Glider can be ridden in both directions and has some great features - berms, switchbacks, tight rocky section and rollovers. Most of the trail is easy 'green' trail riding with nice flow and some sections get quite fast which is a good reward for the minor, steady climb sections. The trail serves as an important connector from other Daisy Hill trails to the Wiry Panic/Stonehenge area near Ford Rd. It also delivers riders to the Quarry - a popular spot for all recreational users given it's now a lake.

N.B. this trail is a green trail, but for some difficult terrain and tight turns around the quarry section

(the trail has four parts divided by fire trails and one at the quarry turn-off)
