Section 102 is another old-school classic that winds its way from Emerald to the Cougar Mountain road. It is often linked with Kill Me Thrill Me but is substantially more difficult to clean so prepare for some hike-a-bike unless you are a very strong technical climber. As is the case with the other Emerald trails, the terrain is rocky so make sure so have a spare tube. Beware of the teeter-totter at the very end of the trail - it has claimed many victims over the years!

Access Info

The trail is access from the top of Emerald via the same road as Shit Happens. Bear right as the access road switches back to the water tank and continue taking the right trail past a couple more forks. After a slight descent you reach a small lake....Section 102 starts on the right-hand side. After a few metres, switch-back to the right and start climbing

There were at least two trees down across the trail that we had to lift our bikes over. Otherwise the trail was in good condition.
