No trespassing signs were placed at various locations across the mountain in October 2016. After communicating with the landowner, the NSMBA has advised the community that the trails will remain open for riding despite the signs. For more info visit: nsmba.ca/content/2016-10_cm…

Description

From the Power Line and the New Severed Entrance, cross the Baden Powell Trail to the Severed D Trailhead that has a large sign posted on it. Be aware that this trail is also popular for hiking, and is sometimes called the Good Samaritan.

After crossing the Baden Powell, a series of steps leads into a steep rock roll and across a bridge. Pump your way through the next section of trail; a few optional skinnies can add a little more spice to your ride. The trail then points downhill a little more sharply - some rowdy natural lines offer opportunities for catching a little air. After crossing the new Seymour climbing routes (Penny Lane / Good Sir Martin), stay straight for the rough steep chute with a couple manditory hucks, or choose the smoother rider around. The trail finishes with more pump-track flow bringing you back to Bridle Path.

This trail is steep and has lots of drops and technical sections. Being a rider from the center of the US that predominately rides flowing singletrack, this trail pushed me to my absolute limits, and we had to walk a few sections. It's well worth the difficult journey to this trail, however. Once it was over, this trail had me feeling accomplished and humbled at the same time.
