A very difficult xc trail, includes very skinny single track, steep and technical rock gardens, a very large and difficult rock feature. Lots of short and steep climbs and short, steep descents. This is not an easy trail and should be ridden with caution. Advanced riders only on a capable bike should attempt. Other than the danger it is a fun trail which includes a lot of gorgeous views of the gorge.

Access Info

Enter the trail near the bottom of the gravel car park at the top of gorge road.
