A predominantly downhill flowing trail with lots of berms and a smooth surface thats fun for all the family. Running from the summit of the park this trail has has a few incarnations over the years. The top section was rebuilt over the old Number 8 Wire trail at the start of 2018 by Trailpro connecting into the rest of the trail that was re-worked in 2017 by Southstar trails. The berms and rollers make for great times and make About Time a great trail to get those skills dialled in on. There is even a bridge thrown into the mix to keep you on your toes the whole way down to where it meets Ice Breaker.

Access Info

Accessed from the Summit Hub, The trail starts right from the top of the park, just after the intersection with Ewok Rd there is another entry but it's more fun to ride from the start.
