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.
