One of my favourite trails in the park. A great warm up before getting into the harder trails. Jumps are fun and the wooden features give a good mix.

Massive ruts around the berms. Jumps at the end were good. A kangaroo was in the middle of the trail

Not that hard. Fast enough, but is followed by a disgustingly large climb that makes riding it hard to justify

Nice flowy trail apart from a berm that disappears and chucks people, me in particular, into trees

Trail Outta Mutton
Best maintained trail in mount Gambier solely because no one rides it. Cool climb. Not a must do but still quite a decent trail.
