The 2016 Dunners Summer Series kicks off on the Redwoods/Wakari Creek trails. There are two timed segments:

Stage 1: Skid Track to Redwood Loop (Down) to Slytherin (Down) (124 m descending in 1.3 km)
Starts out wide-open on the skid track before passing right of the log at the top hub and dropping into a bermy section through the Redwoods and on to narrower single track alongside Wakari Creek. Remember to duck as you go under the large fallen tree and, to shave valuable seconds, hit the log ride near the bottom of the trail.

Stage 2: Skid Track to Holler Coaster to Lower Rooty Ridge (124 m descending in 1.1 km)
Starts out again on the wide-open skid track, this time going left of the log at the top hub into twisty bermy trail with a few exposed roots and small rollable jumps to keep things interesting.

Keep an eye on the Dunners Summer Series Facebook Page for updates and more info.

Trail Weir Two
Some tight switchbacks and narrow gaps between trees - barely wider than handlebars. Easy gradient.

Really good ride. In the wet it stays underneath the thick forest canopy so an easy climb regardless of the weather. We'll worth it!

Switchbacks to take you to the bottom.

Top half is a switchback descent with some exposed roots but high berms. Watch out for the big log (can roll over). Lower half consist of a series of narrow steep descent/steep ascent combo - carry just enough speed to get back up before the next one. No escape routes - unless the gully is considered as one.

If you climbed Weir 2 this takes you straight to the "top hub".

A technical tight switchback climb with some exposed roots. Gradient is easy.

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.

It may rate green, but easily the most fun bit of the forest - fast switchback downhill with high berms. I have a mate to claims he can [nearly] do it with no brakes.

Narrow switchback single track with trees either side, easy gradient climb. Very addictive because of where it leads to.
