Also, a section of this trail goes through Gilberston Gully, an area that is not supported as a mountain biking area. It would be really great if this section could be diverted to the road. Sorry to be a buzz kill, but there is extremely sensitive local native vegetation in this area and damage has been caused by trail building in the past (twice since the beginning of 2022).

Awesome trail, smooth and flowy for the most part. Berms are awesome to ride and the ride out is what you would expect following such a descent. Ridden lots of other trails and this one is unique.

A short but fun downhill trail with a few good jumps along the way.

With a bit of confidence, quite manageable on a CX; only one particular berm that I can never seem to nail. The worst part is the fact you have to climb back out afterwards

If you're travelling West, parts of this track are unridable until around Marri Track, then it's all good.

Disclaimer: This map is not very accurate in terms of actual physical trails and requires you to use the Heysen and Yurrebilla Trails, which you are not allowed to ride on. Using a Garmin 510, I loaded the map onto it and attempted to follow the path as it had been designed. I found however that it often was incorrect of the lay out and sent me up the wrong path, then stirred me towards a non existence path. That said, this map is good for a general idea of where to ride but more research will need to be done to plan a route that is actually accurate and doesn't involve hiking trails.

Hey @OwenCav, this route was initially a concept plan for some trail development and wasn't supposed to be public. Apologies!
Now being edited to reflect existing tracks and trails
