This is an old access trail down to the plank bridge crossing. Unfortunately there is a section which requires stairs to aid traversing a small cutting. The gradient is steep & there are a number of small step downs which can unsettle riders on the way down. Climbing is also challenging. I would suggest Betty Bell as a more suitable trail for most riders.

Was the original trail before Betty Bell was cut in. Since the bridge across the gully was removed trail is recommended for walkers only.

This trail is Unsanctioned, Ride at your own Risk!

Trail only recommended for walkers/hikers.
