Trailhead sign is missing so can take a moment to work out which one it is if you're riding up from the south

Yep, a nice city view. Keep on the pedals to punch up the other end

It's a fun trail that's pretty raw with lose rock all over the place. I also don't think it deserves double black though. The steep little roll makes it a black diamond.

I found it easier than most of the black diamond trails I've ridden in Sydney.

This was an access trail, not a single track.
Even the satellite view indicates this.

This section of trail makes every second of climbing worthwhile.
Fast, flowing, great view (if you have the time to take it in).

Not ruined, it's great. As other comment, a little tougher than expected but worth a run.

Sorry, it wasn't the trailforks rating I was disputing, just the Stromo peoples rating. Given the difference between that and the double black diamond downhill in Issacs Ridge it makes no sense.

The sign to Dusty Critter is hidden behind trees and is easy to miss once you hit the bitumen path.
