I dunno if this is old or not, but it's not in the FAQ so here goes.
NOTE: this is quite well hidden, so pay attention!
Right at the beginning, after literally a couple of seconds, the fence on the right of the track will end and you will be able to go offroad and then onto the bridge which you can see overhead on the normal route. Follow it for a quicker rout to the cannon. --- At least Kyogre can actually edeguard. Unlike the other two water attacks in this game.
just before the 2 circles with daisy and luigi, there is a house and you can go up the stars and boost out the other side --- 95% of the population cannot do simple math. If you're one of the 10% that can, copy and paste this in your sig. pokemon pearl fc: 3007 5552 1162 Dan

That Maple Treeway shortcut is so well hidden. Nice find. Are there items up there normally? --- NOBZ WAZ EHR

There might be some item boxes on or before the shortcut, but I'm not sure. --- At least Kyogre can actually edeguard. Unlike the other two water attacks in this game.

There should be a whole topic dedicated to shortcuts. Also is anyone working on a guide? --- [ZF]Borowolf - (MKWii - 3179 - 6195 - 5736) http://s9.invisionfree.com/Zero_Faction/

On Mushroom Gorge you can use a boost off the left side of the track past the starting line to bounce across two shrooms to the wooden bridge, not actually that useful though

I think it's only faster for bikes to take that route. I can get 1 blue(sometimes 2 blue)flame boost and a red one before the cannon. --- Brawl FC:0817-3493-0643 (Slime)

I only found that Maple Treeway shortcut thanks to the Expert Staff Ghost. --- Mentions of Cloyster - 88 You sir, are the greatest poster to ever live. - BattatheBeast23 talking about me
