This trail ends at the railroad track. It is possible to ride back to town on the rock covered beach.

Stupidly fast blue run, watch out for fist sized rocks rolling around otherwise let off the brakes and pray that nothing runs out in front of you!

Pretty awesome trail, some really loose parts on the steeper sections around the middle of the run. Big steep slab and some really abrupt tight turns. Arm pump guaranteed!

Super dusty and loose when dry, mandatory small jumps that can be rolled.

Trail Porcupine
Fun trail, some optional super techy black lines but all have ride arounds. Watch for loose dirt on some of the more open downhill sections when dry.

There's now an ascent trail so you don't have to bike up the road. Starts just above the carpark
