North Face Details
Steep, technical downhill with a deliberately low key approach to the build. It is natural and raw and will change as it gradually wears with traffic and weather.
This is a serious grade 5 - once it gets steep it stays steep through to the end, so don't take someone down this track in gym shoes and a $400 hardtail. It wont end well.
When the gradient eases there is an old school gap jump, with a B-line to the left. The jump doesn't have much flow so needs a reasonable amount of speed going in to clear it smoothly. It is not rollable, so don't try that!
After riding the first open section of Corridor trail, drop into the pine trees and you'll soon come to three options - Left is the continuation of Corridor. Right is Eastern Spice. Straight ahead is North Face.
