Summary:
The next part is alot of fun as you go up and down and descend a couple of rooty steep sections. After this trail morphs into a narrow singletrack with steep downs. This is as close to skiing as it gets on two wheels. Lots of fun. Near bottom a sharp switchback (stay on the very right) gets you to a small chute that kicks you out on the Fisherman's trail. Go right to get to end of Riverside Drive. Go left if you like fishing or swimming. I think the proper name of this trail is "Bottletop" - not ...cap

Recommended Route:
Go up Berkley in North Van till you get to the end. Take a left turn on Hyannis and park at the end of the street. This is the Baden Powell entrance. Continue on this for about 1 km. Resist temptation after 500meters to turn left on a wooden bridge. Continue Right up hill. Keep going up until powerline. A bridge has now been built to help you avoid getting wet by crossing the river. Go up and enter woods on right side. You will find more people exiting here than entering as its the spew-out point for the bottom of Ned's Atomic Dustbin. Go up 100 meters and then go left. A few hunderd meters of this have recently been improved with bridges built over the muck and filth. If you go to the extreme right over the worst mudpit a teeter-totter has been built. At the end of this section you intersect an old logging road. Turn sharp Right and continue on for about 200 meters. Turn left up an embankment. This gets you to the top of the ridge. Continue straight on - avoid temptation to veer left off this (back to powerlines).
