A stunning descent from Castle Mountain. Starts off with a series of sharp switchbacks and relatively steep sections before reaching a flowy ridge offering amazing views North. The ridge then climbs to a dramatic point, with killer views South out to Mt Broadwood. After this a series of steeps takes you down to Snoop Lion.

BE AWARE - the trail is still under construction as of September 2018, so the first 300m are hike-a-bike and then it opens out.

Access Info

Look for a right as you head down South Castle, a bit after crossing that sketchy cable.
