A narrow section of single track through dense trees with a steep exit for a more exiting way to connect to View Trail.

Be aware this is part of the downhill trail network from the ski hill, so if you ride up it you may encounter body-armoured uses on 10" travel bikes doing 80kph.

Access Info

Heading downhill on Megahurts, keep your eyes peeled on the right for the turning shortly after you leave View Trail.
