It has a few steeper sections, and a very few low built erosion control features, but it is generally a smooth flowing dirt trail. At only 600m long it's all over pretty quickly, but this trail is a good little extra to be tacked on to another trail.

Access Info

Accessed after riding Gear Jammer. Ride up the double track road 200m after exiting Gear Jammer.

      Some small debris mainly at the top section due to the windstorm. Bigger stuff was moved, nothing blocking.
