You were confident enough riding the Mistress and generally like tight and flowy single track thr oughout the native bush? Well there is good news. Maverick Mikes will give you more of everything while stepping up the game a little bit. At the first segment of the track: let go off your brak es and enjoy the g-force with a couple of sweeping bermed corners that lead up to high switchback s with steep exits. You will find yourself flying though a straighter segment and riding the edge of the trail to maintain clearance to your handlebars. The last segment comprises of long back t o back clay berms of various gradient. When wet some of these berms will turn into a mud slide wi th little room to bleed off speed.

Access Info

From The Big Easy: When riding up The Big Easy, opt out, when it is tangent to the 4WD track for the first time.
From The Mistress: Just follow down the Mistress and briefly traverse on the 4X Access Track to have access to a hub of trails. From here your options are: Maverick Mikes, Tims Track, The Big Easy(up/down) or the 4WD Track(up/down).
From the 4WD Track(up): Ride up the 4WD Track until it is fully surrounded by trees - Maverick Mikes will be on your left.

       Definitely not a track for those not comfy with steep corners... but honestly rewarding flow if you can keep control.

       More an advanced grade 4 than an intermediate trail. Would be good if some work could be done on it to make it more consistent with The Mistress which is a great trail. This trail is considerably more difficult than The Mistress even though that are graded the same.
