Nationals is off camber, climbs through switch backs, a solitary berm, very sketchy in places with rock debris and tight uphill turns working across the hillside. The descent is rocky, rolling with off camber trail to the steep exit onto Woodcutters.
The trail provides a link through to Fingertips, then onto Bloody Mary.

Access Info

The trail is accessed off Pirate Trail. After passing through the rock gardens and completing two of the Pirate descending switch back the entry is off the second last switchback.
