A wonderful hike on shared mountain bike trails through the forest.

Description

This is what I call the "pay off" when hiking up the back side of the mountain. First there are many trails to choose from as the mountain bikers have carved out a lot of interesting trails. You do have to watch for rocks, roots, and debris.

The trails are very popular, and you can see horse riders, hikers, runners and mountain bikers out here all in one day. Everyone so far has been very friendly and respectful of each other. Also there are many natural and man-made jumps which are fun to hike over (however I never get any "air," just fall back to earth like a rock!)

At the bottom, you pop out of the forest onto a plateau where, on a clear day, you can see the Fraser River and also the city of Maple Ridge. After that, it's just a stream crossing, some loose rocks and you meet up with the main Bear Ridge trail again.
