BS is a descent only trail which winds its way through the trees from Larch Ridge and connects to Monticola shortly before the Cola Coaster. The trail has multiple lines that weave through the trees which create a different riding experience on each lap as you can add in jumps and stunts as they suit you. The trail is peppered with a couple mandatory wooden features and many optional jumps which combine for a fast and flowy descent. Watch for the sign and co-ordinate with riding partners in the loop-de-loop 2/3rd of the way down the trail for a unique trail riding experience

Access Info

Park at the Larch Ridge Trail Head - Ride out 1.3km on Larch Ridge Trail and watch for the trailhead on your right marking the entrance to BS

At the bottom of BS, ride out Monticola's Cola Coaster then ascend back to the parking lot on COG
