Connecting to the main Forrest Mountain Bike Trails trailhead, Roller Coaster takes you on a wide, smooth and free flowing trail. With no obstacles it is ideal for beginners or a quick warm up lap before heading out on a more extended ride.

This is an easy XC track where it rides mellow up and down. Great for introducing people to to XC.
