Originally hand dug as a climbing trail, now that the low angle benched track across LPC land has been built, this track will no doubt become a popular, easier down track. Otherwise, ride it up for a slightly steeper, faster way to get close to the top. Regardless of the direction you travel, half-way you'll encounter the reverse-loop-corner. Enjoy!

Access Info

From the top of the 4WD track, hang a right up under the Macrocarpa and upwards.

 Rode on 14/9/17. Downhill. Shown in Green on trail map but shown as Blue on marker at the top. In reality mid-way between both grades, your call depending how slow or fast you want to ride it. Five stars to the track builders for the bermed corners, the best bit. Watch for pine needles on the looped corner, go wide. Fun to do.
