The Edge blue trail is rooty and off camber and is challenging at high speed. The Push Up back to the top of the hill is on a make trail with some cut in steps up the steepest parts.

Access Info

Park at the Stoughton Down car park at one end of Stoughton. Go along the main trail and look up to your right until you see the run after a couple of minutes. Beware, it crosses another smaller trail on the way down, so slow down at that point in case of walkers or horses.
