Fast and windy single track. Some drops, especially if you take the upper entrance. Rooty sections and sudden sharp uphills near the start make this a hard one to be in the right gear at the right time.

Access Info

Either via Upper SB off Branch B Road, or head up Kids Stuff from Ridgemont Road and turn right at the sign.
