Cancer Tree (named after a massive old tree covered in lumps) is an old school hand cut trail that descends into and out of a small valley. It has two creek crossings, bridges, rollovers and a crap load of rocks and roots. The trail cuts through some of the thickest forest in Parklands as well.

       Really tight in the lower section, really boggy today, definitely not a flowy trail
