This is the easiest of the Scolty DH tracks. This track starts with two drops (8ft - 4ft) which can be ridden around before going past the jump at the corner of the hill (again, can be ridden around). The trail then plunges into some berms through the fern, before coming to the final section. This section is a double track, (so there are two paths to choose from). This is the easiest and fastest part of the trail. The trail then spits you out onto the fireroad.

Access Info

Get to the top of Scolty hill and ride the Scolty DH Top Section (on the east side of the hill). The trail is the one furthest to the right, and always stays with a wall on it's right.
