This is the high point of the DH trails at Tokai in altitude and difficulty. In other words its a long ride or push depending on the bike you bring. From the Level 5 jeep track that also takes you to "Cobra" the line drops away down a very steep rockery (read: nothing but rocks) . Although not long, this uber technical and very steep section has two tricky, rocky corners and an exit ramp that can either be rolled or gapped into the more serene territory below. This section earns its Double Black rating solely for the upper 50m. The lower two thirds is far gentler and you can relax a bit into some pleasant drops offs, fast berms and minor corners and rock gardens. A couple of small gap jumps shouldn't present too much of a challenge to properly equipped riders. Bring your DH bike or modern enduro/trail bike. Full face helmets are advisable.

Access Info

Take the jeep track to level 5 as if heading for "Cobra". The trail head for DH0 will appear on your right long before Cobra.
