A great high-speed rush of adrenaline. If you are sitting at home and want to go for a great ride, come to Ned's. It is very versatile, and even a novice rider can ride most of it but really slowly. A good rider can do everything at about 30 km/h.

If you go slowly, watch out; you may get run down by out of control bombers!

Directions:

Right near the mushroom parking lot on Mt. Seymour. Just follow the people since it starts right at the road. You basically cross the road and enter the trail just opposite and over the concrete road barrier. To get to the parking lot itself, it's up Mt. Seymour (as if you were going to the ski hill) and, after a number of switchbacks, you'll see the parking lot on the right. Others ride up Old Buck, and then continue on past the power lines and straight up that rocky gully trail (that no one rides down). That'll get you there too. Or hang out at the bottom Seymour parking lot and catch a shuttle ride. Or offer one. Please see this trail entry for the 'tour' of Seymour which has all the trailheads GPS'd out, and how to connect to the other trails like Corkscrew/Pingu.

Try going down Corkscrew, and then taking the cut-off to the right instead of going down the rock wall stairs :-(), pictures courtesy of Todd Davidson.

Downside Missing the turn on the bottom log ride and falling 8 feet onto your head.. :( ouch Comment The First trail I ever rode Since MTN biking was developed. I gre up on the north shore, specifically at the base of Seymor on Hamber pl. Was there Before Safeway and Parkgate Village showed up. There used to be wicked riding on the lower part of Seymour before the development, riding creek beds and tight single track trails with Chazz, Dewy, Paul Brodie and others!!! Then front suspension came out... the Rock Shox Judy... My parents wouldnt bite, and could bo longer ride my Norco Bigfoot with the Big Boys...

There's been a noticeable increase in erosion over the winter, possible from water, possibly from the trail being ridden in the wet. I know the NSMBA has plans to work on this trail this summer, so let's get a big work crew onto it when the time comes.

Half way down the trail, look back up the hill. A brand spanking new technical trail seems to be in the making, lots of steep ramps and skinny log riding! It's still being built, but it looks like beautiful work.

Intermediate trail with lots of room for improvement. Challenging
Comment Been riding seriously for 8 months and found it do-able but definitely not easy!!

Take the main Hyannis trail near the corners of Hyannis Drive and Hyannis Pl. Turn right and follow the Bridal Trail through to its end for some cross country thrills. A few tricky root sections when wet. Climb left up the steep and gravelly Old Buck Trail. Just after the second bridge, around the time your lungs are about to give up, turn left up the hill on the Baden Powell trail, then right across the power lines on the Cabin Trail, obvious by all the loose rocks. From there you can drop into Neds, or a number of other trails further along. At the bottom of Neds, Back at the Powerlines trail, turn left for a short way, before dropping back to your starting point down the Hyannis Trail.
