Loved adding this to Manly Dam loop instead of downhill fire trail section. Lots of fun turns and wood features to enjoy on a fairly mild uphill.

Would never ride it downhill as it’s Uphill Only, but geez it’d be fun as a downhill!

Trail Olive Oyl
This is a very tight, twisting, gnarly little track. You'll need all the skills to stay on the bike.

This is a great track for all types of riders. Communication is key on this track as it’s very narrow. Great for young riders.

Super fun trail that is easy to include in the Manly dam loop. A few steep step ups but all good and has been nicely maintained. Super fun.

I Agree. Uphill only. I met 6 riders coming down today. It is a single track and you can't ride it both ways.
