Trail information (parking/ shuttle info)
Being a shuttle mountain as well as a place where riders of all levels can find trails that they enjoy makes Seymour a popular option and the parking lot at the top of CBC is often packed. If you’re shuttling, be aware that most trails end towards Parkgate Mall where Mount Seymour Parkway intersects Mount Seymour Road. If you’re shuttling Ned’s Atomic Dustbin you’ll need to park near the Superstore at the intersection of Seymour Boulevard and Mount Seymour Parkway, or it’ll be a long ride back to Parkgate. Be aware that lately the Superstore has posted signs around the edge of their lot near the gas station that display parking restrictions. This is where mountain bikers have usually parked. It might be a good idea to park on Seymour Blvd.
Trails (click on the trail for further info and photos)
Mushroom Trail runs from about halfway down Corkscrew to the start of Severed D. The top half is only ridden downhill by riders heading over to ride Ned’s or Dale’s while the bottom half is usually ridden uphill by riders who have started from the Old Buck parking lot and are also heading to Ned’s or Dale’s. The top half of the Mushroom trail is a fairly flat traverse, unfortunately as a result of erosion part of the trail has lost all its topsoil exposing the bedrock and piles of rocks. If you’re riding in the wet, there will also be plenty of water to go around. The bottom half isn’t ridden very often and is in much better shape.
