Trail Directions
My details are a little sketchy, but heres what I know. We start In Port Coquitlam, and work our way to Coquitlam center. (If you live around here you know what I mean)Just after you pass by the coquitlam center (It will be on your right as you pass) You take a right turn and there are some MASSIVE hills! It takes us about 30 - 40 minutes to climb our way to the top, you should reach westwood plateux. Once we're around the top of it, we climb up mountain hills, slightly techinal. Finally, once you pass ALL the hills, you reach a place where you can ride Randys trail. Or you can continue a different way and ride a slightly easier trail, the Academy trail. Basically all of randys is downhill, making it very challenging. Once you pass randys you reach a trail called B&A. You should see a sign on a tree saying B&A, dedicated to some people, maybe Brian and something.... Anyway once we're through B&A we reach a construction area and ride until we reach the road. And we come out in port moody, located by a starbucks! Good to get a nice hot chocolate after this ride on a cold day! Then you continue to ride until your back to coquitlam center and home. Its takes several hours from start to finish.

Summary:
There are many trails at Westwood Plateau, Coquitlam. You may find some intermediate trials surrounding the area, and there are advance trials too.

Watch for gravels trails, and few bikers are putting extra careful while passing those trails.

Recommended Route:
academy trail, wall trail, gutter/randy's trail, lungbuster, massage therapy, sidewinder, dentist, decapitator, greaser, 4 lost souls.

Summary:
Here's the deal. All the stunts on the B&A got cut down months ago, before the new school was built. So all that's left there is a swamp. People built a new, all natural trail there that's more like the end of the Wall trail. Also, they've been clearcutting just above the new elementary school for new houses, so the end of the wall trail doesn't exist anymore anyway. Be warned: don't go down it unless you want to ride back up. Randy's is still there as far as I know, you just have to take the path to the right that drops you on the road after, instead of going down more trail. Don't even bother taking the new trail where B&A used to start, it's not worth it, and you'll have to climb out again. Also, the whole powerline trail except the Wall climb has been smoothed out for some reason. It's a lot less technical now, and a LOT less rocky. This is a good thing.

Recommended Route:
go to the end of panorama, before it heads into the woods, and climb the road or the gravel trail beside it if you need shade. Climb/walk the Wall. Head up the powerline on your left, for a long long way

Other recommended trails in the same area:
Gotta head up the mountain further. The dentist, the chiropractor, and so on.

Summary:
Randys is fun downhill with only two killer drops. BnA is all man made. Their is a huge tetor totor and an eightfooter. Their are small easier ways to go around the huge things. For examle... Their is a 4 ft right beside the 8 ft. Preaty short.. but worth it!!

Recommended Route:
Go to Bramble wood school and then go left up the hill for about two min. You will reach a gate. GO to your right up a long gravel road. when you reach the top keep gowning up until you reach the powerline road.turn left and climb it for a while. you will climb up through a wooded area and then back out into the open.Then you will go into a short flat area on your left will be the bottom of the dentist. you go back out and climb three hills with two swichbacks. When you get to the top of that hill keep going for about twenty five feet and on your left will be a large opening. Fallow that up a short hill and then keep your eye out for a small opening on your right. And YOU ARE THEIR!!

Other recommended trails in the same area:
the wall, 4 lost souls, fat bastard, Acadamy, dentist, orthadontist, decapitator, power line plunge, Gutter slide show, Brad and Dad, backyard trial,
