Another legendary trail built by Gary McFarlane, The trail is an easy black, with optional intermediate options (all signed with a chicken).

The trail offers so many different styles of riding - XC, rock slabs, downhill rips, and some interesting wood-work. Definitely one of the highlight trails of the 2013/14 building season.

       One of the best Technical trails ridden with few medium sized rock rolls. Rode as a intermediate black ridder.
