from the huge steep rock roll on Empress. It's like A-line but without the huge jumps....just several sweeping berms along its entire length. It starts just off Bridle Path and ends on Old Buck very near the parking lot.

    Continuing on from last week, Pingu is another classic North Shore trail with drops, ladders and jumps. I absolutely love this trail! While you can avoid all the technical features, I wanted to try challenge myself by hitting as many features as possible.

    Welcome to the North Shore! My series starts with a personal favorite technical XC trail in North Vancouver called Bridle Path. It's got all the usual North Shore features, rocks, roots, log rides and ladders. It's a great trail to ride to work on your slow skills, instead of bombing down another flow trail or an excellent trail to end on after coming down one of the higher up trails. This trail is a little bit up and down and starts part way up Old Buck trail and ends at Hyannis Point. Mount Seymour is located in North Vancouver, BC, Canada about a 20-25min drive from downtown Vancouver.
