Description

If ridden on their own, both Bobsled and Floppy Bunny are very short laps that don't even qualify as a proper mountain bike ride.

However, if you combine both of these trails into a double loop, they can create a fantastic easily-accessible ride on Mount Fromme.

As an added bonus, these are two of the easier trails on the mountain, meaning you won't have to risk life and limb to get your mountain bike kicks.

This easy access and low technicality level make these two of the most popular trails in North Vancouver. Bobsled is the easier of the two trails, so most people ride it first.

If you are an intermediate rider, this is a good trail to help you dip your toes into North Shore Mountain Biking. Bobsled begins just up the main climbing road from the primary Mount Fromme trailhead.

As you might imagine, it's a flowy downhill trail without much technical challenge.

There are quite a few flowy berms and some rollers, but there's not even much in the way of jumps on this trail.

You can possibly catch some small amounts of air off of a few features, but it's modest at best.

There are also some strange rooty sections that are out of character for flow trails but definitely in character for the North Shore. As far as flow trails go, Bobsled honestly isn't all that spectacular.

You'll find way better flow trails in Squamish, and even a few sections on Seymour.

Or, for an even better downhill, pedal back up and try Floppy Bunny. Unlike Bobsled, Floppy Bunny does get a black diamond rating, although some local riders will argue that it's a light black diamond.

Regardless of the rating, for advanced mountain bikers, Floppy Bunny provides a substantially more entertaining ride than Bobsled.

You'll find some fantastic hits and features on this North Shore-style flow trail.

Most of the corners have berms to help keep the speed high, but you'll still have to negotiate some rocky, technical sections in between the berms...

it is the North Shore, after all. Floppy Bunny includes a few great senders for some fun air.

There's one or two big wooden drops, as well as a big roller drop feature at the top, which can be bypassed.

The big wooden roller drop at the top is actually the most technical feature on the entire trail.

If it looks intimidating, take the alternative easier entrance, and you'll still likely enjoy the rest of the features lower down.
