Very fun trail that is good for developing riders but is pretty hectic for experienced riders.

This Trail needs some TLC. It's in a terrible state at the moment, covered in leaves and loose Rock. Certainly needs a good Weekend of Maintenance. Still probably the most fun Trail in Glenrock though.

There is no way this trail should be black. it's blue at the most. Be careful for snakes in the long grass sections.

Trail Kenny
Kenny’s still has some damage from the recent burst water mains. A few significant ruts and areas of erosion. Need to be careful and assess the best line to avoid going OTB.
