Bridal Path over to Bottletop

When you ride out to the powerlines on the Hyannis trail, you will cross the bridge at the powerlines and start a small climb, at the top of that climb about ~50', take a sharp right into a trail. Not a super obvious entrance, but a few feet in and will open up, has a few board walks right at ground level to start, then follow that trail as it climbs up and intersects Neds, maybe 100m.

At that intersection with Neds, cut straight across and you are riding Greenland. At the end of Greenland to the left is the climb up to Bottletop.

Thanks TRD, I'll look for that trail next time I'm over there.

Anything below the Mushroom parking lot is good to go. Only a light dusting on Incline/Corkscrew.

Was riding Salamander / Bridle this afternoon and a fellow rider warned me to keep my dog close as he noticed a pack of ~6 coyotes near the Cardiac Bypass / Rapid Transit / Bridle intersection.

If that rider is on the board maybe he can give a bit more input?

Keep an eye on your dogs out there, especially if they're little!

Boogieman was an awesome ride and in great condition, Thanks guys.

Boogieman to Empress is a classic North shore run. Wooden stunts n log rides, lots of rock, off camber exits for no reason at all, and pile rocks here locations which I never see anywhere else.. wicked lap. What was this 'bout dumbing down the shore again???

I'm happy to get outside and enjoy nature while I can, but I fear for the future of humanity

Are the new speed bumps on Empress Bypass actually meant to be speed bumps or was dainage installed in a rather haphazard manner and they're not actually really meant to be speed bumps?

not speed bumps but grade reversals to help divert water into the drains. An easy way to get water off the trail.

So I drove out from Chilliwack to find out for myself…
It is definitaly CLOSED. Closed signs on the way up and took a look for ourselves and there is still lots of snow and trees are down accross the trail. Impassable.
NED's down is good to go though!

Seymour was running great today, tons of riders and cars but only saw a couple of riders on the trails.

The nice weather has brought out the douchebags too, a couple of cars were broken into in the mushroom lot just before we arrived.
