This trail was built by volunteers in 2017. It begins with a short section in native bush before picking up speed in the pine forest. It traverses the hill with a combination of benched and off camber sections. A steep set of moguls takes you into the bottom section which is fast and technical featuring a few drops, jumps and a wall ride.

Best ridden when dry, the steeper sections can be a handful in the wet.

Recently updated to hold more Flow w. features including Gap Jumps, 'S' Berms and a Wallride.
