It's been a while since I've ridden here, but I had an old GPX file and thought it would be great to head back and ride here again.

Probably the best track in the area, a long, fast and clear route with a few jumps.

Trail Midden
This track is actually called Midden Track.
Upper Midden from the top of the decent near the finish of the Rob Roy Hill Climb down to the exit at the concrete brick robot man.
Lower midden from the concrete bricks all the way down to the exit onto Happy Valley Track.
It is named after the collection (midden) of scallop shells that the track runs over.
