One of the premium trails on offer at Plenty Gorge. It can be ridden both ways & overall is technically not difficult to ride with only a few pinch climbs & loose rock to contend with. The difficulty comes into play when you realise that you are riding along a narrow trail which a steep drop towards the river in some section. Ride the trail with care & respect. If you are not confident it is an easy trail to walk & enjoy the view.

This trail is unsanctioned, use at your own risk!
