The Dead Moped is a fun trail to ride. The singletrack is great. Climbs and descents with a couple of steep sections but with a lot of logs and roots on the trail. Also there are a few switchbacks that you can practice on. You can get some nice speed on this trail. Really there is a dead moped on this trail.
I generally ride this trail from the south to north. A lot of plank work on this trail to get you over some always wet sections of the trail. The trail winds its way through the bush at mainly level but with one quick climb. Only 3 structures to speak of and one is definitely the main feature. The first one you come across is a small A-frame to get you over a fallen log or you could ride over the lower part of it. Next up is the feature structure an elevated plank bridge for the sake of elevation. It isn't too high and the is definitely not a skinny. A piece to practice on. The last is basically at the near end of the trail, a plank ramp down before you take a left and climb up back towards the Trans Canada, near the powerlines entrance.
A really nice trail and can be ridden in both directions.
