Grade 4. Length 1.2km. Built in 2007 by James Dodds, Rob Metz and Mark Upshall. It has 45 small to medium sized jumps to improve your hucking skills..

Loads of small to medium sized jumps, all jumps can be rolled over, no gaps
There are lines that avoid the technical bits if you need an out. It is, without doubt, one of the better trails in the forest due to sheer fun factor. I say get on the shuttle and give it a smack.
