This trail was built by the NSMBA Shore Corps through Builder Academy practical training sessions. 4 sessions with an average of 10+ builders completed the trail over the course of 1 year. It was built to connect through to Rapid Transit and take uphill pressure off Salamander. Heading west, you can now climb AT turn L on RT and traverse the top of Salamander to the kiosk-no hassles mate

Previous to this trail being built people would often push their bike up the steep end of Applicator to make a loop of Rapid Transit. This new climb trail opens up more options!
