Jumping Jack follows the old downhill trail built in 2013 by some of our young lads who wanted a trail of berms and jumps.

Accessed from the start of Mr Twister it sweeps its way down the hill beside Zig Zag Road with big corners and jumps. All the jumps in the top section have been filled in and are table tops, from the drop down to the bridge it is all new trail, built in 2016 by Southstar Trails.

Fun little doubles and berms all the way to its exit on to the road make this trail a must for anyone who like their wheels up. None of the jumps are nasty and can all be cleared with a moderate trail speed, keep on your toes though as the gap over the drain is now back and can sneak up on you, there is an alternative line around it if you aren't keen.
