Flywheel is a fun flowing trail, which has some built-up ramps, and some jumps at the top.
If you're riding Burke Mountain, it is a good ride to finish on.
Go to Port Coquitlam, turn on Coast Meridian Road, and go straight. Go up a long hill till you get to Harper road, and turn right onto Harper (a gravel road). Follow it till you get to a bend in the road and you will see an entrance to a trail on your right. Get on your bike and ride!!

UpsideChallenging, but nothing too difficult. Easily accessible. DownsideOvergrown. The ladders are in disrepair. Prickles are taking over the path. CommentDid this on a hardtail. Very good for all skill levels. Pretty easy to get to, but not terribly fast-flowing due to overgrowth.

UpsideUsed to be a nice flowy ride DownsideThis trail is currently in a terrible condition. All the ladder bridges and woodwork on the trail are completely falling apart. CommentI do not recommend riding this trail until it gets fixed up

CommentTrail has a lot of overgrowth and fallen trees onto the path. The first 500m is okay and meets up with lower Galloway but after that you have to start ducking trees and branches. I ended up turning around. Need to go in their with a chainsaw.

UpsideEasy... everyone can make it down on any bike, better people can do it with speed. DownsideThe use of an organic soil base causes lots of mudpits and erosion, especially in the middle portion: the swamp. The swamp is also home to very ricketey old bridges (not cedar) that aren't too smooth, but are not that challenging. CommentAs an addendum to the directions, once you go in the trail from the road you will be on Nectar Connector. After a 5 or so minute bike ride, you will cross a big creek on a bridge, ride 4m, then you will see a trail on your right, and a white flywheel nailed onto the tree.
If you have been riding Upper Galloway, you will exit onto Nectar Connectar right on the other side of the creek (from Flywheel). Turn left, take the bridge over, and you will be at Flywheel.
