Nice single track trail down in the riverine. twists and turns with views of the river below. a good workout for those willing to push it. Can be ridden in both directions giving a totally different feel. if it has been wet stay off, as the mud is really bad.

Access Info

Part of the bigger Fig Loop route. can be accessed from Zulu Croc and ridden as an out and back.
