Hand made, natural flowy trail without too many steep or overly techy sections. Easily one of the most fun trails in the Tweed Valley.

For some reason riders have been trying to put shortcuts in, straightening out the amazing flowy corners - not cool.

Access Info

Just down the road from where the uplift buses turn. Two trails run side by side, Angry Sheep is the one to the left (the other is Green Wing).

This trail is unsanctioned, use at your own risk!
