Located 25 minutes South of Nowra, just 5 minutes from Superbowl.

Approximately 6.5km in length, this course offers some superb flowing singletrack with short technical sections. There are some short sharp climbs, followed by slightly longer climbs and a couple of short twisty downhill sections to break up the climbs. This trail is another popular feature on the SCUM annual XC event calendar plus our Flow X Staged XC events.

Single Speeders try cross training, bring the bike with gears
