This is where the wolf really bares its teeth. A demanding, technical trail for expert riders, the black route has challenging rock features, sizeable drop-offs, boulder fields and rock slabs – with no ‘chicken run’ by-passes. You’ll need plenty of skill, a high-end machine, and helmet, gloves, elbow and knee protection for this route.

 VERY rocky. Great fun, but some serious skill is required to handle this route properly. It's very difficult, and possibly dangerous at places, for people who aren't able to handle large rocks and boulders, large drop offs and extremely technical sections (me hahaha). I would also recommend taking a decent break at the top before beginning the run.

 Great trail really throws you in at the deep end with a technical rock slab/garden you need some skill to ride this trail but an absolute gem of a trail
