Back Door takes you from Slicker Feta to the bottom carpark. The new Back Door replaced the old Back Door which was destroyed in logging in 2015. The new track does not follow any of the old track but is completely new, built by D&E Track and Trail. The track is intermediate, majorly downhill but does have a small climb.

Access Info

Ride down Slicka Feta and turn right onto Back Door just before the end of the track.
