A 3Rivers Trails Permit is required to access this route. See the 3 Rivers Trails website for permit details.

Suitable for moderate to fit riders and moderately technical riders. Some quite technical sections particularly on the climb. Oxwagon begins with a taxing climb before reaching the top of the mountain from which one has a 360 degree of the surrounding area. Riders who made the climb are then rewarded with a 5 km single track downhill taking them back home. Rocks, jumps and loose corners on the way down so be careful. .

Awesome trail, top part was closed due to rain and maintenance but Grant and the team have created an amazing trail here. Cool flowing single track and some challenging switchbacks uphill. Definitely will be back. Dam busters is a must
