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.

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

Trail Rooty Ridge
Exposed roots in all directions downhill. Not recommended when wet! Otherwise a very good way to exercise the suspension.

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

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.
