The most downhill of the three Danimal sections, but still requiring some pedalling, Danimal North starts from Stonebridge Drive and twists through the woods incorporating tight corners, wooden bridges, small drops, long root sections, and rock faces.

Some recent tree thinning has opened the first hundred metres of trail.

Access Info

Follow Stonebridge Drive until you cross the bridge over Scotia Creek, there will be a two large granite plinths on the right side of the road marked "Trail". The first is straight down access road, the second is Danimal North. There will be a black-diamond trail sign in the trees at the entrance.
