Simple Jack is not just for “Simple Jack”; it’s the first stop for new visitors to the park. With the first half of the track crossing the hill face three times, there is time to glance up and soak in the view before hitting the ”mega berm” and dropping into the Redwood forest. After an easy introduction to the track, tell nana to hitch up her stockings and pin her hair back because the second half picks up some real speed as the confidence grows. If you are a beginner rider and want to take it easy or a World Cup winner and want to train down with your mates, this wide flowing track with gentle gradient will keep everybody smiling.
