Flying Moa is an intermediate grade track, but quite a technical one as it twists and turns down through the beech forest from 850m to 600m.

      Slippery roots and muddy ruts - but loads of fun.

      Love this trail. A techy root fest with twists and turns. Plenty of opportunity to get your flow on but be challenged by the multitude of features.

      Probably shouldn't have done that in the wet.
      Take fresh brakes and a change of undies.
      Pretty tech and not much flow.
      A rewarding challenge but a bit of a job.

      I enjoyed this track. It has heaps of roots, but is not steep and has no exposure. A great track to practice technical skills with lower risk. With skill and fitness you could carry speed down this. Under native beech the whole way, so grippy soil and well-shaded.

      Really physical track to keep the speed, roots and tiny turn made it hard to enjoy!
