Super fun and flowy section of trail that has great descents and strenuous climbs. This trail has a ton of vertical per mile, which is harder to come by in the Bella-Vista area. The miles will feel longer in the Down Under. Follow your trail and keep on shredding

       Did this one clockwise from the parking area by cunningham. It has a very intense startoff but some climbing after that. Quite a bit of climbing but some really fun downhill parts as well. I would imagine it might be more fun the other way but I'll let you know next time. Great workout.

       Start from the Red, not the green to avoid 3 miles of steep incline. Whoops, great trail.

       She's a beaut, another great BVille trail. Did it CW, but looks equally fun in both directions.

       Nice trek today on the Down Under Trail. The 5 miles was a good mix of rolling hills with some decent climbing and descends. With all the rocks it was nice to have trekking poles for the climbs and descends. I recommend this trail for folks that want to have a nice 2 hour hike that starts and ends at the same place with a good loop. I was disappointed not to see any kangaroos...Ha...Ha...

       After riding a bunch of times, definitely flows better and more fun counterclockwise. Add in an out n back stretch going west on Tunnel Vision to add miles and a few more fun/fast sections of trail!
