Truly one of the most spectacular trails I've ever ridden. And the descent is a blast too!

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!

Fun, flow line with some small jumps. Brake early or not at all - brake chatter can be bad on berms sometimes

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