Fun, fast track with avoidable ladder drops and jumps. Runs parallel to the fenceline track. Access is from the fenceline about 200 meters from the end of car parts and ends on the fenceline at the entry to Highbury Fling.

      Gorse has been cleared from either side! One or two ruts near the end but otherwise nice and smooth, cheers to whoever rebuilt the lip on the hip :)

       Needs a trim. And maybe a bit more flow on the trail to get the jumps good. Maybe my bike sucks. Happy to help make it good

       Needs a bit of TLC to make the track smoother, some dirt could be piled over the really rocky part after the 2 ladder drops. Plants need a trim in places as well
