Rubber Snake Details
When Gary Patterson was building it, he thought someone was having fun with him by leaving a Rubber Snake on the track. Only was he to very quickly reaslise that the snake was very, very real.
This is a favourite descent for many Ross Dam riders.
Trails are off limits to General Public (Rangers patrol issuing fines!) but accessible on weekends and Public Holidays by Rockwheelers Club Members observing the Special Access conditions. Refer to Club Member Access on Rockwheelers website.
