Short singletrack trail up to, and back from Summit Road. A good option if you've not ridden hills before and also a favorite way to get a quick warm up before riding Greenwood.

Widening top entry and making first track division more clear. Will be removing tussocks as I descend.

Riding fine. Path is pretty benched into the grass making you have to ride it like a train on tracks.

 Plain link track used for instead of riding on the road. Just a narrow path worn into the open grass field. Could be fun coming down I guess but pretty plain.

 A good transition track for those only used to Bottle Lake or McLean. Very few rocks. Riding up will test your lungs. Riding down will get you used to looking ahead.

 The rangers have asked me to maintain this track so I'll be gradually widening it over the coming months. Please be mindful that this is a beginners or Green track and shared with walkers. Don't go using it as a race track, cutting corners or charging towards walkers. If you want to hoon there are plenty of Blue and Black tracks to ride.
