Awesome trail not for the faint hearted.The trailhead is at the top of Connaught Terrace in Brooklyn. The entry looks like a driveway next to the main sealed track through Prince of Wales Park. Walk to the back of the grassy knoll and look for the gap in the bush. If you can't ride the first two corners it's not a good idea to continue.

Access Info

Off Connaught Terrace, by house 2b. Just walk over the small Park then briefly enjoy the views before bombing down the trail.

There has been a bit of work on the track, some of which is complete and some not. Work is largely completed on the revamp of the bottom...
