Left Hand Gully Details
Ah Left Hand Gully. Back when mountain biking was mountain biking this was the bomb.
Back in the 40s-50s it was a road, whether a fire break or access road for the mines I don't know. in the 60s-70s it was used by motos to access the plateau. Then late 70s early 80s it began being used by cyclists.
Through the 90s it was the go to trail for thrill. Then around 20024 a big fire ripped through. Big trees tumbled down and the regrowth was silly think. The trail fell into disuse and nature reclaimed it.
Then in October 2013 the devastating State Mine Forest ripped through the area.
The only good thing that came of that fire was Left Hand Gully rose out of the ashes like the proverbial phoenix.
Now days it would be referred to as a flow trail, or an enduro trail or something. Back then it was just a mountain bike trail
