Really beautiful trail, with many rocky switchbacks, great views, rainforest sections as well as a pine forest flow trail, it has everything. That being said I had an ebike and I wouldn't have done it without one, and you can drive to the top of this trail, but seriously good if you want a bit of an adventure.

If you like climbs, yes this would be heaven. Goes through a variety of country, great views, good breeze, and a really fun little flow track in the middle on the good soil. But not a great way to simply just get to the top so you can start descending.

Suggest modifying this trail and the 'Trail 8 inside leg' trail such that inside leg is the normal trail and the old outside route is the extra trail. Most people ride inside leg for preference.

An amazing flow trail that lets you use gravitational forces for heaps of fun. Definitely do a few runs in a row!

Fast flowy trail that you would enjoy with supple suspension and great breaks. You would get fast on this trail with a few runs.

Loved this climb up, after the hurtle down to the valley after getting up route 6. Nothing massively hard, or steep, but your legs will know it at the end of the day!

After a few storms this week the trails are riding well. Rainforest trails may be slippery eg on the Link Trail. Not enough rain to make the creeks run, apart from the usual crossings on the town section of trails
