Can be quite a challenging trail after being exposed to wet weather carving out some thin deep ruts. Picking the right line is the fun part. When dry this can run pretty fast with it being mostly downhill. When wet it can hold some pretty deep sticky puddles that can catch you out. It runs alongside the golf course. Great fun.

Access Info

Turn off the B3351 north using the gate off the road.

      Major encroachment by gorse and thorn bushes through the second and third section. Gloves are a must. Nice and dry though, and fast.

      Gorse and bracken are right on the trail edge, ready to scratch up any passing rider.

      Nice and dry and flowy, razer bushes are growing in the heat though so gloves and sleeves are a must as you get to the bottom of the golf course.
