Catch your breath and admire the stunning panoramic views before you begin the fast descent of Eas Dubh (Ee-as Doo), the ‘Black Waterfall’. Take on the Kelpie Staircase, a steep stone-pitched section that’s not for the faint-hearted! Glimpse the waterfall on your left as you dance through the tight switchbacks of the Birling Bogills then fire round to the start of the Cannonball Run.

Starts at the top of the singletrack Pipedream section. You can also reach this point by forest road. See the trail map for details. Singletrack descent. Includes drop-off stone features and bermed corners.
