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.
