The Woodlot mountain bike trails are a sanctuary for those living in the Maple Ridge area. This well built group of trails showcase a little of the old-school and new-school riding types. The trails are scattered off of a main logging road that cleared a part of the forest for newer developments. Trails at the Woodlot are rider built and maintained. They stay in good shape for the most part because they don't get a lot of traffic and you must pedal up to the top (no shuttles ).

Starting from the parking area you'll climb Dog Shit Hill, a rocky, sloppy, steep climb that leads you to the climbing road. Climb the road past some steep sections and stay right following until you reach the clear cut. Take a left at the first road leading up, and Toadstool starts right there. 

The trail starts in the clearing but quickly jets into the trees for some fast flying action. The trail flows well through the forest and over some great terrain. There are some optional features, but it consists mostly of dirt trail and a few technical sections. Lower Toadstool is just that, the same trail in the same style just on the lower side of a new road that has been built. Toadstool ends at an access trail crossing, and the Bloggy Style entrance is a quick jog to the right. More fast, flowy trail through beautiful forest, this track connects Toadstool with Shotgun. Near the bottom of the mountain Shotgun begins to flatten out and open up, allowing you to pick one of many lines to the bottom and out to the parking lot.

This run is a lot of fun, but it is really just a warm up for additional Woodlot laps.
