The flowing Skills Loop Trail has berms, tight trees, log rollovers, rollers, table top and bridges.

Tips: - Use the XC skills loop as a warm up before tackling the tricky Relentless Blue climb
- Enter the second half of the XC Skills Loop from Golf Links Rd as a more interesting return from the end of the Relentless Blue and Cool Runnings trails.
