The Delta Watershed offers a wide variety of terrain, from wheelchair accessible trails to ultra technical down-hill sections. There's stuff here to test anyone's skill. It's like a huge playground for big kids.

Trail Directions
There are lots of access points to the Watershed. We usually park at the firehall on 64th Avenue, just west of Scott Road. The trails start right at the edge of the firehall parking lot. Expect to see plenty of mountain bikers once you get into the core of the watershed. This is a favourite hangout of the local riders. The area is fairly small, and before long you may find yourself going around in circles. Even so, every time we go to the Watershed we find something new. This is an awesome area for beginners and advanced riders alike. It's probably the best riding on the south side of the Fraser river.

Summary:
I used to ride these trails 4-5 times per week. But since Delta pushed through some walking trails 10 years ago the city has done little to maintain or improve the quality of anything in the park. The Shed bike club is an on-again-of-again club that really hasn't done much. The trails are totally over-ridden. What used to be sweet single-track is now so wide you could drive an ATV on most of them. The Gravity Bowl has totally eroded and is not the thrilling ride it used to be. Most of the stunts in the park have been abandoned and are now good for nothing but firewood. There's been some new building in there this year (2011). Frankly I think this park should be shut down to mountain biking because it's so far gone there's nothing that can be done to fix it. But it is a great place to go for Mother's pushing their babies in strollers!

Other recommended trails in the same area:
Not much south of the Fraser River. Anything worth riding is on Burke Mountain, Eagle Ridge, Burnaby Mountain or the North Shore.

Summary:
The Watershed is not very well mantained. it is starting to get a bit better but the shed bike club ends up destroying anything big that they havent built. there is a couple good trails know as the gully and bender, so far those are they only fast trails and large jumps.

Recommended Route:
The best trail in the watershed is the gully, its hard to explain how to get there but it has a pretty big wooden drop ramp with a small left hip dropping into two berms then into a big left hip between a couple trees.In the middle there is a large wood wallride/woodberm type thing flowing into a pretty big left hip then into a set of stepdowns known as the big and little gully jumps, and at the end there is a small right hip then a ladder to exit the trail.

Other recommended trails in the same area:
The Gully, Bender, The Goats

Summary:
its pretty beat up now but its the best in the area..ppl are building up new things..be sure to go to the djs inside..the easiest way to find them is go down the first trail u see after the fire hall..it should be right b4 the fence..go inthere then go down a little way untill u get to a sign and a garbage can turn right keep going and u cant miss them..when ur bored of them go to the last jump and go right and go up the trail untill u see some skinnies..then go back to the end of the djs and go straight and go down a little path till u see some new skinnies then go to the little jumps after them all the way to the end till you come to a big field with like benches and stuff.. go right down the gravel DONT GO DOWN THE HILL..take your first trail to the right and ull see the gravity bowl..then u can go past the gravity bowl and keep going the same direction as u came in the trail then go to a cliff and turn right go up a bit and u should see some stuff do that then come back to the gravity bowl and come out the entrance u came in and go across the field all the way up to a look over.. go up that trail right beside u and keep going its quite a ways in but u should eventually come to a little drop and its all down hill and theres some good jumps..pick a line a go..well not really a line but some stuff is side by side so u can pick something u wanna do..not that much in there but i think theres 3 jumps..ones too flat(on the left) the other if you go right is good and if u can get alot of speed go to the end and there should be a good jump...have fun im out

Summary:
the Shed has a lot of variety for different riders at all skill levels. The Gravity Bowl is probably the most popular spot. Lots of fun.
Since the Corp. of Delta has decided to do some upgrading to the Shed a club has been formed called The Shed Bike Club. It has been formed to give us riders a voice to be able to keep mountain biking alive in the Watershed.
Anyone who has been there this year will know that there has been construction and the elimination of some trails to the rider. The Club is trying to work with the Corp of Delta to keep the trails and stunts running and maintained.
Anyone who is interrested in joing this club can get your name on a list at:
Newton Rocky Cycle
Delta Shed Bike and Board
The Bike Zone and by e-mail to shedbikeclub@hotmail.com .
I would also like to add that I have trail maps available of the Watershed. You can download these maps from my personal photo album at http://community.webshots.com/album/19865818lvtqnMatrd
These are the best and only maps available that I'm aware of.
If you have any problems you can also e-mail me.
Thanx,
Conk!

Recommended Route:
I personally like to start from the bottom entrance on 64th ave. The ride back the the truck makes for a fast downhill ride starting from the fountain. Take the the trail from the fountain downhill all the way to the bottom. As you come to a main pathway there will be more. Take a rihgt on the main path and a quick left again to the first trail and keep going downhill. Reminder- From this main path the Corp. of Delta has posted it as a no bike trail as of this year. Bummer. Take it at your own risk. You'll know when you've reached the bottom when you encounter the new steps and the main bottom path. Take it to your vehicle.
