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.

      Erosion at the exit has exposed a 4x4 that might trip you up if you catch the corner off camber.

       The badly rotten corpse off a raccoon is in the middle of the trail and nobody wants to move it

       Someone needs to cut out that dangerous handrail they put in. If not I will get to it next week.

       I don't understand, what's the issue with the handrail? it's there for the hikers and to block the braid on the RH side. The Muddbunnies held their beginner ride on LS on Monday, there's lots of pictures of the women riding the wooden ramp and no one seemed to have any issues with the handrail. Please don't make any unauthorized changes to the trail. Thanks.

       Lots of good corners that don't make it too easy for you while still giving you good support.
