Another Swinley gem. Released in its current form as part of the Back on Track network in 2013, origins of the trail/hill have been used for years.
Effectively a short climb for a 30'ish second descent. It's all about the descent known as 'Kevlar' but there are many many Strava segments if leader boards are your thing.

Originally designed as a flow trail, it rewards a smooth style, with plenty of lumps and bumps to get wheels off the ground, with opportunity to pump/manual as you desire.
With an pedal effort at the top, it's fast. Take care as it's possible to hit some features very quickly.
All features are rollable, but there's something for less experienced as well as expert riders.
A great trail to practice brake modulation.

Recent trail modifications have seen flow return in abundance. Great fun on an aggressive trail hardtail.
Get your flow on!
