       If you ride the full track it'll make you earn the descent. Plenty of rocky patches going up to try your skills at riding over obstacles. It gets really fast on the descent in patches. A little sketchy when wet. You can take the Valley track and drop in at the top of you just want to have fun with the descent.

       Arguably the best trail in the park. The climb is fun and challenging and the decent is well worth it
