Southpark feels like riding a landspeeder through the forest moon of Endor. It's beautiful, from the smooth berms and rollers, to the creek-spanning rope-railing bridge work and natural coast cedar rainforest. Suitable for riders from even the most beginner blue-level to pro-line, this is a trail to be enjoyed. Amplify everything on Easy Does It by an order of magnitude and you have Southpark, a little something for everyone.

For blue-level riders, this is a fun and creamy smooth trail with no scary surprises, and a rollercoaster-like feel with lots to see and some nice pull-outs around the creeks to take in the scenery and let other riders pass by. Transition to Insomnia for your exit and get ready to work your cornering.
Intermediate access from Garbo: via Una Moss (full) & Expressway

For advanced riders, the slightly tighter corners, slightly narrower trail width, and speed-damping ups offer a fun challenge for time-trialling and roller-scrubbing on a forgiving trail, as well as access to the black diamond mine that is Creekside. As of 2018, the limited access for intermediate riders to the Creekside zone mean there are very few beginner riders to contend with.
Advanced access from Garbo: via Freight Train/No Joke

       Dry, but doable. Getting pretty loose and rutted.

       Awesome way down Creekside, great kickers but watch the tight corners! Topside of berms still wickedly fast.

       In good shape. Some chunks broken out but nothing that bothers your flow
