Trail Jumps Track
Really muddy. So slow rolling and pretty skatey. Two things you don't want on a juml trail. Some of the jumps are pretty ghetto.

More an advanced grade 4 than an intermediate trail. Would be good if some work could be done on it to make it more consistent with The Mistress which is a great trail. This trail is considerably more difficult than The Mistress even though that are graded the same.

Would be a fantastic track with a bit more work done on it. Needs some drainage put into wet areas and some berms built on more corners with a bit of metal so it can be riden in wet conditions as very slippery mud after rain. More advanced than intermediate but has great potential if MBO does some more work on it.

This track has now matured and bedded in since the first reviews. Its now well formed. Good flow with nice drops. roots give it some challege. A good 'warm-up' track to get your eye in.

Definitely not a track for those not comfy with steep corners... but honestly rewarding flow if you can keep control.

There has been a late course change for Stage 2. The Mrs is a bit sloppy in places and a couple of detours have been added to avoid the slop.

Stage 2 now as follows: The Mrs -> Treaty (not the previous bypass) -> The Mrs -> a B-line we've scratched in -> The Mrs -> Moustache Express -> Big Easy (up) -> The Plateau -> The Mistress -> Maverick Mikes.

Sounds confusing, but it's well taped and you won't get lost.

Made it to the plateau, gets slightly harder thanks to rooty steep corners. Basically a "hard" but always a place to put your foot down, hence downgraded to "intermediate"? I've ridden easier black diamonds!

Easy yet good fun - the terrain changes as you gain altitude. From soil/mud, to mildly rocky, to foresty/shingled, to packed soil. Watch out for bikes coming the other direction at speed esp at the blind corners. Awesome views.

Currently a track that's evolving (being finished). Very steep and very technical sometimes with large exposed roots. Ground is soft and no rocks (generally) [top bit, didn't realise it goes all the way down to the plateau]. An alternative to the other rocky downhill tracks.

There are 3-4 bits of this fast track that bumps your suspension. The first section starts from the top of signal hill and quickly becomes very steep loose rocky and needs commitment until it is crossed by an access road. The second bit is very easy, just hold on and feel the suspension work on very fast but gentle bumps until a plateau that you may join back on the big easy. The third section is hard - steep, at least 2 decent rock drops - then terminates to either a road to the big easy or you can join Magnatron.
