Length: 2.15 km
Direction: One way
Recommended: Experienced mountain bike riders with good skills.

Dry but very loose with all the leaf litter on the trail from the recent strong winds and lack of use.

 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!
