Another Hartland favourite and must-ride. Snakes and Ladders winds its way down from the lookout. It is the most sustained downhill in the centre of the park. Riders often link in to Little Face and end on Plunge Extension.
If you are seriously injured on trails in the Bike Park, please inform the Trails Director at: trails@simbs.com.

Access Info

Access is via Dave's Dementia, at the top of Torpedo Run.
