  • Global Ranking

This is where all the Scolty DH tracks start. This trail starts off with a small rock garden, before coming to a small (1 foot or so) drop. This drop can either be jumped or rolled. The trail then plunges into a fierce rock garden, which is the slowest section of the trail. Next comes a smooth, fast, slightly uphill section of trail, before a few multiple choice drops/roll downs Finnish the trail. This trail ends at a small wooden gate, after which there are half a dozen DH tracks to choose from, all with different trail features and gradients.

Access Info

Get to the top of Scolty hill. There are multiple routes up and all are signposted. The trail is on the east side of the hill, and starts off as two tracks which quickly merge into one.

frost has led to the trail becoming hard and compact. There are also a few small patches of ice on the trail.
