Super D is a collection of trails that all inter-link to create the track that is used annually for the Mt Vic Super D race.

The trail starts at the summit car park of Mt Victoria and makes it's way south towards Newtown, crosses Alexandra Road by the SPCA, then finishes on the grass bank by Wellington Road.

This is a 'Dual Use' area, so please ride within your limits and respect other trail users.

       An intermediate trail all the way along, with a very short Grade 4 rooty section at Bomb Hole, and an optional section before the road crossing in which the rider can choose between a 3 or 4 route.

      Great track for learning basic skills on.

       I'm not an enduro rider but SuperD strikes me as firmly grade 4. It depends on the trail condition and what bike you're on. My experience on an XC bike is that this is harder than Makara's Starfish. There are large sections of SuperD that are basically connecting easy-level trails. The faster you go, the easier it gets.
