With an initial steep challenging incline you really earn the short downhill that follows after which the trail quickly gets you working again on some more lengthy uphill sections before finally rewarding you with a long downhill finish.

Access Info

From the car park, head over the bridge into the main park and immediately turn left at the end of the bridge.

       Unless I'm missing something, this is not a legit trail, let alone a black graded trail! Don't waste your time coming here...
