From the trailhead, the track runs downhill towards the creek with some fast bermed corners. As the trail flattens out, it crosses over the creek with a short bridge (which is wide enough to walk over if you're not confident about riding it). A short climb over some rutted sections is followed by another fast, flowing downhill heading back toward the starting point.

At the end of the downhill section, the trail leads to a sharp right-hand turn and starts heading uphill. A bailout point is available by cutting left onto the fire road if necessary. The first part of this climb is fairly mild but there's a small log obstacle (about 5-10cm high, easy to roll over with a little bit of speed) with no ride-around. Near the end of this climb is a right-hand turn followed by another higher log obstacle.

The trail then leads downhill again before a couple of tight hairpin turns lead you back uphill and over another log obstacle with a gentle approach and downslope. The trail alternates between short climbs and downhill sections as you approach the tip, then turns around and leads down the fenceline back towards the trailhead.

A short pump section leads into a small stepdown jump with a ride-around line available before spitting you out onto a fireroad that leads back towards the start of the trail. At the gap in the fence, you have the option of climbing to Forks and Spoons or other trails on the south side of the park, taking Belly's Berms then continuing onto Dragons Tail/Omya Way, or doing another loop.
