       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 ! ????

       Bottom half currently closed for logging. Top half still open and accessible by climbing and shuttles.

      Shred Kelly's offers fast flow alternative down to the new trailhead.

       Combine with Shred kellys for a super fun must do run. The jumps at the top are well built and spaced, berms are high and fast.
