An old Tokai favourite, this mostly flat and tech rock filled trail is brimming with tricky corners and the odd rock roll and a few avoidable drops. If you are looking for flow don't look here, rather expect a trail to improve your skills or at the least expose the weaknesses in your arsenal. From the bottom it winds uphill on a sandy base and then the rocks and corners start. The first descent has two avoidable tricky rock drop offs. Then its proper rock gardens and a wooden bridge with a rock roll down a boulder. The rocks don't let up until around half way where you can expect a bit more climbing and some tech corners. If you can stay on your bike for the last right-hander, you deserve a badge. Go for it!

Be aware of riders coming from the opposite direction - dense vegetation obscures riders

A tech rock filled trail with tricky corners and a rock roll and a few avoidable drops. A place to improve your skills, not a flow trail and not...

Needs a few more runs to get familiar with. No flow in either direction.
