Locals’ Guide to North Shore Rides

Gear Pro Reviews
Sample trail descriptions describe the character of the trail. Didn’t know there was a Greenland? Buy the book!


The “Locals’ Guide” also contains suggested ride descriptions ie. routes recommended as starting points for exploration by Wade and Sharon. Often you might not know that there are ways to link trails in the system so that they logically flow. Or you might not know that “Sticks and Stones” rides more downhill one way and uphill another. Or you might not know that “Dirty Diapers” is a nice variation to ‘Neds”. Or you might be a tourist who wants the one must-do shuttle run. Or even seasoned locals might not have heard of trails such as “Tall Cans”“Greenland”“SGS” or “Pull Tab”. The Locals’ Guide won’t give you every possible detail, but it will go a long way to letting you learn what is out there and start you on the baseline of exploring and finding out these gems for yourself.


The Richard Juryn trail is part of the xc trail system in the Seymour Demonstration Forest.
