that's crazy...  can't you just walk around the bridge.   I'll just climb my bike up the hiking trail.

Riding up the Perimeter Trail from Taylor Creek Place would be easier, I think.

So are people still riding Seymour given the bear situation? or is part of the mountain closed?

See Trailforks for the list of closed trails, with a note on each one for the reasons. Thanks for giving Bruno some space and respecting the closures

Given the repeated sightings of a black bear on the western flank of Mount Seymour, and his interest in mountain bikers, we're asking people to choose a different spot to ride for a bit here. This bear is accustomed to people, and needs some space during this pre-winter period if he's going to survive his biggest threat; humans. He has most recently been sighted in the area between the top of Hyannis Drive, and the top of TNT; please see Trailforks for the area we're asking that riders avoid. We'll keep people updated via social media and Trailforks as the situation evolves. Please message us, and North Shore Black Bear Society with any sightings. For more info on how to behave and safely coexist with these awesome creatures, please have a look at: or ask one of our trail builders, we just did a training session with the society!
