An short piece of natural surface single track notable for some flowy turns and a sand mound. Take second turn to the right off the Shit Ponds levee then turn sharp right onto single track. Finishes with a tiny but tricky gully crossing off some double track back onto the Ponds levee. Not marked due to vandalism.

Access Info

Access via the MTB Park trailhead is preferred. However, this trail does provide entry to the network off Kookaburra Drive at Dareton in the event of wet weather or flooding preventing access to the trailhead.
