Seemingly never-ending berms take you from the start of the trail near Mount Paris Dam down to join into the Dambusters descent.
The Atlas mine was one of Derby's famed tin mines, the relics of which still can be found hidden beneath the moss and ferns. it is an all out wilderness trail, mostly descending. One of the few point-to-point trails in the network that can be accessed by vehicle at the top. Atlas is a white-knuckle roller coaster ride that will appeal to more experienced riders. The boulders and mossy Myrtle Beech forests along the way create an experience not to be missed.
