Pony Express is the code name, heads down hill
with lots of chances to push your mate wide on the inside,
turn right at the top of the Pumphill Uphill fire trail.

Easy trail that extends the novice rider with a long descent. Turns, rollers, whoops, drops, small natural berms, lots to keep you happy as you head downhill.

Access Info

Access off the top fire trail on Block C. Normally ride to the top of the hill on Pumphill Uphill Trail and turn right onto the fire trail and head 40 metres to the north (turn right). Share the same entry as Dropbear. Longshanks bears to the left. Sign posted.
