RATBOY Trail
Primeiramente entre 2008 e 2009 foi a pista criada para o projecto '10TH DEGREE' que nunca chegou a ser rodado e a qual esteve em modo secret, podemos ver partes dessa pista lá ao lado com grandes gaps que nunca chegaram a ser finalizados.
Mais tarde os Trail Builders da empresa FREERiDE MADEiRA decidiram apostar nessa montanha encontrando algumas linhas da pista "10TH DEGREE" e onde fizeram um projecto de Raiz reutilizando algumas tabelas e saltos para ser rodado um filme para o atleta Britânico mundialmente conhecido Josh Bryceland - RATBOY.

Inicialmente pensava-se que este trilho seria unicamente para realização desse filme e depois estaria fechado para ninguém rodar ali, mas isso foi mentira.

A apresentação do protótipo da bicicleta nova Santa Cruz Broson que foi filmado em Julho de 2015 pela equipa Cut Media.
Este trilho esteve no segredo dos Deuses fechado durante muitos anos até aparecer o trailforks e revelar esta linha a todos os amantes de Enduro do Planeta.
É um trilho que está desenhado no meio de um bosque de Cryptomeria igual como se fosse um trilho British Columbia - Canadá, trilho de terra batida e com muita pedra, vários saltos duplos pequenos fizeram parte do filme que hoje em dia estão mais abatidos.
Alguns Drops e um River GAP no fim sobre a Ribeira do poço do Bezerro fazem deste trilho a delicia da zona do Poiso.

Cuidado com os Cranks para não partir e no inverno com chuva caso para andar mais no chão do que em cima da bike, só para quem tem experiência.

Access Info

No trilho do Poiso, no fim da reta plana, tem uma entrada á esquerda.
