In 2014 Sidewinder was re-designated as an uphill only track. This allows riders who have descended on Eagle vs. Shark or Kataore trails to avoid the forestry road climb of Hill Road to get back to the bulk of trails (and closer to shuttle uplifts) on the singletrack climb of Sidewinder.

Steep pinches will keep the fittest riders challenged. Moderate fitness will see some people walk sections.
