The trails on winery hill, at the northern most end of Majura Pines, were constructed in early 2015 by professional trail builders, Jindabyne Landscaping, as part of the ACT government's redevelopment of the forest following the construction of Majura Parkway and extensive logging of the trees. The trails are intermediate cross country trails, suitable for most skill levels and enormous fun for all.

This one way loop starts where the XC loop ends. From Bogs and Logs continue straight over on to the tight windy Mr Squiggle. After a gentle descent, cross a fire road and keep left before starting the main climb; the completely redeveloped Batcave. This gradual bermed climb takes you to the top of the hill whilst offering glimpses of the fun to come.

Take a moment to get your breath back and enjoy the views of Mount Majura Winery, before setting off down the berms and jumps of Pinot Grinio. This leads straight in to Bombora that pops in, out and up the side of a wide creek. We challenge you not to turn right and ride straight back up and do it all again.
