Old school, old heads, Old Chevy. The trail meanders up and down and around with great scenery in the larch trees.
After a sharp climb in (The Radiator) the trail rolls down the ridge line with Hill Rd way below - this is the Chassis.
This first section of Old Chevy really sums the trail up - a mix of climbs and fast flowing downhills. The last section - The Exhaust - is a ripper and by the end of it you have forgotten the steeper pinch climbs!

Just before you exit there is a gap jump into a G-out, with a faster singletrack option to the left of it.
Above the run into the jump and to the right, there is an alternative trail that is a little longer. It is also fast and flowy with a couple of sharp tricky corners thrown in to keep you on your game - nice berms at the start of this section. This merges with the original trail just before the exit.

There are a couple of other alternative lines - they all meet up eventually so you won't get lost, have an explore and check them out.

Part of this stand of forest has natural springs and so is protected from harvesting.
