if you stay up on the left side of the river valley its mostly single track lots of roots and its not too long until you come down to a gravel path then you get to ewok forest there are many latter bridges and drops with lots of logs and some jumps.

Summary:
There's one entrance that starts with a 2ft drop...it's BADASS, you
get tons of speed. Just go down at top speed, but watch out for
the sharp, steep hill/corner. Keep going down and you'll come to
an area with a shitload of hills and drops...really good riding.
There's something for everyone, if you have a shit bike or
aren't a good rider just avoid the drops.

Recommended Route:
The park behind McNally school, just go behind and to the left of
the tennis courts and you'll see a few entrances.

Other recommended trails in the same area:
Start from Hawrelak Park and come towards this on the paved

Summary:
I haven't ridden a bike in about 16 years so I thought these trails were pretty fun for me. Nothing that I couldn't handle so I don't think you have to be an expert rider because I'm not. Found lots of individual, technical trails as well as some downhill paths. Met a couple of young kids (I'm an old kid) who said they make sure they hit this area whenever they can. I have a hardtail and had no problems.

Recommended Route:
New to Edmonton, but as I was exploring, I came up from the Riverside/valley(?) golf parking lot to a school (assume McNally) and went down a steep path behind the soccer net.

Other recommended trails in the same area:
Still exploring. I heard Trewilligar is good.

Summary:
Sadly, the Ewok forest is no more. I went through it today, and found that all the ladders, teeters, and everything else that was built in the area have been torn down. The city apparently really doesnt want anyone in there. They could have at least taken the remains out of there, instead of leaving all the logs around with nails sticking out.. a couple close calls today. The area remains, but as I said, there are no more ladders or anything to ride. As much as I'd like to go in there and rebuild things to ride, the city is only going to tear things down again. It's still a nice area to ride though.. just not a "north shore" setup. Rumor has it that there are a few new hidden areas that only a select few know of. I guess we'll have to see if that's true.

Recommended Route:
Cant say, but most people on here have already given enough details to find it.

Other recommended trails in the same area:
Millcreek Ravine, Forest Heights area (around Ewok Forest)
