Space Elevator is a technical two-way XC trail. As a climb it provides the stiffest challenges even for the fittest and best bike handlers. If you have conquered Auto Alley and Rock Block then try this trail next. As a descent it is a bit old school. The trail is narrow, rocky and rooty in places and the corners tight.

The trail is also a useful alternative return back to the top of Touching Cloth and the Dowhnhill trail or as an alternative link to Larry and the Hackett gate using the short cut across Rock Lobster.
