The "Hippy - Lower" is a fun trail full of berms and easy drops that gets faster and more flowy the further down you get. There is a section in the middle that gets a bit muddy in wet weather - but this should get rectified in 2018. Brilliant in dry weather, but don't ignore the "Hippy - Mid" and "Hippy -Upper" above it which make the full Hippy circa 900m. In 2018 look for the addition of a new top section called the "High Hippy" which will extend the Hippy - Upper even higher up the mountain, even though it will require a hike...

Access Info
