Sweet singletrack, smooth and flowing with very little pedalling required.
A few natural doubles and lines that you'll enjoy if you remember them coming up on subsequent rides.
Good design that is able to be ridden slowly by those who are newer to riding or less confident in their abilities, while being lots of fun for faster riders.

The style of the trail fits well with the nature of riding Billy T first, then G Rock, then into Rollercoaster and Moonshine trails.

       Bottom is now no longer a track. Had to ride through ruts and mud caused by logging.
