Park at Bluff Recreation Site. Take the trail that crosses a small bridge leaving the parking lot. After the boardwalk, turn left. Stay left until you come to a forestry road. Left up the road. When you see an outhouse in the bushes on the left, turn left onto Long Way up. Follow me or spin the wheel to choose what trail you ride down. Take Long Way up the whole way. Right at the first, second and third junction. Take this meandering trail up for 1.5km. Long Way will eventually split into Upper Long Way or lead you across a bridge to Uptrack. Go left for more meandering. Go right for buns of steel. Cross the road again and link up to Uptrack. Keep going up. When you start going downhill for 20 metres, stay right at the junction for the first part of broken axe. You’re going to ride down Auntie Flo. From bottom of Broken Axe, turn left onto Four Horsemen. Make sure you go right at Auntie Flo.

Long Way up is slightly lower angle terrain but more rock and root technical features. Uptrack is steeper with one rooty section. Both will take you mid point of the bluff recreation trails. Broken Axe will take you to the top of the bluff

Trail Auntie Flo
Two trees across the left trail option (steep/straight) on upper anti flow. Largest is ~20cm where it crosses the trail.

Trail Auntie Flo
The lower section of Auntie Flo is named “Smoothie” on the wooden trail sign... not sure if Smoothie and Auntie Flo are mixed up on trail forks? At least on the top... I’m not sure which trail I’m riding?

We're sorry you feel that way, we are working to incorporate some of the old features alongside the new additions. Fall line is fun, but unfortunately water likes it as well!
