A470 Line is an out and out blast, starting out with tight wooded singletrack it bursts into the open and is packed with rollers and different jump combinations. Tabletops, step-ups, step-downs and even some larger hip jump 'booters', it’s the trail for all riders wanting to get some airtime without having to step into the realms of the expert lines.
