      Very challenging. Probably shouldn’t be graded blue tbh.

      Beautiful track but no flow at all and not smooth, it is nearly a trial zone!

       For one of the first purpose built trails in the national parks this trail is a real disappointment if you are into trails with flow.

      If you like techy trails with no flow and off camber cornering you are in heaven!

       Yep this trail is 100% rock scrambling with some excellent roll-down's and super tricky off camber and/or technical traverses. No flow and all hard work and thats why it's superb for what it is!
      Try to master it by not putting a foot down. I find that with speed comes something almost resembling Flow but not in a Rotoua kind of way.

       Glad they have have upgraded this to a black diamond trail...whilst a lot of it is maybe blue the entrance to the trail is definitely black and I have seen several riders go over the bars not reading the trail properly and going in too hot at the top. certainly no flow but heaps of fun if you like techy ups and downs
