Terrific new descent at Mystic filled with many features and jumps of all sizes. Most can be rolled over or have a B-line but highly recommend inspecting all of them first as some can be quite daunting initially.

Access Info

Trail starts at Shuttle turnaround area (widened fire road). Can also be accessed from other downhill trails which start at the summit.

 Possibly the greatest flow trail i have ever riden in my life , thank you to Blue Dirt for the shuttles and to the many friendly riders I met today , had an awesome time shredding and definitely worth the long haul from the Hunter Valley. Surely i’ll be back here soon ! ????
