The recommended climbing route to the Hero trail head. Please note, Up And At 'Em, Up DJ and Hades are all one-direction climbing trails. Caros is bi-directional. A similar route that uses Grevids instead of Caros is also possible.

For those looking to continue to climb to the launch, you can either ride around the loop road, or alternatively, use the back road that runs behind the Hero trail head. This road is closed to vehicle traffic, but rejoins the loop road higher up. Please note, bikes riding up this back route will be riding against the traffic when you rejoin the loop road. Please we wary of vehicles approaching in the opposite direction and keep left.

An absolute blast to climb on an eMTB, where you can whizz round the bends in fine style.

Fine for riding, no issues but several puddles and muddy spots on the track. Nothing you can’t ride right through!
