A lesser known trail in the Lower Seymour Conservation area - accessible from a couple of points and can be done in either direction.
On the day that i did this trip i started at the Riverside Drive entrance to LSCR and headed along the Fisherman's trail to a point past the second or Mystery creek sign - you see a fairly defined trail on your right - if you come to Twin bridges you have gone too far - just turn around and in a minute or too you should see the trail on your left - follow it up - this is Bottle Top ridge - it is marked on the entrance map to the LSCR - it does a nice loop and passes a couple of small lakes - pass the lake - the trail split a little but in both cases you will end up coming out on the power line - to return to the start - head down the power line to the first trail on your left - this is the Mystery Creek trail - follow it downhill to the Fishermen's trail and back to your start at Riverside drive.
It is also possible to reach this trail from the trails in the Mushroom parking area as well.
It can be biked in either direction but it will be a smoother downhill ride if you do the trail as described here - It was not a nice weather day so the photos are all that great.
#1 - drive or ride to the top of Riverside Drive in North Vancouver
#2 - Park at LSCR Rice Lake parking area and ride or walk down the Twin Bridges trail and then follow the route as described.
#3 - park at the Mushroom Trail Parking area on Mt eymour - check the map and proceed.

UpsideThis is a great ending to Neds if you don't mind a short climb up. More interesting than Switchbacks, (Mystery Trail)which I use as an up to loop back to Seymour prking, just turn right at the bottom of Neds and go about 25yrds. It's on the left and climbs up to a flat area, fade to the right and it'll be there. DownsideAlthough someone's been doing some great work on this trail it's pretty thin and will erode quickly with any amount of skidding. CommentCheck your speed!!
