The Main Trail is one of the spine Trails of Vietnam. It joins the Dunster Road access to Vietnam to NEMBA Way at the top of Rocky Ridge, from where all of the famous Vietnam trails such as Rubberstamp, Mind the Gap, C4 and Dirty Little Secret can be found. AT the start of The Main Trail at Dunster Road, Swamp Bypass turns off to the left. On the way up from the Dunster Road end you pass Swamp Side and Toe Jam on the left, Tonto on the right and then Middle Sister also on the right. A little further up the hill is the Fairbanks Trail to the left At the big Junction, Three Sisters turns off to the right and Teetering Rock to the left. Go straight up The Main Trail, this section is an old motor bike trail and it shows. At the top of this climb you will find the big Nemba Way and The Gig intersection. Choose your pleasure Alternatively you can carry on straight down and around until you get to Dirty Little Secret, from where you can work your way back up to the NEMBA Way trails.

Access Info

The Main Trail can be accessed from the Dunster Road Parking. If you parked at Adams Street, you can cross over either via Tonto or, for the more fun route, via Cross Cut and Middle Sister. To get there you can go by way of Town Forest Trail, Sudden Impact or Deer Way.
