This is the main up track to get to the easier Million $ trails that are on the top of a hill at the northern end of the MTB park. It starts on the main gravel road with a short steep run-up and then climbs with a few undulations around the western side of the hill. It gets progressively steeper towards the end of the trail and you are doing well to be still riding when you get to the top.

Keep an eye out for folk coming down the trail when they shouldn't be as it is meant to be one way up. However, it is the easiest way down for riders not confident in doing the down tracks off the top (that are a lot more technical) and they have been up on the top having fun on the easy Million $ loops.
