One way, purpose built MTB single track. Technically demanding. Lots of sandstone drops, steps and rollovers.

Note this is an MTB only trail (1.5k's of only 3k's in the entire Sydney Basin). There are also k's and k's of walking / running trails that MTB's can not / do not use. Trail Runners - please use the other trails in the area, like Natural bridge that runs next to Serrata, rather than running the wrong way on this trail.

       I would say don't underestimate Serrata just because it's Blue. It's pretty tight and technical in places and it got the best of me at multi stepped drop off. It is a bag of fun though.
