This is one of the classic North Shore "downhill trials" trail....Alot of drops, a few man made stunts..and definitely not for beginner out-of-town riders.

Customer Service

Take the gravel rode up then leave your brain at the trail entrance.

A Grousse Mountain Classic. One of the easier trails to be found on the mountain. Has some cool drops and stunts. The most notable feature is probably the "BIG STUPID" (its big and stupid).

Similar Products Used: GMG, Circus, Pink Starfish, Walk in the clouds, ..... there are tonnes o trails here.

Fun, Fun, fun, techinical, but most of it is ridable... sort of. As with all other reviews, BIG STUPID, SEMI-RETARDED or the MILKY WAY... all crazy, with semi being only slightly crazy.

Ladies Only is one of the best trail on Grouse. It is fun, not super technical, interesting, and has some good drop-offs.

Similar Products Used: Hey, people below get your facts straight and stop shooting off your mouths. A Shit Load of Nails and A Walk in the Clouds are the same trail. It's not the Milky Way, but the Milky Wade (named after Wade Simmons), and Severed Dick is on a Seymour Mountain. Mt. Fromme is where Ladies Only is, not Grouse Mountain. Funny how everyone names the hardest trails around as the recomended rides. Recomending Starfish, Circus, A Walk in the Clouds etc. is kinda pointless if the person doesn't know where Ladies is. Chances are that if they don't know Ladies, then there is no way in Hell that they're gonna be able to ride these other trails. Stuff like Espresso, Executioner, Pipeline, Oilcan, Seventh Secret and maybe Bookwus are probably more appropiate, not to mention good rides as well. Thanks for listening to me bitch!

I can honestly say, that even in the best conditions, that I have never cleaned this trail. It is a challenge from start to end. I enjoy riding this trail in the company of Knolly, Haruki, and Khoolhandz, simply to be amazed by their bike handling skills, and their complete lack of sense while riding. Although I rate this trail at it's highest, I have a lot to learn about this crazy 'Shore riding.

Along the Grouse Mountain access road, 150m past the 5th switchback the road makes a chicane type jog. Shortly after, the road widens, and it is here that the trail begins. The first part is actually quite pleasant, how ever that doesn't last long, as the terrain steepens quite a bit, and the stunts appear.
Again, the middle flattens out, but its full of ground laying bridges, and a wonderful ramp that I have yet ride over, without falling off first. The trail finishes with a few natual stunts (ie. a 3 foot drop of a chunk of rock), and then the big stupid granite near vertical portion that leaves the heart racing if done properly, or an extreme pain if not done correctly.

Similar Products Used: Pipeline is imediately right of Ladies Only, and it is recommended to those riders who are not quite up to full Shore skills. Its a trail even I can clean on a bad day.

It is a "DOWNHILL TRIALS" type trail, drops, ramps, teetertotters, bunch of man-made obstacles are found on this trail. Rain or shine it is in awesome condition thanks to Todd (Digger) Fiander. Lets all respect all the hard hours this man has put in keeping this trail in top form. Get out and help participate in trail maintenance!!:)

although i don't ride it once a week now, i sure did when i still lived in N. V.

ladies is pretty much the most well known, most ridden, most classic grouse trail on the shore. it's still a challenge to ride and i can seldom clean it, especially on wet days, digger has even put in some kick ass single track sections, so i'd have to say it's really the best all-round, all-weather trail, not as hard as some of the newer trails but still a good ride, especially if you're new to the shore

Similar Products Used: crickum-crankum, seventh secret, grannies, pipeline and all the other trails that digger built, but be warned they're tough, and difficult to find
