Slytherin (Grade 2+ - Beginner-Intermediate)

This trail continues left down Wakari Creek from the Redwood Loop to the bottom trail hub which is near the dip in Wakari Road. Most of the trail is Grade 2 level, but some of the corners get more challenging towards the bottom of the track. From the bottom hub, cross the bridge over Wakari Creek and climb up Syltherin back to the carpark. Remember to duck as you go under a large fallen tree and if you have good balance, there is a log ride near the bottom of the trail.

 Mainly narrow single track descent with switchbacks towards the end, taking you to the start of Weir 2 climb or an easy gradient climb back to the carpark.
