Swamp Bypass is one of the most under-rated cross country trails at Vietnam. It is for the most part a fast, flowy and smooth trail on which you can let rip, until you get to the narrow bridge. From there the trail becomes more technical with rocks and some fun climbing closer to the Kitchen End. If you want to continue the more mellow flowy ride, take a left onto While We Can, just after the bridge, and right again a few hundred yards up where it joins a primitive double track. This loop joins up with Swamp Bypass again up front, just before Kitchen and BB..

Access Info

Swamp Bypass starts at Dunster Road. Turn left at the end of Dunster Road or, if you are coming towards Dunster on The Main Trail (over Pete’s Bridge), just carry on straight past Dunster Road on your left. At the other end Swamp Bypass connects with Kitchen Trail or While We Can.
