An adventure trail that’s mostly descending will take you on a journey through incredible forest scenery. It's packed full of features and is the perfect trail to chase your mates down. After all that descending the last 2km of trail follows the historic Briseis Water Race which was completed in 1902 and shows true Aussie engineering standing the test of time.

Accesible from Black Stump following the Snig Track climb

       I am looking forward to riding this new track over the next two weeks. Looks like a decent amount of drop over the 8km. I will be interested to see how well the "Briseis Water Race" came up.
