Epic riding - fun, bermy trail back down to Burma Road. Some wooden stunts, including a big launch that gives you the option to jump the gap or ride over the the top.

Access Info

Ride up Phat Bastard onto the powerline and head across as though going to Mushroom Head. Right before the Mushroom Head singletrack starts, the entrance to Red Sonja is immediately on your right.
