The trail flows nicely from Chipline/Tunnel of Love and is an easy trail with only one slightly rocky gentle descent. A popular trail at Daisy Hill as it helps connect riders from Chipline to Ripley's and beyond. A couple of nice berms will allow beginners to improve their cornering skills. The local TrailCare group plan on adding some technical features which may see this trail reclassified as 'blue'.

Access Info

       Nice track flows in from Chipline.. bit more technical but a newbie can do easily if oacing yourself. Just be aware of the hilly ride back up fire trail to 5 ways is STEEP for a few hundred metres.

       Koala has had some work recently to smooth out the rutted out sections. Fast and Furious! Best ridden from Five Ways.

       There are some features on Koala as of July 2019. Obviously built by the type of people that ride enduro bikes and wear full face helmets around Daisy, so not ideal. There’s what’s meant to be a little jump out of a left-hand switch back, watch out for it, it’s deadly.
