“If you're looking for something a little more tame than Severed D, Asian Adonis is a great option!”
— Jeff Nelson
Asian Adonis is great technical, yet 100% rideable trail. This is a great option for folks looking for an easier trail than Severed D
. We, for example, could ride all of this trail where as we had to walk 10 to 15 percent of Severed D
Asian Adonis runs parallel to Severed D
until it heads west and bisects C-Buster
. The trailhead is a bit tricky to find, but as you as head down Severed D
from Baden Powell Trail
, turn right onto C-Buster
. You'll notice a man-made cut up log between 2 trees (this is Severed D
) there is a fork off to the right. From C-Buster
, look for a fork to the left, where Asian Adonis breaks off.
As for this trail specifically, its recently been worked over and was still technical yet flowed well. There are several sharp switchbacks, a few medium sized drops, and several roots. This is still definitely a solid technical ride bordering on the intermediate/difficult range for North Shore Trails.
