A great XC-trail trail that winds its way through tall open eucalypt forest and dense fern gullies, up and down Forrest National Park for 5.5kms. This trail offers extended riding with numerous technical features and is a great ride. An all-mountain bike would love this trail as well. It descends then climbs then descends then climbs and so on.

Access Info

At the Forrest Trail Head ride down Third Time Lucky until you reach here.

      This trail has everything. Steep descents, pinch climbs, a grinding climb and flow. You feel like you are almost out, then you are back into it...
