This DH track is coveted by locals and maintained by a dedicated few who frequent the track, mostly every weekend and afternoons. It's got it all with fast and steep, smooth high berms, rough and rooted technical, big gaps, high drops, some roller-coaster berms, and big rocks that are sometimes like boulders that can fly up at any time. One of the best shuttled DH run in Cairns.Trail first blazed in 1876.
