       This is my favourite track at the you yangs.
      It has really awesome doubles and rock gardens with a really fast area down the bottom of the track.

       Loved it. First run at the you yangs. Nice flow and not that difficult to ride if you stay within your limits. The other black trails are a lot more technical
