Lizard is short but ranks as one off the most fun on offer at Tokai. Its slightly off the beaten track but well worth seeking out. Its latest incarnation rose from the ashes of the 2015 fire and has flow like never before. More XC than all-mountain the trail gets a green rating because of its smoothness and relative lack of trail features. Don't be fooled, as some are, ridden as fast as possible Lizard comes to life. Lizard starts next to the DH2 trail head on level 3. Instead of straight down, it heads South at speed, before a series of berms lead to a gentle uphill. Carry speed through the previous corners and you'll barely notice the gradient. Two corners or so later, you hit a gentle, diagonal drop off. Squash it or pull up, that's your choice. A couple more bends and the crux corner arrives. This sharp left hand right angle is tricky and a fast time down Lizard can be won or lost here. Lizards blend of smooth but ultra sticky berms and flatter corners are a winner!
