Boogyman happens to be one of the more challenging trails in the Seymour trail network on the North Shore of Vancouver. You find Boogyman by taking Old Buck up from the lower Parking lot that most people shuttle or ride from (at the turn-off to Northlands golf course - see Seymour Bike Network for directions from Vancouver).
Once you ride the access trail ? old Buck ? up from the lower lot, you reach the T intersection at the top of Old Buck (it gets really steep at the top, you'll know you are there because you'll want to vomit on the nearby rocks), then go left up Baden-Powell (a fairly wide jeep trail really) and continue riding until you go past the trail called Pangor (but before Severed Dick). In fact it is just past Pangor, also a fun trail.
See our GPS track and 3D map to be exact. If you own an inexpensive hand-held GPS unit, you can locate the trailhead easily, otherwise it is easy to get confused between the trails that jump off Baden-Powell. The area is very popular however, and chances are you'll bump into someone either at a trailhead or in the parking lot below that you can ask. Boogyman is a very enjoyable trail for advanced riders, with some big log rides, big rock faces, and the trail seems longer than some of the others on Seymour, particularly longer than Pangor or Severed. If you shuttle up to the upper Parking lot, cross the road and enter the trails in behind the concrete barrier on the right, you will immediately find ?Corkscrew? on the left, and follow this down to the Baden-Powell trail, turn left and descend Baden_powell until you reach the entrance to Boogyman (really the opposite of coming up from Old Buck and the lower lot). You'll know you are on boogyman when you see the Hamburglur nailed up about mid-way down the trail. If you miss the trail and go down Pangor or Severed Dick, don't worry, these are great trails that dump out below on the Bridle Path, that you can follow left back to the Parking lot.

UpsideNice trail full of drops, ladders, a-frames, hucks, etc. It has everything and can be enjoyed by almost any level of rider.
DownsideThe last section is for advanced riders only. Take the Pangor exit for an easier, and still enjoyable, finish.
CommentWho doesn't like this trail? The rock face section at the end (and the huck) are extreme, but the rest of the trail is great. Challenges any level of rider.

UpsideAs an intermediate rider I still find this trail challenging, good practice for log and ladder rides. A tip for those intermediates who find the end of boogieman hard, you know those incredible steep rock faces after the big sky bridge? Well, after the sky bridge, you hike to the top of that hill and most people rest up there. If you look to the left of where the trail goes you see a small trail, follow that up the hill and you encounter the parallel trail know as Pangor. From here it's a much easier and enjoyable ride out to the bottom than trying to hike my bike down impossible (seemingly) rock faces. One day I'll ride those rocks :)
