The "A-Line" here in Crete. Really fast and flowy with a lot of burms, jumps, wooden jumps and really steep in a couple parts. This place was an old testing range for the millitary here in Greece and the name comes from an old bazooka warhead planted in the ground in the middle of the trail.

Access Info

From the road to episkopi after the first big uphill when you leave the beach you go right toward the old mine. It sits right on the top of the hill.

 No one seems to have given this trail any love for a long time. The middle part is covered up by the town dump. There are still some jumps and drops but overall I’d pass on this place unless you’re already nearby for some other reason. Unless someone starts working on it again, it wouldn’t take much to bring it back to its former glory I think!

 Hi Richard you are right for this place i use to be one of the guys that have spent alot of time to build this track ..but thats the sad truth in Heraklio there are 5 guys that spend personal effort to build a trail and 50 that they dont move a rock ... but every one of them upload videos in youtube and pinkbike
