       A challenging 33km single track from the Larch Hills Chalet. On Aug 8 a few trees down. Mix of trails conditions: flowing, rock gardens, mature forest, new plantations, , great views, short ugly climbs, short FSR sections and finally the switchbacks - some 30 +, some of which will challenge most riders.
