Bike only way down to Aro Valley avoiding the last part of Transient (i.e no more walkers). Starts with a couple of reasonable jumps and winds down the valley via a series of bermed corners and man-made features. There's a big drop off half way down, avoidable if you take the right-hand line (this is also steep, but not vertical!). Big props to Brooklyn Trail Builders who have turned what used to be a dump into a near perfect piece of singletrack.

 Best track at Polhill for me! Couple of nice little jumps, awesome berms throughout. Props to the trailbuilders

 This is one of my favourite trails. It flows well with excellent berms. Great natural challenges such as tree roots and small drop offs. A big drop off half way which can be avoided by taking a really steep right fork. Good speed can be generated on this trail. Thank you Brooklyn Trail Builders. A perfect trail.
