Slam your seat up, cut those handlebars down and have a crack at this fun single track full of tight trees, berms and rock rolls. Easy to incorporate into a longer Manly Dam loop, with a few different points along the way to bail out.

This trail is one way northbound; do it backwards and run the gauntlet of angry possums.

Access Info

South end entry is off the firetrail. There are access points along the length from Bantry bay road.

This trail is unsanctioned, use at your own risk!

       I Agree. Uphill only. I met 6 riders coming down today. It is a single track and you can't ride it both ways.
