Another of Nelsons stand-out trails and the quickest descent from Fringed Hill through native beech forest. The Nelson Mountain Bike Club holds one of its DH rounds here, however AM bikes are equally at home on this fun fast boss of a trail!

Access Info

Fringed Hill climb, off the Tantragee Road following signs for the summit. FDH trail start is found at the skid site below the summit gained by continuing straight on at the last switchback on the climb up. Alternatively climb the 'classic' from Brook Street.
