Slower, technical decent to test your balance and your handling in tight, rocky turns. Includes multiple rock gardens and rocky step downs.
Top section is downhill only and has zero B lines - if you struggle to ride the qualifier rocky feature at the top of trail then you'll have difficulty completing this trail.
Bottom section is two-way and does have some B-lines to avoid some of the very difficult rock gardens.

Access Info

Top section is one-way, downhill only. Access from Iron Bark hub, which is the junction with Beefwood and The Long Way.
Bottom section is two-way and is accessible via junction with Whiptail, or if climbing, via entry off Klewarra Boulevard behind Riverside Ridge housing estate.
