The Swirly Whirly Green Goat (SWIGG) Track is a neat single track that swoops downhill connecting with the top of Starfish.

Built by the Victoria University Mountain Bike Club early 2000, and extended by 250 metres in 2001, top section replaced and old track incorporated into Lazy Fern in 2007 / 2008.
