Technical trail containing many steep natural and man-made TTFs. The TTFs are very skinny and challenging. Not a beginner trail.

Digger is a steep, old school, techy, VERY slow and precise trail. If you want fast flow with jumps and drops, this totally is not the trail for you. If you like precise, start and stop, slow trials-like technical, hit it Avoid taking new riders and those without a good rear wheel sense down it.

Access Info

Accessed off Baden Powell, exciting at Braemar road close to the powerlines.
