If you are a beginner or do not do jumps, then this is not for you. There are three jumps in the top section, you then go up and over a hedge, then off a drop off. You then have another small jump into a partly bermed corner. Then a sharp right before a pond. Then down two more drops, over a table top and down a short rut section to the road. Hard on the breaks to avoid the gorse and drop. All this in about 40 seconds! Loads of fun, lots going on, but you need to know what you are doing.

 Sorry, when adding this trail I must have ticked the wrong box! This is a forestry red trail or black - not a proline as stated above. I have made an edit, I hope it is approved soon to rectify the mistake.

 Turns out that if there are jumps on the trail, it has to be a 'proline' orange. I would not say it was really a pro standard trail - I am no pro, but that said, only ride this if you know what you are doing. Still think it should be a red or black!

 Rebuilt the first jump today, so much faster on the down ramp and loads more air! Also added a berm in the second section to help with the turn by the pond. Great day!

 Nice to see something local, Good on you guys.
Far more than I can get over but I'll have a look next time I wobble that direction, might be a single jump or two I can practice on.

Theres a small jump area at Carn Brea on the Carnkie side that could do with this sort of work.

 For CornishCactus - Thanks for the comment, I know about the place in Carnkie, we have done a little building there before. The winter weather has not been kind to it, but we are planning to do a little revamp soon! See you on the trail.

 If that means you don't need to jump the berm and end up in the trees that'd be great Big Grin

 I will let our chief digger know! But I know what you mean, I have ended up in there too - especially when you start sliding on the wet mossy grass!

 A little jump practice there today, went really well. Also got some good times on the full run!
