Originally and old moto trail, taken over and rejigged for mtbs quite a while ago. Excellent flowing trail through trees and rock formations. Mainly in the shade the whole way down. Recently buffed out, a few small rocky sections, a couple of tight/loose switchbacks, no room for errors on narrow/fast sections that hug the steep hillside, nothing too difficult, would be a blue trail except for the exposure.

Access Info

Off fibreboard freeway after Mt Watson peak trail turn off, at next left corner after straightaway 3 trails start on the right, first is rough moto trail, second is OTB, third is double track to top of hill.
