Grade 3 Intermediate blue jump trail with grade 4 advanced options. About 60 jumps in total over 1.8km. All jumps are rollable and safely built to learn on but check them out before you huck
Named after Pete 'McGnarly' who organised the permission and funding. The 'Nearly' part comes from one of the legendary McGazzas many jokes whilst waiting for Pete to finally hit a jump
The trail was built by Elevate Trail Building and funded by Atlas beer cafe, Veoila, the community trust of Southland and is managed by QMTBC. If you like riding this trail then show your love by joining the club or buying some cool gear
