      The Mount Borah downhill descends from 900 metres down to 450 metres over 3.5km with a track filled with natural rock gardens, drop-offs, gap jumps, doubles, off camber and the section known as "Wallaby’s Chute”.

      The track is fast, flowy and full of natural obstacles . The track starts off on a gentle slope but then quickly becomes more gravity fed, high speed, with rock shelves, step downs, some sandy switchbacks, a tricky rock garden chute and some big jumps towards the bottom. There are A & B lines available right down the course, except down “Wallaby’s Chute” which is a gnarly rock drop that will thrill the pant’s off any rider.
      Primary Trail Type: All-Mountain & Downhill
      Shuttleable: YES
      Access Info:
      From Manilla (approx 10mins to Mt Borah), drive through town and then head north over the Namoi River Bridge. Turn left 200m after bridge into Boggabri Rd (you will see a paraglider graphic left pointer sign) Don't drive straight ahead to Barraba and Upper Manilla as directed by most Car GPS Navi units.
      Continue on for ~1km and just after Manilla River concrete bridge turn right into Wimbourne Rd (you will see a paraglider graphic right pointer sign). After 300m Wimbourne Rd has a T intersection where you continue to the right.
