Trails similar to Fisherman ?

Hi all, brand new on this board, is there trails that are similar to fisherman trail ? doesn't necessarily have to be on the North Shore, any where in Vancouver is fine, but I just need something in the lines of fisherman trails that is pretty flat and a good distance, nothing like Bridal path, seymour mountain, or 7 secrets and bobsled and stuff, I have tried those and some of it is way too advanced for me, any help would be greatly appreciated. cheers. Ed

if you like fishermans, also go for a ride up the demo forest paved road - Seymour Valley Trailway - 10K up the mountains, great views, up and downy hills and fully paved. quite a nice ride.

Seymour Valley Trailway is asphalt pavement, but really nice ride. At the end of Fisherman's, Spur 4 is a gravel road heading north.

beware - you'll be in the bush quite a distance. Watch out you don't get stuck in the dark!

another good beginner spot is the South Surrey Bike Park. There is the BLT (beginner loop trail) which is a windy, smooth gravel/dirt singletrack that loops around the park. You can venture into the more technical xc singletrack trails that are within the loop as you wish.

you may also want to give buntzen lake a try. you can bike on one side of the lake along gravel paths. there is a network of gravel paths that bring you out to belcarra as well that are bike friendly.
