The Club’s brief for the extensive rebuild of the trail was to retain the shape, length and the style of the original as much as possible. While following the original line it now features a lot more berms, rollers and jumps (all safely table-topped) while still retaining the flowing nature of the original.

The trail is very popular with riders of all abilities. The jumps are designed to be safe to roll over at slow speed, but as rider's speed increases so does their ability to clear the tabletops.
