Extra jumps and drops that can catch you off guard

Rode the challenge block of trails today, all in good order and fun to ride. We did take the wrong turn where trails cross so deep idea to do it again
. Average G3 track ride.

Rode this track with wife on our way back to the car park. Maybe it was because we had knocked out nearly 40kms on other tracks but I wouldn't call this track fast and flowey through its length as over the years the base soil has worn down exposing a very root exposed track. It is in good order but in places quite knarly which could catch a rider out. Still challenging and enjoyable as a G3 track

Nice climb uphill, not many roots at all, just a steady climb up. Good for Grade 2 who want to try a Grade 3

Great length and variety on this trail. Some nice flowy short downhill sections and short climbs as well. Flat overall though, and a real labyrinth of a section on the last 1/3 through the redwood trees.

Trail The Tickler
I really enjoyed the top(downhill) section of the tickler. After about 2.5-3 minutes or so the trail starts to flatten out in sections meaning you need to get those legs pumping again. Felt a bit tedious after 5 hours of riding.Would be a good ride if you still had ample energy in the tank or where after a quick fix
