      The Mount Borah downhill descends from 900 metres down to 450 metres over 3.5km with a track filled with natural rock gardens, drop-offs, gap jumps, doubles, off camber and the section known as "Wallaby’s Chute”.

      The track is fast, flowy and full of natural obstacles . The track starts off on a gentle slope but then quickly becomes more gravity fed, high speed, with rock shelves, step downs, some sandy switchbacks, a tricky rock garden chute and some big jumps towards the bottom. There are A & B lines available right down the course, except down “Wallaby’s Chute” which is a gnarly rock drop that will thrill the pant’s off any rider.
      Primary Trail Type: All-Mountain & Downhill
      Shuttleable: YES
      Access Info:
      From Manilla (approx 10mins to Mt Borah), drive through town and then head north over the Namoi River Bridge. Turn left 200m after bridge into Boggabri Rd (you will see a paraglider graphic left pointer sign) Don't drive straight ahead to Barraba and Upper Manilla as directed by most Car GPS Navi units.
      Continue on for ~1km and just after Manilla River concrete bridge turn right into Wimbourne Rd (you will see a paraglider graphic right pointer sign). After 300m Wimbourne Rd has a T intersection where you continue to the right.
      Continue on for ~11kms (its gravel after 6kms). There are two big creek dips as you travel. Just after the 2nd big dip (gully crossing) at 11kms turn right into Manilla Paragliding sign posted driveway.
      NOTE: Mt Borah access road is 50m further along Wimbourne Rd on left.
