 The trails have been changed and its no longer possible to ride as listed. You can no longer ascent triggerhappy. The bottom part is closed and it now joins the woolybutt single-track for the finish.
The resort says to get back to village you need to ride Corn Hill road which them means you miss medussa, misty twisty and clancys run
If you've got an ebike (or happy to push your bike a couple of klm) you can try riding up the woolybutt firetrail from the road intersection (under no circumstances ride up the woolybutt single trail and burms) but its steep and very loose.

 Its a shame because this loop was actually better than Epic when I rode that a few years back. They're redoing the last section of epic (opens 2023) so that might be even better now too (though you need a shuttle back to the village)
