West Vancouver, BC, Canada for mountain biking

Went to Vancouver for a few different outdoor excursions. Mountain was one of them.

The Seymour bike trail network has is pretty incredible. Just across the bay from Vancouver, we caught the Seabus and then rode to the trailhead (not recommended, too far on roads!)

Most trails are reachable from the lower parking lot just off Mount Seymour road, at the turn-off to the Northlands golf course. This area is just North of the Mall at the intersection of Mount Seymour Parkway. For those just beginning to tackle the North Shore, we recommend Bridle Path, and then exploring some of the lower trails, such as “Will’s way”, dumping you out on Hyannis Drive for the pavement ride back to your car, or, just take Bridle path back. Once you are comfortable with that, we recommend Ned’s Atomic Dustbin, or, Severed Dick.

We were too bagged to do beers after.

Insider Tip

Follow along Mt. Seymour Parkway, approx 5km, looking for Mt. Seymour Road (takes you up to the ski hill if you were to take it all the way). There is a mall – Northhlands mall, at the intersection, Just under a kilometer up Mt. Seymour Road, look for a turnoff on the left for “Northlands Golf Course”. That’s where the trail is!
