A good trail in Smiths Gully, very tight with three extremely tight trees. This trail can be ridden in the wet however due to the number of off camber roots and off camber trail it is worth being cautious. A couple of tight switchbacks, three pairs of trees that are very tight and two uprooted trees make for a small margin for error, take care on first lap.

Access Info
