Sunset Ridge is a fun older style track that has been around for at least 20 years. It starts with some flowy turn through the trees before turning into an old logging track and climbing again for some time. There's some tricky off camber roots as you gather speed again downhill through some slightly rocky bits, then a slightly steep blown out section for about 40 m will keep you on your toes. After that it turns off the old logging track onto some pretty flat, boring modern style switchbacks to finish.

It is rated as a black diamond, but this is very conservative, it's not a difficult track.

Access Info

From the Lactic fire road opposite the end of Incinerator.
