The Big One - a massive 6km descent from the Gully to the Ticket Box in Howman's Gap. A super fun trail, it takes riders along the top ride of the Bogong High Plains Road loaded with features that you can take as hard or easy as you like. Literally a non-stop rollercoaster of flowing berms, wide bridges and massive rollers. Try not to laugh out loud the first time you hit this

       Rode this yesterday - there are about 40 trees across the trail, and heaps of debris. Basically unridable until it is maintained. Don’t bother now.
