This track has been here for a long time. It's had some changes over that time such as course alterations and jumps added. It has some very rough sections that typify parts of Nerang National Park. The lower part near Casurina has a jump section with a couple of doubles that catch a lot of riders unaware. Take care on the trail, but it is a lot of fun when all jumps are made.
*NTCA has realigned the exit to avoid conflict with uphill riders on Casurina. Trail now merges with Comm Games loop. *

      It's a big climb up the fire road to get to the start but the descent is around 10 mins, so it's worth it. The top part of the trail before the Casuarina Grove Circuit link up is very rocky so if you like rock gardens this is a great trail for you. It can make descending a bit slow going though.

      I only recently downloaded this and realised really how big this mountain is, so personally I have only ridden the lower section with the doubles. That section however is really fun and I am looking forward to riding the rest in the next few days
