A few high speed sections, a couple of jumps (which are easily avoided if you prefer), and a lot of fast flowing corners.

You'll get to a major singletrack intersection where Pondy trail comes into Roller Coaster. From here it's a little flatter but still predominantly downhill.

There is also another trail at this intersection - straight ahead of you as you ride into the intersection, it climbs up a short hill then descends a re-established old school trail onto Ring Rd. There is not much point to that trail because it doesn't get you any closer to other trails - only really done by riders heading way out the back towards No Brains or even further to Mossy loop.

Access Info

Starts from Chestnut Rd. although 99% of riders access it after riding G Rock. (G Rock flows directly into Roller Coaster).

There is a secondary entrance for the last part of Roller Coaster - Ride up Hill Rd from the Shuttle pick up point then after the hill flattens out and starts to climb again there is an old forestry road to your right. This takes you to the halfway point of Roller Coaster so you can ride the last part of it.
