First track in a series after leaving Blue Spur Range Rd and the lookout point.

Upper section is narrow, fast, exhilarating. After crossing Reg Cox Drive (at pace) you are spat/delivered into the forest section known locally as the 'pump track'; features natural pump shapes created during planting of the forest. The exit spits you back onto Reg Cox Drive.

       Long haul up to the start but well worth it. Before starting the trail just shoot up the hill to the right well worth the view. Then enjoy a sweet bit of singal fast flowy single trail
