Part of the original Swine Flu, you can still totally hit this up as part of your down back to Fairy Creek. More tight single track than the double-wide section that is now the main access route.

Access Info

Look for it as you hit a little gated section just before the final descent to the Visitor Centre trails. To do this you'll go straight instead of turning sharp left.

      This section is open, even though the old full Swine Flu climb is not. There is a new climb to the top though.
