Nae Spleens, goofy name for a goofy trail. Well goofy in a WTF kinda way. For such a short trail it packs in quite a punch. A simple enough start sees you flowing through the trees then you hit the first of the drops. From this point onwards it feels like every root and rock is on a mission to dismount you. The second drop isn't long after the first but there is a chicken run to the left that you can use to avoid it. The drop itself has a rocky run in and lands you right into a 90ish degree left turn. There seems to be quite a lot going on in a short space of time here. After this the trail dives down though a series of turns and chutes before a final chute to the road.

This trail is unsanctioned.

      Wet weather last week has made the steeper sections very difficult - there's a top layer of very slippery mud.

      Steep rock garden and trickey drop are pro features in wet conditions. The rest is mint!

      Steady start, that leads into slippery rocks with drops.

      Starts to the right of 3G. Lulls you into a false sense of security... Then gets steep and twisty with big drops followed immediately by sharp...
