    I continue on from the trail last week by head down Old Chevy in the Redwood Forest of Rotorua. Along the way I experience several forks and get myself turned around and lost as the sun starts setting and the rain starts falling. This mountain bike trail starts just left of the exit from Roller Coaster and ends on the main access road that, if you head left, ends up at the main car park.

    Roller Coaster in the Redwood Forest of Rotorua is smooth flow trail that, as one can expect from the name, has many ups and downs throughout its length. I only end up riding half of the trail as Pondy New, which I rode last week, intersects it at the half way point. It ends just near the start of Old Chevy that I will be riding next week.

    #trailpovguide provides a POV guide down Pondy New, which Split Enz flows straight into. This trail is all under forest cover and extremely smooth requiring only an XC to ride it. The official start of the trail actually requires you to ride unhill, but where Split Enz intersects results only the downhill portion of the #mountainbike trail. The trail ends right at the beginning of Roller Coaster.

    #trailpovguide provides a POV guide down the longest downhill trail in Rotorua: Split Enz. This flow trail is not technical and seems to go on forever, to the point that you may have to stop for a moment just to give your arms a break. Access to this #mountainbiking trail is via Time Warp which is accessible by riding the access road or Billy T till the end.

    #trailpovguide provides a POV guide up Time Warp in the Redwood Forest of Rotorua....as well as introducing myself and my biking background. Time Warp is the only way I know of to get to Split Enz and Frank N' Furter. This #mountainbiking or #gravelbiking trail is a steady climb along some wide easy singletrack. In order to get to this trail one needs to turn left after exiting Billy T and continue up the forestry road to the top of Moerangi Hill.

This 2km of quality flowing #mountainbiking trail through the forest, not suprisingly, has the most positive reviews on Trailforks. It also happens to be the best way to get to Split Enz. It starts after a short uphill climb from the shuttle bus drop-off area and ends far over by G Rock and the climb road to Time Warp.

These trails are smooth, hard packed and flow through the dense forest. They are also an enjoyable way to end a big day on the mountain and make your way over to Dragon's Tail to get back to the car.

The jumps on this #mountainbike trail are tamer than those on Little Red Riding Huck and are well sized and shaped for the trail speed.

This trail has several steep sections and drops and has the appearance of being deep in the jungle, making it a very engaging #mountainbiking trail.

    #trailpovguide provides a POV guide along an XC climb or descend trail on Burnaby Mountain: The North Rd Trail. This mountain biking trail either begins or ends at the mountain bike skills park and Dead Moped, depending on which way you ride this trail. It's an excellent way to climb up Burnaby Mountain without resorting to the boring Trans Canada Trail, or an excellent way to get back to the car when you exit Mel's for instance. Plus it's got some ladders and A-frames to keep it interested. I rode this #mountainbiking trail southward (down) and ended up on Jim's Jungle and Gaglardi Way at the base of the mountain. Alternatively, you could begin/end the trail at the North Road parking lot. Burnaby Mountain (SFU) is located in Burnaby, BC, Canada and about a 25 minute drive from downtown Vancouver.

    #trailpovguide provides a POV guide along a short but entertaining mountain biking trail on Burnaby Mountain: Naheeno Trail. Prior to this video I had never been #mountainbiking along Naheeno Trail, a gem in the Naheeno forest that runs parallel to upper Mel's Trail on Burnaby Mountain. It's a relatively flat trail with some skinnies and an A-frame to keep it interesting. This mountain bike trail starts a few meters after you enter Mel's and exits right before the first large bridge on Upper Mel's.

    #trailpovguide provides a POV guide down a short mountain biking trail on Burnaby Mountain: Uppercut. This enduro mountain bike trail is the continuation of Lower Gearjammer mountain biking trail, which I filmed earlier. The lowest part of Lower Gearjammer is very loose and badly kept and some online sources say it's actually permanently closed. Uppercut is a much more enjoyable #mountainbiking trail to ride instead, and exits right at the top of Lower Snake. There is an A-frame half-way down the the last section is smooth and fast!

It could easily be ridden on a cyclocross (CX) bike or gravel bike. It starts near the main intersection on Burnaby Mountain and ends at the intersection of the Water Main Trail and Mel's.

    #trailpovguide provides a POV guide down a secret short, steep enduro mountain biking trail on Burnaby Mountain. This 'Secret' mountain bike trail is well hidden and as a result many local riders don't even know about it. It is not perfectly manicured but a fun rip if you can find it. The various rocks and stumps are great if you want some air but be warned that many of the landings are flat. If you do decide to look for it, please be respectful of nature.

    #trailpovguide provides a POV guide along a well-known XC mountain biking trail on Burnaby Mountain: Mel's. Mel's is a great cross-country #mountainbiking , hiking or trail running trail. It has a gradual slope to it and a couple of hike-a-bike sections but overall an enjoyable ride. This trail could be ridden in either direction but I prefer going west to east. It starts near the SFU Terry Fox track in the middle of the university campus and ends part way up the Trans Canada trail. You could do this mountain bike trail on a hardtail or full-suspension, but the ideal bike would have about 110-150mm of travel. Burnaby Mountain (SFU) is located in Burnaby, BC, Canada and about a 25 minute drive from downtown Vancouver.

    #trailpovguide provides a POV guide to cyclocross (CX) by racing in Queen's Park CX. What is cyclocross? It's is the perfect blend of road and mountain biking, combining the fitness and technical skill requirements of each. A true cyclocross bike is a slightly beefed up road bike with a higher bottom bracket and knobby tires no wider than 33mm. However, many end up using bikes intended for #gravelbiking. This course is put on by #VCXC and provided a perfect amount of mud, speed, grass, dirt and technical. New Westminster is located in BC, Canada about a 30 minute drive from downtown Vancouver.

    #trailpov guides provides a POV guide down one of the well-known mountain biking trails on Burnaby Mountain: Nicoles, after heading down Poplar trail.
