Project 9 Details

This is a ride of different sections. Start by staying right from the top unless you want some serious drops as you head down through the forest. You quickly hit the river wash-out area, with various options in terms of trail. Lots of rocks, little drops and river-bed type riding. Once out of that you hit a super flowy section through a cut block with lefts and rights that brings you to the power line. Head straight across and you have a short uphill section that takes you to the roller coaster - little flat sections followed by sudden downs. Super -fun and exhilarating. Watch out for the Lazy Lizard crossing further down - most people now jump onto that to complete the down.

Access Info

Via Project 9 access trail - look for a yellow gate on your left of the Island Lake Road, Project 9 signs on a post next to it.
