One of the oldest trails on the mountain with a major overhaul in 2013/2014 still retains its technical nature with a little more flow. Used to access C Buster and John Deer, the trail starts with a steep and stepped chute and rock roll (this section can be bypassed via the new “Dickie” alternate), a flattish pumpy section then takes riders to the main decent just after the John Deer trail head. The trail gets steeper as it approaches the Good Sir Martin intersection then steeper still just after before it’s final flowy section to the exit onto Bridle Path. The trail includes a few skinnies all low to the ground, and several small rock rolls, some of which may be dropped, and a few wider ladder bridges.

Access Info

The trailhead is accessed either from the Baden Powell or via the New Severed Entrance from the powerlines. Severed ends at Bridle Path.
