This trail starts with a long climb (Cathedral Climb) to the lookout, utilising numerous climbing switchbacks. It then heads
down the hill (Buxton BOM) and the real fun begins with tight berms and lots of jumps. BEWARE of the gap jumps and don’t let your ambition get confused with your ability. Keep your speed in check. This trail rejoins Acheron Ridge just before the car park.
